Watford will host Tottenham Hotspur at the Vicarage Road
Watford will host Tottenham Hotspur at the Vicarage Road on Saturday in a match from the 23th round of the Premier League. What about to follow is our English Premier League predictions for this clash.
It’s actually fascinating how much a team could change after appointing a new manager. We all see this now since Watford decided to appoint Nigel Pearson to lead the team. Watford’s results are truly impressive – the Hornets are unbeaten in their last five games in the league, winning four of them. Because of this great run the Hornets escaped the relegation zone, now being 17th with 22 points. The fight for survival is not over, though.
We can’t be sure what exactly Pearson have changed in Watford, but one thing is for sure – the team is playing with much more confidence at the moment. Last week Watford visited Bournemouth at the Vicarage Road and they once again showed themselves being merciless. The game ended with a 3-0 win for the visitors. Abdoulaye Doucoure, Troy Deeney and Roberto Pereyra scored for the winning team.
The honeymoon is now gone for Tottenham’s manager Jose Mourinho. After a very promising start of his career at the club, Mourinho is now facing difficulties. Spurs have won just one point in their last three matches, which is more than dissapointing. Tottenham are now 8th in the league with 30 points and it’s not clear if they are going to return to the Champions League next season or not.
In the previous round Spurs had a difficult test against the best team in the league right now Liverpool. They hosted the Reds at their Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, but got beaten and lost with 0-1.
That’s our English Premier League predictions for the game between Watford and Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday. It sounds pretty strange to say it, but based on both teams’ current shape, Watford even look like a favourite here.
