Premier League 17/18: Tottenham Hotspur vs Watford – Lineups, Preview and Prediction
After being dealt a bitter blow last weekend when the Red Devils snuffed out their last remaining hopes of silverware, Tottenham look to pick up the pieces back in the Premier League.
With Chelsea breathing down their metaphorical necks only two points below, a loss would be as damaging to Spurs as a win will prove rewarding.
Without a win now in three games, Tottenham can put themselves on course for a relatively happy ending this season with a ninth consecutive victory over Watford on home territory.
Having failed to win any of their last six matches, Watford are also experiencing a slide. With four of those games not producing any goals for the Hornets, the shoots of recovery are well covered at present.
Javi Gracia is yet to see his side either take a point, or score away from home since he took charge at the end of January, however, his reputation as a giant killer can be enhanced with an impressive scalp at England’s national stadium.
Last Time Out
It took only took 20 seconds for Tottenham to register their intent in this match, Harry Kane flashing an early shot narrowly wide of David De Gea’s goal.
