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.

Andres Iniesta has confirmed he will depart from Barcelona this summer and will be hoping to make the most of his remaining games with Deportivo up next.
The Spanish hero has spent 22 years at Barcelona and provided the foundations for world domination alongside Lionel Messi and Xavi.
With the league title secured, he will be given every chance to go out with a bang – but who else will start for Barca this weekend?
Sergi Samper is the only injury worry, while Sergi Roberto is suspended after being sent off against Celta Vigo.
His replacement Nelson Semedo will slot into his position, with Iniesta expected to patrol the left flank and his heir to the throne, Philippe Coutinho, on the right.
Barcelona (first place; 83 points) can inch closer to the title with three points here, but even a draw won’t do any damage. As for Deportivo (18th place; 28 points), a win is a must if they have any hopes of staying in the top flight, but even winning the rest of their matches still wouldn’t keep them up as they enter the day 12 points from the safe zone.

Manchester United: After their excellent win over Spurs, Mourinho is likely to stick with the same team. The system was able to get the best out of key men Alexis Sanchez and Paul Pogba.
Likely XI: David De Gea: Antonio Valencia, Phil Jones, Chris Smalling, Ashley Young; Nemanja Matic, Ander Herrera, Paul Pogba; Jesse Lingard, Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez.
Arsenal: Given this fixture with United is sandwiched between the UEFA Europa League semi-final games against Atletico Madrid, changes are surely on the cards for the Gunners. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who is cup-tied, should be the most notable returnee. Former United man Henrikh Mkhitaryan is a doubt.
Likely XI: Petr Cech; Hector Bellerin, Calum Chambers, Shkodran Mustafi, Sead Kolasinac; Granit Xhaka, Jack Wilshere, Aaron Ramsey; Danny Welbeck, Alex Iwobi and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
