Tottenham Hotspur vs Watford
England – Premier League
Date: Monday, 30 April 2018
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK
Venue: Wembley Stadium (London).
Tottenham Hotspur will be hoping to return on the winning ways after being without a single vict0ry in last three games across competitions. They lost 1-3 at home to Manchester City before being held by Brighton & Hove Albion to a 1-1 draw away from home in the previous round. Last week they fell to the other Manchester side, losing the FA Cup semifinal to Jose Mourinho’s Red Devils 2-1 at Wembley.
Can Mauricio Pochettino and his men rebound from such failures on Monday evening when they are to close the Matchday No 35 against Watford? It should not be too big of a challenge for Harry Kane & company given they are up against the out-of-form outfit which comes into the game winless in last six league matches.
Watford took only two points along the way and they failed to find the back of the net against the likes of Huddersfield Town and Crystal Palace each in last two rounds.
Tottenham Hotspur vs Watford: Head-to-head
Tottenham have obviously been the dominant figure in the history of head to head encounters with Watford.
The Spurs won 14 and lost just 5 of 23 meetings with the Hornets.
Tottenham won seven on the bounce against Watford before this term’s 1-1 draw in early-December last year at Vicarage Road Stadium.
Tottenham Hotspur vs Watford: Prediction
Tottenham still have a comfortable five-point cushion ahead of Chelsea in the battle for the top-four finish, but they definitely don’t want to complicate things further with another slip-up here. With just four games left to play, we don’t see Pochettino’s troops risking the most elite football competition against the struggling opponent here. We expect the Spurs to dominate the court from the very first whistle and to break the deadlock early on, meaning the main betting option is Tottenham to have the lead at the half time and win the match at the end at the odds of 1.53..
We all know how much Harry Kane is hungry for goals. The English striker is currently five short of Liverpool’s star Mohamed Salah in the race for the Premier League Golden Boot and he will no doubts be particularly motivated to bag as many as possible against the struggling opposition here. You can back Kane to score two or more goals at the 2.40 odds here.
