Watford came from behind to hold Crystal Palace to a 1-1 draw on match day 18. They were coming on the back of consecutive defeats without scoring. And the draw against Palace could add some confidence into the players. Moreover, they were beaten only once at home in the last 8 matches. The Hornets are currently 10th in the league with 22 points from their 18 games.

Tottenham enjoyed a joyous ride at Saint’s Mary stadium last Wednesday. The North London club extended their winning to 3 games by thrashing Southampton with a 4-1 score line. The result at Southampton was their first away win in 9 competitive away games. Tottenham sits 5th on the log with 36 points, 1 short of their city rivals Arsenal on 4th spot.

Watford vs Tottenham: Prediction

Watford is facing a well organised side in a time their league form is a little below average. However, the Hornets have a little inspiration to gather from their recent home record; having garnered 10 points from their last 5 home games.

On the other hand, Spurs are high on great form and good scoring performances. And their convincing away win at Southampton could gear them to a great show in Watford.

Therefore, this will result in a win for Tottenham, but we expect this to be by a very slim margin.
