Premier League

Watford vs Tottenham prediction

HINT: Spurs ODDS: 1.73 1 JAN @ 15:00

Watford and Tottenham Hotspur start the second half of their 2021-22 Premier League campaign at Vicarage Road on New Year’s Day.

The Hornets head into the game on a five-match losing streak in the top flight and just three days on since they were hammered 1-4 at home by West Ham United. No pun intended. The appointment of Claudio Ranieri hasn’t had any positive impact on the Hertfordshire club’s results. It wouldn’t be a huge surprise to see the Italian moved on in the coming weeks if fortunes don’t change in the near future.

Meanwhile Tottenham have found form under Antonio Conte with four wins and three draws in his seven Premier League games in charge after replacing Nuno two months ago. The Italian may have been disappointed to have only drawn 1-1 at Southampton in their last outing as they continue to push for fourth place and Champions League football next season.

The North London club have a great opportunity to gain three points on Saturday against an out-of-form Watford side. The trio of Harry Kane, Heung-min Son and Lucas Moura have all been in fine form this month and I wouldn’t be surprised to see them on the scoresheet in this one.

Make a good start to the New Year by backing Spurs in this one.
