Tottenham vs Watford by Luke

Tottenham is finally in a very good form. After three negative results at the start of the New Year (draws against Everton and Leicester (FA Cup) and a defeat in Premier League against Leicester, the team now has earned five consecutive victories and most importantly, are looking rock solid upfront.

During last five matches they have scored sixteen goals, winning at home over Sunderland 4:1, but taking a four consecutive victories run away from home, starting with a 2:0 victory over Leicester, then 3:1 over Crystal Palace, 4:1 against Colchester in FA Cup and finally, 3:0 impressive win over Norwich last Tuesday evening, three pointer that pushed them to third position at the table now. That victory against Norwich came in rather easy fashion, since they took the lead in second minute already via Alli, looked way more serious and got the three pointer further thanks to goals from Kane in 30th (via penalty) and in 90th minute. Hosts should be playing in 4-2-3-1 formation with Kane as striker. Forward Clinton N'Jie (7/0) and defender Jan Vertonghen (23/0) continue to be sidelined with injuries.

Watford, on the other side, comes from a goalless draw at home against Chelsea on Wednesday night. Despite the fact that Chelsea is nowhere near their real class, players of Watford still can be happy with a point taken in one of the toughest games this season in front of own fans. Overall, the game looked quite balanced with neither of the teams having great offensive day, while the Blues still have more of the ball possession.

Despite that, they failed to have more concrete chances and the draw, could be said, is a fair outcome of this one. With this point taken, Watford remains in ninth position for now, being quite off from the European positions (seven points difference to Manchester United), but also more than satisfying twelve points away from the relegation zone. Guests will probably continue in their usual 4-3-1-2 formation with Ighalo and Deeney as strikers. Visitors can't count at long term absentee central defender Tommy Hoban, while other central back Joel Ekstrand remains unfit for this one. Nathan Ake is available after missing the draw against Chelsea, while another central defender Miguel Britos remains doubtful for this after recovering from illness, but with chances to play inside the starting eleven here.

Tottenham have won their last 5 matches against Watford.

Tottenham have won their last five competitive matches and the team seems at their best this season. Having that in mind, I doubt the Spurs will have bigger problems obtaining another victory over Watford. I expect them to close the deal way before the last quarter of the game.
