Watford vs. Tottenham: ‘Spurs favourites but must be wary of Hornets’ sting’



Tottenham head to Watford on Saturday (12:30 GMT) in what looks set to be a tricky test for José Mourinho’s side.

The hosts blew Bournemouth away last weekend to move out of the relegation zone with a comprehensive 3-0 victory.

Since losing 2-0 at Anfield in his first match in charge, Nigel Pearson has steered his side to an astonishing 13 points from 5 matches. Their front four of Troy Deeney, Gerard Deulofeu, Ismaila Sarr and Abdoulaye Doucouré are looking one of the most dangerous attacking units in the league at present.

tottenham” width=”2248″ height=”1865″ /> LONDON, ENGLAND – FEBRUARY 13 2019: Toby Alderweireld of Tottenham during the Champions League.

Tottenham, meanwhile, have won just one of their last five league matches, but did at least win their midweek FA Cup replay against Championship side Middlesbrough.

They need to find a way to win without the injured Harry Kane and fast if they are to have any hope of catching Chelsea in fourth, which is the final Champions League qualification spot.

The bookmakers believe they will do so here, albeit not with any odds-on confidence, with a Spurs win 11/10.

The draw is 5/2, with a Watford win 23/10.

Given Watford’s current run, 4/6 on them to either win or draw on the double chance looks a very good price.

They could well have too much power in midfield and pace on the break for Spurs to handle at times.

There’s some reasonable value around for anytime goalscorers in this match, too. Son Heung-Min is 2/1, having failed to score in the league since that sensational solo goal against Burnley in early December. He’s too talented for that run to last much longer.

Lucas Moura is likely to lead the line in Kane’s absence and is 5/2, with Dele Alli 3/1.

Doucouré has looked in sensational form of late in a more advanced midfield role and is as high as 11/2 to score anytime, having bagged two in his last three games.

Sarr is 16/5, with Deulofeu 3/1 and penalty-taker Deeney 2/1.

You’d expect a few cards in this one, too, with 13/5 on Etienne Capoué too big in any game, and 3/1 on Danny Rose a good price if he starts given he will be up against the electric Sarr.
