Premier League: Watford vs Tottenham

Watford vs Tottenham Betting Tip and Predictions. In the first match of in Premier League in 2017, Watford host Tottenham at Vicarage Road. Read below betting preview, betting tips, useful info and betting predictions for the match between Watford vs Tottenham.

Watford started this season in Premier League solid and after 18 rounds they are standing in the middle of the table. In the previous round they failed to beat Crystal Palace (1-1) and it was their 3rd game in a row in which they failed to win. Their recent form is not at the high level, so the match against Tottenham maybe doesn’t come in the right moment, but they are playing upfront their supporters and hope that they can make positive result. Home side have managed to win only one of their last 6 league matches, so they can’t afford another poor result. Their attacking duo, Troy Deeny and Odion Ighalo, who played amazing last season, don’t shine this season after they both scored 5 goals. The only shine spot in their squad is Capoue, but he is not constant player, so it will be very hard for them to beat Spurs.

Tottenham stand at the 5th position and their main goal is to finish the season in the Top 4 and play in the UEFA Champions League next season. In the previous round they smashed Southampton 1-4 away and it was their 4th victory in the last 5 games. In the next round they will play against big city rivals and leader on the table, Chelsea, so they will be fully motivated to take three points against Watford and be fully of confidence for the clash against city rivals. Kane and Erikson are playing great this season, but good news for their manager Mauricio Pochettino is that young and very good midfielder Dele Alli woke up and hit the net twice against Southampton. Visitors have very good attack, one of the best in Premier League, while on the other side their defence are also doing good job, but the big blow for Spurs will be the absence of their defenders Vertonghen and Walker, who are both out for this game due to suspension.

Team News

Home side miss Success, Okaka, Janmaat, Behrami, Pereyra and Mariappa due to injury, Cathcart is doubtful, while Britos is out due to suspension. On the other side, visitors will be without Lamela, while Alderweireld is doubtful. Two important defenders Vertonghen and Walker are both suspended for this game.

Watford vs Tottenham Predicted Lineups

Watford: Gomes, Kaboul, Prodl, Kabasele, Zuniga, Holebas, Capoue, Guedioura, Amrabat, Ighalo, Deeney.
Tottenham: Lloris, Trippier, Alderweireld, Dier, Rose, Eriksen, Dembele, Wanyama, Sissoko, Alli, Kane.

Watford vs Tottenham Prediction

Home side is far from the relegation zone and they will be happy to finish the season in the safe zone. Watford will try to do their best in order to make good result upfront their fans, but Tottenham is in the very good form and favorites to win this game. However, I expect interesting match between Watford vs Tottenham on the 1st January and believe that visitors will find the way to take another three points.
