Watford vs Tottenham Match Details
Watford vs Tottenham Kicks-off at 12.30 on Saturday 18 January at Vicarage Road. The match is being broadcast live on BT Sport 1.
Watford looked dead and buried at the foot of the Premier League table before the arrival of Nigel Pearson but four wins and a draw from his last five games in charge have moved them up to 17th spot. There’s still a long way to go to avoid relegation but the return of Troy Deeney to the starting line-up has also had a positive effect.
Watford started their resurgence with a 2-0 win over Manchester United and followed that with a 1-1 draw at Sheffield United. They’ve since beaten Aston Villa 3-0, Wolves, 2-1, and beat Bournemouth 0-3 last weekend.
That’s 11 goals for and just two against in their last five games, which is good by any team’s standards.
Jose Mourinho’s appointment at Tottenham had an immediate positive impact on Tottenham’s form, which saw Spurs win five games out of seven, including away wins at West Ham and Wolves. But they were lucky to get a point at Norwich and have lost their last two to Southampton and Liverpool without scoring in the absence of Harry Kane.
Watford vs Tottenham Head-To-Heads
Spurs have dominated the 13 Premier League matches they have played against Watford, winning eight, losing one, and drawing four. However, six of those wins and two draws have come at home.
Tottenham have only won two of their six matches at Vicarage Road, with Watford winning one, and three ending as draws. More importantly, Watford’s only win came in the corresponding fixture last year when they ran out 2-1 winners. Watford fell behind to an own goal that day but second-half goals from Troy Deeney and Craig Cathcart turned the match around.
