STAR PREVIEW: Watford v Spurs

This should be a cracker, although with the Mourinho saga that’s unfolding the simultaneous Burnley v Man U might well have attracted a bigger box office for SKY.

Watford have made the perfect 9 points from three games start to the season with wins against Brighton, Burnley and Palace and whilst this is undoubtedly their toughest task to date, confidence will be high and this could be a tricky match for Spurs who have made the same perfect start to the season, their wins coming against Newcastle, Fulham and Man U.

Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino said: “We’re going to play on Sunday against a very good team – a team that’s going to fight and is in a very good moment.

“After three games they’re over the moon. Of course if we’re not ready and we believe because we beat Manchester United 3-0 that all is fantastic, I think we are going to crash.”

The same fixture finished 1-1 last season and plenty may have this down for a similar scoreline today. If the Hornets are to win, it will become their first league victory over Spurs since 1987.
