Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho insists he has no issues with goal-line technology after his side played out a goalless Premier League draw at Watford on Saturday.

In a largely uneventful match, Troy Deeney had a second-half penalty saved by Spurs keeper Paulo Gazzaniga before Erik Lamela's stoppage-time effort was cleared off the line by Watford substitute Ignacio Pussetto, who was making his debut for the club. Goal-line technology showed 10.04mm of the ball had not crossed the line.

"We played very well. We started the game without a striker but with lots of offensive players," Mourinho told the BBC. "We had the control of the game, especially in the first half, We arrived in dangerous positions, we created chances but we did not manage to score.

"I am happy with how we played, our commitment. I think the result is unfair, I think it would have been more unfair if we lost. We are not good at adapting to this style of football. We were quite difficult to play."

Despite goal-line technology denying his team a potentially match-winning goal, Mourinho said he had no problem with the decision or the technology in general.

"I know it was only a couple of millimetres but goal-line technology does not make mistakes like VAR. We have to accept it was not a goal," he said. "I love goal-line technology, I respect that."

The draw continues the fine start made by Watford manager Nigel Pearson, who has now guided the club to 14 points in the past six games, and although they missed the chance to win from the penalty spot, the Englishman said he was pleased with his team's efforts.

"It’s football," Pearson said when asked about the penalty miss. "I said to the players I am looking for a performance and we had a good performance today. If we go out with every intention to win the game then we will play well. I am pleased with how we played football today."
