Tottenham V Watford
Saturday 8th April 2017 13:30 Kick Off Live on Sky Sports 1
This will be the 43rd meeting between these two clubs. Of the 42 previous meetings Spurs have won 27, they have drawn 8 and Watford have won 7.
Spurs are unbeaten in their last 10 matches against Watford and have won 8 of them. Last time out in the reverse fixture it was a 4-1 mauling for Spurs. A first half brace from Harry Kane and one either side of the break for Dele Alli was enough for Spurs. Former Spurs man Younes Kaboul did manage a last minute consolation for Watford.
Spurs have been in fantastic form of late winning all of their last 6 games. Last time is was a 3-1 away win against Swansea.
Watford have been in okay form of late winning 2, drawing 1 and losing 3 of their last 6 games. They have won their last 2 in a row
Spurs currently sit 2nd in the Premier League and are 7 points off Chelsea at the top of the league.
Watford are sitting in 10th in the league and a win here could take them above Southampton into 9th.
Spurs will be boosted by the possible return of their star striker Harry Kane who is expected to feature, however, they will have worries in goal as both Hugo Lloris and deputy Michel Vorm who both are doubts for the game.
Watford are without suspended Miguel Britos. They also have defenders Younes Kaboul and Sebastian Prodl out injured. Etienne Capoue, Valon Behrami and Heurelho Gomes all have fitness doubts.
Spurs boss has said he is pleased Harry Kane is back in contention and he will look to see what part he plays if any this weekend.
Watford manager says he is worried about a number of his players being fatigued including striker Troy Deeney due to the fixture congestion.
Spurs are @ 13/50 with Marathon Bet to win this one. The draw is 11/2 with most firms including Bet365 and Watford are @ 14/1 with a few including BetVictor.
I fancy another Spurs win here as Watford have not won here since 1985 and they have such a depleted squad.
