Tottenham Hotspur Starting XI Prediction at Watford FC


Tottenham Hotspur have made their first addition of the January transfer window, with the announcement and unveiling of midfielder Gedson Fernandes earlier today. He will probably feature on Saturday, when Spurs visit Watford in the first game of the next Premier League weekend. 

Don’t expect him to start however. Spurs’ visit to Watford is sneaky tough. Not only is momentum going against them, but their opponent now has an unforeseen advantage when it comes to rest and relaxation.

Both sides were supposed to be in FA Cup replay action on Tuesday evening, as Watford faced an away trip to League One side Tranmere Rovers. However, adverse weather conditions forced the Watford-Tranmere fixture to be postponed until next week, and now the Hornets have a full week to prepare for this one. 

Meanwhile Spurs did not, but hey, at least they won.

Spurs are really banged up right now, and these are two sides traveling in opposite directions. It’s hard to believe that this Mourinho led Spurs team could lose at Watford and it really wouldn’t be too much of a shock.
