Watford vs Tottenham / Premier League – The last match of the fourth round of English Premier League brings us duel between two teams with perfect score after first three rounds, where Tottenham is positioned above its city rival Watford only due to a bit better goal difference. In previous matches between the two teams the Spurs have had far more success as they won eight and drew two matches, and it is interesting that both those draws were played in last two season when their head-to-head were played at Watford stadium.

Right because of that Watford fans believe their team can stay undefeated at home, regardless they are well aware that this is the most difficult match by now this season. In first three rounds Watford won Brighton and Crystal Palace at home, and Burnley away, while last week they routinely won second-division Reading 2-0 despite playing practically with reserve team.
It is natural that excellent start of new season has open apetite of Watford fans but manager Garcia calls for caution and reminds that the main objective is to secure survival in the Premier League as soon as it is possible. It doesn’t mean he will throw in the towel in advance in match with very good Spurs, especially as all starter in the league have had rest in the League Cup, while due to injuries still out of action are stoppers Kaboul and Britos, midfielder Cleverley and forward Deulofeu.
Probable lineups Watford: Foster – Janmaat, Cathcart, Kabasele, Holebas – Hughes, Doucoure, Capoue, Pereyra –Gray, Deeney
While Watford good results at the beginning of new season are indeed a pleasant surprise it was expected from Tottenham to be near the top of the table after three rounds. The Spurs were especially motivated last weekend as they won difficult away match with Manchester United by even 3-0. Before that they won Newcastle away 2-0and newcomer Fulham at home 3-1, so manager Pochettion is quite surely satisfied with resulted made at the beginning of new season.
On top of it, the team’s best scorer Kane has finally starter doing what he is paid for, while Brazilian forward Lucas Moura was a very nice surprise as he scored one goal against Fulham and even two against the United. Because of that absence of South Korean Sone is not felt at all, who is at the Asian games with South Korea national team for some time now. We should add that team’s first goalkeeper Lloris, midfielder Wanyama and forwards Lamela and Janssen will skip the Sunday’s match due to injuries.
Probable lineups Tottenham: Vorm – Trippier, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Davies –Dier, Dembele – Lucas, Eriksen, Alli – Kane
Watford vs Tottenham PICK
Having respect for all what Watford did so far we nevertheless believe that they don’t have much chance against very good Spurs, especially as Tottenham strikers are in fantastic shape at the moment.
