Watford and Tottenham Hotspur are set to produce an open contest in their English Premier League clash at Vicarage Road. The Hornets have impressed in recent weeks, and driven by captain Troy Deeney and can hold their own against an out of sorts Spurs.

Watford Form


Watford climbed out of the Premier League relegation zone over the weekend with a 3-0 victory at Bournemouth. Abdoulaye Doucoure and Troy Deeney were on target in each half before Roberto Pereyra came off the bench to grab the third.

The Hornets in great form since the arrival of manager Nigel Pearson and head into Saturday’s match unbeaten in their last six matches, claiming four wins in that run.

The goals have also flown freely for Watford in recent weeks with Captain Troy Deeney finding the net four times in his last five matches. 

Watford News


Defender Christian Kabasele is set to return after serving a suspension, Roberto Peyrera is pushing for a start after coming off the bench to good effect at Bournemouth. Kiko Femenia, Daryl Janmaat and Tom Cleverley remain sidelined with injury.

Tottenham Form


Tottenham are coming off a home 1-0 defeat to leaders Liverpool in their last Premier League outing. They will be disappointed to have come away empty handed having missed  chances and forced a number of saves from goalkeeper Alisson. 

Jose Mourinho’s men progressed to the fourth round of the FA Cup with a 2-1 win in their replay with Middlesbrough. Giovani Lo Celso and Erik Lamela scored in the first 15 minutes of the game to give Spurs the win.

The problem for Spurs lately has been a leaky defence having failed to keep a clean sheet in their last six Premier League matches.

Tottenham News


Harry Kane remains sidelined with injury alongside Tanguy Ndombele and Moussa Sissoko. Young centre back Japhet Tanganga earned lots of plaudits for his performance against Liverpool and could be given another start on Saturday.

Watford vs Tottenham Head to Head


Tottenham have a 17-6 advantage with five draws from 28 previous matches against Watford. There has been over 2.5 goals in three of the last four meetings, although the reverse fixture at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium ended 1-1. Abdoulaye Doucoure's early opener for Watford was cancelled out by Dele Alli. 

Watford vs Tottenham Betting Odds


Watford are outsiders at home at odds of 3.25 with a draw valued at 3.60. Tottenham are favourites among bookmakers to win at Vicarage Road at odds of 2.10. Having produced over 2.5 goals in three of their last four meetings a similar outcome is paying 1.80 with BTTS offered at 1.66.

Troy Deeney’s run of four goals in his last five matches means he is priced at 2.75 in the anytime goalscorers market while the first goal is valued at 6.50.

Watford vs Tottenham Match Up


Watford’s resurgence has been driven by the return of captain Troy Deeney, who has four goals in his last five matches. Ismaila Sarr and Gerard Deulofeu have also been among the goals lately and all three men should trouble the Spurs defence.

Without the injured Harry Kane Spurs lacked the cutting edge in attack against Liverpool. While Son Heung-Min and Lucas Moura are expected to trouble the Watford backline with their pace and movement, they are not as prolific as the England captain.
