After 5 wins, 7 draws and 10 losses, the home team is currently in 17th position, with 22 points won. In his last match, he won the AFC Bournemouth away by (0‑3), after in the previous match having won by (2‑1) at home, in a match against Wolverhampton Wanderers. This is a stronger team with the support of his fans, since in the last 30 games he has 4 wins, 3 draws and 8 losses as a visitor; against 6 wins, 5 draws and 4 losses in his stadium. In his last 10 home games for the championship Watford won 3, drew 4 and lost 3, so he won 13 points in 30 possible. In their home league games the most frequent final result at the break was 0-0 (5 in 11 games). In 22 games in this competition, he never got the comeback in the 10 games in which he suffered the first goal. In the last 11 home games for this competition there is 1 period that stands out: he scored 4 of his 11 goals between minutes (46′ ‑ 60 ‘).

Watford comes to this match with a 0-3 victory over Bournemouth, adding their third consecutive victory in the league: the team’s goals were scored by Roberto Pereyra, Doucouré and Deeney. We remind you that the home team is going through a very positive phase in their stadium, having won the last three games. Coach Nigel Pearson must keep the team at 4-3-3, in favor of the block organization and counterattacks across the flanks. Deulofeu is one of Watford’s top scorers, with 4 goals scored. For this match, the coach cannot count on Cleverley, Janmaat and Prodl, all injured.

Tottenham Hotspur:

The visiting team is currently in 8th position, with 30 points won, after 8 wins, 6 draws and 8 losses. In the penultimate match, he lost out against Southampton by (1-0). In the last game, he lost at home against Liverpool by (0-1). This is a stronger team with the support of his fans, since in the last 30 games he has 3 wins, 6 draws and 6 losses as a visitor, with 21 goals scored and 24 suffered; against 9 wins, 2 draws and 4 losses in his stadium, with 34 goals scored and 21 suffered. The team comes to this match after a home victory with Middlesbrough by (2‑1). For the championship, Tottenham Hotspur conquered 9 points in 30 possible, after 2 wins, 3 draws and 5 losses in the last 10 games he played as a visitor. His defense has not been very solid, since he suffered goals in 9 of the last 10 games, but his attack has scored regularly, since he scored goals in 7 of the last 10 games for this competition. In their home matches there is a tendency for goals, since 9 of their last 11 matches for this competition have ended with Over 2.5 goals. In 22 games in this tournament, he suffered the first goal 11 times and only got 2 comebacks. There is 1 period that stands out in the last 11 away matches for this competition: he suffered 7 of his 20 goals between minutes (61′-75 ‘).

Tottenham arrives motivated to this match, after advancing to the next round of the FA Cup, beating Middlesbrough 2-1. However, we point out that the visitors do not win three consecutive games for the English league, after having added a defeat in the last game, against Liverpool. In this match against Watford, coach José Mourinho should keep 4-3-3, with Heung-min Son in the most advanced position of the away team. Toby Alderweireld is the master of the defensive line: this central defender is very strong in the air game. For this game, the local coach cannot count on Davies, Kane, Lloris and Sissoko, all with physical problems.
