Watford vs Tottenham England – Premier League Date: Saturday, 1 January 2022 Kick-off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET Venue: Vicarage Road.
After suffering losses against London clubs Brentford and West Ham in back to back fixtures, Watford in abysmal form is set to take on yet another London club, Tottenham in their quest to survive relegation.
Tottenham would be frustrated with the outcome on the last matchday. However, being undefeated in two months the club are favourites to come away with the win.
Spurs were last held by Southampton away from home to a 1-1 draw, despite having a 1-man advantage for over an hour in the fixture.
Avoiding defeat in their previous seven league matches, the club has managed eleven points from their previous five Premier League fixtures.
Consequently, the team is 6th in the league table, five points behind a spot in the Champions League. They however do have two games in hand over the clubs above them in the table.
The Hornets in their previous match suffered a 1-4 hammering by West Ham away from home. This result marked their 5th consecutive loss, following their 4-1 win against Manchester United.
With just three points from their last eight matches, the club is currently just outside the relegation zone in 17th position, a couple of points clear of 18th place Burnley.
Watford vs Tottenham Head-to-head
The Golden Boys have failed to win any of their last five fixtures against this side.
Both teams scored in five of their previous seven duels.
Three of their last five competitive h2h fixtures involved less than 3 goals.
The visitors have failed to win at this venue in their previous 3 trips.
Watford vs Tottenham Prediction
The Lilywhites have just one win in their previous 6 league fixtures away from home and just a couple throughout the season. However, with the hosts on a 5-match losing streak, I have backed the visitors to gain the upper hand.
While the Hornets have failed to gain any points in their last five fixtures, they have scored at least once in six consecutive matches.
To add to that, Spurs have conceded in five of their last six matches and so expect goals from both clubs.
