Tottenham Hotspur hosts Watford
Tottenham Hotspur hosts Watford at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in a game from the 9th round of the league. Let’s examine this fixture in the capital in our English Premier League predictions for today.
Last season Tottenham reached the final of the Champions League, but now times are hard for Spurs’ manager Mauricio Pochettino. The Londoners are pretty average since the start of the campaign, currently being 9th in the league standings with 11 points won. The team’s record in the league do not look very convincing, too – three wins, two draws and three losses.
Because of this, there are some rumours already that Tottenham’s manager Mauricio Pochettino could be sacked. This was something which you could hardly believe at the end of the previous season, but it’s true that Tottenham are struggling right now.
In their last game Spurs lost again. They visited Brighton & Hove Albion at the American Express, losing with 0-3. Just few days earlier Tottenham conceded seven goals against Bayern Munich in the Champions League. How you can see, the situation is far from perfect.
Meanwhile Watford are having an incredibly difficult season so far. Right now the Hornets are at the bottom of the table with just 3 points won. The club sacked the manager Javi Gracia and replaced him with Quique Sanchez Flores, but Watford are still without a win since the start of the season.
In the previous round the Hornets won a point, though. Watford hosted Sheffield United at the Vicarage Road and secured a point after a 0-0 draw. But it’s a fact that the Hornets are still the only team in the league so far without a win.
In our English Premier League predictions for today we think that Tottenham will give their all to beat Watford at home on Saturday. For them this is a perfect chance to take a breath of fresh air. They really need it.
