Tottenham vs Watford Match Preview
Tottenham Hotspur’s season has taken a downward turn over the last week or so. After managing to take fellow Londoners Chelsea to a penalty shoot-out in the semi-final of the EFL Cup last Thursday but eventually succumbing to defeat, the Lilywhites were then knocked out of the FA Cup by another London club, Crystal Palace, on Sunday afternoon, leaving chances of a first trophy for Mauricio Pochettino looking unlikely to happen in this campaign.
That said, the Argentinian boss and his team still sit in a lofty position of third in the table and they are through to the knock-out stages of the Champions League. They return to Wembley for four consecutive home matches in all competitions now, but with several key players including Dele Alli and Harry Kane still on the injury table, they’ll want to return to winning form as quickly as possible by picking up three important points in this game at 4/6 with BetVictor.
Watford are looking like a good bet for a potential European jaunt next year as things stand. With Chelsea and Manchester City set to face off in the EFL Cup final, it looks like more spots will open up for qualification to the Europa League through Premier League positions and although they haven’t really been able to keep pace with the top six, the Hornets have been the best of the rest so far in this campaign and have fully deserved their current 7th placed spot based on showings so far.
After a blistering start eventually showed signs of slowing up, the Hornets have embarked on another run of just one defeat in their last ten games in all competitions to rise back up the table and progress through to the Fifth Round of the FA Cup and confidence appears high in Javi Gracia’s squad at the moment. Having already beaten Tottenham once in the Premier League this term, can they do the double over the Lilywhites here at odds of 63/13 with Unibet.
With the home advantage, Tottenham should be able to bounce back to winning form here, especially with the likes of Toby Alderweireld, Heung Min Son and Christian Eriksen being welcomed back into the fold. Spurs’ last two wins have been by just one goal though and this Watford side are on a roll at the moment and won’t lie down here, particularly after beating Pochettino’s side in the reverse fixture back in September. We’re anticipating a narrow, one goal home win at 12/5 with Paddy Power.
Heung Min Son returns from the Asian Cup for this Premier League clash after South Korea were knocked out by Qatar on Friday. The 26 year old had racked up seven goals in his last eight appearances for Tottenham before being called away on international duty and he will be expected to lead the line here in the absence of Harry Kane so we’re backing him to return with a goal at odds of 6/5 with Unibet.
