An interesting match pitting teams with contrasting forms. Tottenham’s form has dipped recently and especially so on their travels away from Wembley. Consequently, Mauricio Pochettino’s men have dropped to 7th, 16 points behind leaders Manchester City.
Watford suffered a defeat against Manchester United midweek and have lost 4 out of their last 6 Premier League games. Marco Silva’s men will relish the thought of playing against an out of form Tottenham as they try to return to winning ways.
The midweek loss at the King Power stadium meant that Spurs have lost three consecutive league games for the first time since March 2014. Tottenham have won all the last four Premier League meetings against the Hornets. This sets up an evenly poised match at Vicarage Road.
