Watford vs Tottenham

Tottenham may not have the best of season, but they will have good memories of their big win here at Vicarage Road on New Year's Day. Harry Kane and Dele Alli got a brace each in a 4-1 win.

It extended Watford's miserable record against the Londoners, who they have never won in eight matches (D2, L6).

The Hornets are spiraling down the table as well, their 4-2 midweek loss to Man Utd marking their fourth defeat in their last six EPL games, conceding 12 goals in that stretch.

As for Spurs, they have also lost three consecutive away league games for the first time under Mauricio Pochettino. And this is the time for the Lilywhites to give their manager something to cheer about.

Harry Kane can lead the revival, having netted 14 goals in his last eight away EPL games.

Watford midfielder Will Hughes is out after limping off with a hamstring injury in Man Utd defeat.

Defender Miguel Britos could return from the knock he picked up at Newcastle last weekend.

Harry Winks is available for Spurs selection after recovering from illness.

However, midfielder Victor Wanyama and centre-back Toby Alderweireld remain long-term absentees.

Prediction: Watford 1-2 Tottenham
