Heurelho Gomes made two excellent saves in the second half to preserve a Watford clean sheet against Chelsea at Vicarage Road.
Watford were the better team in the first half of the match but couldn't break through against Thibaut Courtois. In the second half it was Chelsea who were the better side who couldn't put the ball past the opposing goalkeeper. First Branislav Ivanovic put a short range effort right at the former Spurs shotstopper and then Gomes had to dive to his left to keep out header bound for the top corner from the head of Diego Costa by way of a slight deflection off of Allan Nyom. Gomes certainly looked like he is feeling the pressure created by the arrival of Costel Pantilimon. Feb 3 - 4:52 PM

Heurelho Gomes travelled back with his Watford teammates on Saturday evening after the goalkeeper was given the all-clear having been stretchered off at Villa Park.

More than ten minutes of time were added as Gomes received lengthy treatment following a collision with Craig Cathcart. The defenders knee caught Gomes in the head and the veteran goalkeeper was left motionless on the Villa turf as his neck was carefully placed inside a protective brace before being carried off on a stretcher. Initial post-match reports indicated that Gomes may have been knocked unconscious with the possibility of concussion, however, a Watford official later confirmed that scan results were clear. Gomes also provided an update via social media. "Hi everyone, thanks for the messages, really appreciate. I'm much better now, my neck still very stiff, but I will be fine! On my way home!" His replacement, Giedrius Arlauskis, came on for his first Premier League appearance having signed from Romanian side Steaua Bucharest in the summer.

Gomes saw one Glenn Murray shot go past him from open play but he denied the former Crystal Palace man from the spot late in the match to preserve a 1-1 draw for the Hornets.

For the second weekend running, Quique Flores' men gave up a penalty that could have cost them the match. Last weekend Yohan Cabaye made no mistake and sent the Hornets to defeat from the spot. This weekend, with the score tied 1-1, Glenn Murray was unable to beat Gomes and a point was preserved. The Hornets will still be disappointed in the outcome given the extent of Bournemouth's injuries to their biggest two offseason acquisitions as well as leading scorer Callum Wilson. Also of note was the start of Nathan Ake on the left side of the defense for last weekend's guilty party Allan Nyom.

Heurelho Gomes and the Watford defense made a valiant effort for the first half but couldn't keep the City attack at bay for the entire 90 minutes and capitulated at the Etihad in Week 4 action.

Gomes was called upon frequently in the first half as Watford parked the bus in an attempt to frustrate Manchester City. It worked for 45 minutes as the teams went into halftime scoreless but it didn't last as Manchester City came storming out almost immediately after the second half kick-off. Bacary Sagna's cross put Raheem Sterling in and Gomes had no chance to stop him for the opener in the 47th minute. Fernandinho crushed a drive past Gomes in the 56th minute and that was the end of the scoring as City cruised to a 2-0 victory.

Tottenham have confirmed goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes will be leaving Tottenham when his contract expires in June.

Yes, Gomes is still at Spurs. The 33-year-old has been third choice behind Hugo Lloris and Brad Friedel for the past two seasons but has not made an appearance for the club since 2011 and spent a portion of last season on loan at Hoffenheim. Gomes will leave the club on a free transfer and it's likely he moves abroad rather than staying in the Premier League, where he developed a poor reputation after numerous high-profile mistakes.

Tottenham's forgotten goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes is a target for three clubs as he looks to secure a move away from White Hart Lane.

Yes, Gomes is still at Spurs. The 32-year-old is third choice behind Hugo Lloris and Brad Friedel and spent a portion of last season on loan at Hoffenheim. He came close to a permanent switch to the club only for AVB to block the move at the time, but it appears he'll finally be allowed to move on this time. Although there is no mention of the three clubs interested in the former Brazil keeper, it's more likely he'll move abroad rather than stay in the Premier League where he developed a poor reputation after numerous high-profile mistakes.
