Watford vs Tottenham PredictionWatford vs Tottenham Prediction and Preview for Saturday's EPL fixture. Vicarage Road will be center stage as Watford play host to Tottenham in a tense English domestic affair. The hosts are on a sort of resurgence with three consecutive wins walking into this clash while the hosts are winless in their last 3 and evidently not that solid even with the ingenuity of Portuguese tactician Jose Mourinho. Who will fare better in this encounter?
Match status: 2019/20 Premier League - Matchweek 23
Kick-off:
Venue: Vicarage Road (Watford)

Some weeks ago, Watford was languishing in the deepest pits of relegation and surely destined for the drop. A change of fortunes was badly needed and the club’s hierarchy had to fire their tactician to turn things around. They looked to Nigel Pearson for inspiration and they got just that. In their new coach, they found someone who is used to the league’s intrigues: both as player and coach and his results were near-instantaneous.

Under his watch, the Hornets have only lost only once in 7 matches while scoring over 2.5 goals in 5 of the 7. An emphatic 3-0 win over Bournemouth last weekend goes to show Watford’s new-found resolve and determination. Against Tottenham, Watford will not be easy push-overs and might even go all the way for a victory here.

Watford is not well out of relegation danger at 17th but a win here would propel them 3 places up the ranks in what could be a perfect launching pad to save their season. They are very likely against a frail opponent in under-par Spurs.

For Tottenham, the Lilywhites-Mourinho party has seemingly come to an end. Save for a midweek 2-1 win over Middlesbrough in domestic cup ties, Spurs are winless in their last five matches including a slim 1-0 loss to table-toppers Liverpool in their most recent league action. They currently sit 8th with 4 points separating them from a Europa League berth and 9 from a Champions League spot.

Will the master Portuguese tactician prove his coaching mettle? It might not be a walk in the park. After all, Spurs have the leakiest defense among the top 10 sides. Even Mourinho admits that work needs to be put in the Tottenham squad and this is bound to be a tough trip for them especially with English forward Harry Kane out injured.

Watford vs Tottenham Predictions

Mourinho’s Spurs have failed to keep a clean sheet while playing away from home and against a revived Watford side, it will be tough keeping the prowling Watford’s attacking fronts away. The away side can find comfort in the fact that they have been coming out on top in meetings between these two sides having won 12 of their 18 meetings. It will not likely count for much in this encounter where plenty of goals are expected.
