Tottenham v Watford

Tottenham have regained their winning form in recent weeks ahead of their clash with Watford at White Hart Lane on Saturday.

Spurs have only suffered three defeats this season, the most recent of which was a 1-0 loss to Leicester City last month. They have gone on to win their next three league games, scoring 10 goals in the process to climb to third in the standings. They have also won their last five in a row across all competitions, including a 2-0 FA Cup revenge over the Foxes.

Watford seemed to have recovered from an earlier stumble that saw them lose four in a row, but a victory over Newcastle followed by a 0-0 draw with Chelsea in midweek seems to have steadied the ship. They were defeated 2-1 by Spurs when the two met at Vicarage Road earlier in the league, but will be hoping for at least a point from their short trip to London.

Spurs will be hoping to have young English stars Dele Alli (illness) and Ryan Mason (ankle) available for the match, but will be without Belgian defender Jan Vertonghen (knee ligament) and Cameroonian forward Clinton N’Jie (knee).

The Hornets should have Uruguayan defender Miguel Britos back from illness, meaning that Swedish defender Joel Ekstrand (anterior cruciate ligament) remains their only injury absentee.
