Watford

Watford (5-7-10 win-draw-loss, 22 points) is having an amazing five-game stretch where they have gone 4-1-0. The unbeaten run pulled them out of the last place and are now in 17th ahead of Aston Villa. The three teams with the lowest points at the end of the tournament will be relegated to the second-tier English Championship and the Hornets’ recent surge show they want to stay. In their wins against Bournemouth, Wolverhampton, Aston Villa and Manchester United, Watford’s defense was outstanding, allowing just one goal and saved 14 shots on goal. They will need more of these against Tottenham, who will parade four booters that scored at least four goals during the season.

Players to Watch: Gerard Defoleu (4 goals, 3 assists); Ismaila Sarr (3 G, 1 A); Troy Deeney (3 G); Abdoulaye Doucoure (3 G, 1 A); Andre Gray (2 G).

Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham Hotspur (8-6-8, 30 points) play Watford as they look to bounce back from 0-1 losses against lower-ranked Southampton and Liverpool. In their last game against Liverpool, the Spurs allowed the Reds to control 2/3 of the match. They also let the league-leaders feast on their defense with seven shots on goal. A first-half goal by Roberto Firmino in the 37th minute was all Liverpool needed to take home the victory and remain unbeaten in 21 matches. Tottenham had several chances to tie the match and share the spoils but all of them were fruitless. They hope to avoid another fruitless day in offense in their fixture against Watford with Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Son Heung-min leading the charge.

Players to Watch: Harry Kane (11 goals, 2 assists); Dele Alli (6 G, 3 A); Son Heung-min (6 G, 7 A); Lucas Moura (4 G, 1 A); Moussa Sissoko (2 G, 1 A).
