Watford v Tottenham Hotspur – Vicarage Road Premier League – Saturday 12:30pm

Watford v Tottenham Hotspur – Preview:

Unpredictable Spurs head to Vicarage Road for a Saturday lunchtime Premier League showdown against a Watford side unbeaten in five and progressing nicely under the guidance of Nigel Pearson and Craig Shakespeare.

The Hornets moved out of the dropzone with a comfortable 3-0 victory at AFC Bournemouth last time out. Meanwhile, despite making FA Cup progress at the expense of Middlesbrough during the week, Spurs have won once in five league matches, a sequence of results which has made a top-four finish look increasingly unlikely for Jose Mourinho’s men.

Mourinho could include Portuguese midfielder, Gedson Fernandes, who joined the Lilywhites on an 18-month loan from Benfica. The 21-year-old – who also caught the eye of West Ham United – insisted he is delighted to have arrived in N17, telling www.tottenhamhotspur.com: “I’m very happy to be here today – I make my dream a reality.

“For me, it’s one big dream to come to this big Club. I will try to give my best for the Club every day, in every training session and in every game and I will try to help the team wherever I can, working hard every day for this shirt.”
