Dele Alli was making his first Premeir League start of the season

Dele Alli rescued a late point for Tottenham to deny Watford a first Premier League win of the season amid video assistant referee confusion.

Hornets keeper Ben Foster flapped at a cross, with Alli controlling with his shoulder before turning the ball into the net.

The video assistant referee reviewed the goal and decided it was correctly awarded. The big screen, however, indicated that the decision was ‘no goal’. After a spell of confusion, the goal stood.

It had looked like Mauricio Pochettino’s side were going to suffer a fifth defeat in six games.

Watford, who lost Danny Welbeck to an early hamstring injury, took the lead when Abdoulaye Doucoure swept home Daryl Janmaat’s cross.

And they had a strong penalty appeal turned down by referee Chris Kavanagh and the VAR when Jan Vertonghen brought down Gerard Deulofeu.
