After another weekend of entertaining Premier League action, attention turns towards Wembley on Monday where Tottenham and Watford meet. The hosts are in 4th with Chelsea breathing down their necks while the visitors are safe in 13th.
The head-to-head record between these two London clubs doesn’t look good for Watford. The last time the Hornets beat Spurs was in 1987 and they have been beaten in nine of the 13 meetings since. Watford came close to beating them when they met in December, drawing 1-1 against a 10-man Tottenham side. Watford have scored just twice in their five away visits to Spurs since the beginning of the Premier League era.
This has turned into a must-win game for Spurs with Chelsea just two points behind. Danny Rose and Harry Winks are still both injured and the latter isn’t expected to feature for the remainder of the campaign.

Watford are on the beach in many ways and this game holds no real meaning other than preserving pride. Gerard Deulofeu may return to the side as will Troy Deeney. Roberto Pereyra faces a late fitness test and Stefano Okaka is out for the rest of the season.

With Watford having nothing to fight for at this late stage of the season, this game favours Tottenham massively and it could be a huge win for the North London side. The importance of this game has been increased as a result of Chelsea’s win on Saturday but Spurs should rise to the challenge and come away with a vital three points.
