What is Watford and Tottenham's form ahead of this match?
Watford managed to leave the relegation zone with their third win in a row last week. Nigel Pearson's men have won four out of their last five Premier League games, with their last loss taking place against Liverpool on December 14 (2-0). Two of their last three wins have seen the Hornets prevail with ten men on the pitch, since Adrian Mariappa was sent off against Aston Villa and Christian Kabasele was also red-carded against Wolverhampton one week later.
Tottenham began the Jose Mourinho era with a string of wins, but their latest form has seen them lose three out of their last five EPL games, including a heart-breaking 1-0 loss against Liverpool last week. This is not an uncommon thing for Mourinho's crew, since they have lost five of their eleven EPL games this season, with only two wins when playing far from home.
What is Watford and Tottenham's position in the English Premier League?
Watford enters this game in 17th place in the Premier League, following their third straight win. The Hornets left relegation spots for the first time this season, which could explain the amount of goals they have conceded (34). The Hornets have scored 20 goals this season, with Troy Deeney and Gerard Deulofeu scoring four.
Tottenham makes it to Matchday 23 in eighth place of the English top-flight, having won the same amount of games as the ones they have lost (8). Mourinho's men have scored 36 goals, which is not bad, but their defense has conceded 31 times, which has hindered their chances of success. Harry Kane, with eleven goals, is the team's top scorer, but he will not be around due to a muscular injury for a long time, according to reports.
