Tottenham will be looking to close the gap to 3rd placed Liverpool when they host Watford at Wembley in an English Premier League fixture on Monday night.
Tottenham v Watford – click here to bet
Spurs are currently 4th on the table, 4 points behind Liverpool but with 2 games in hand. The dropped 2 points last time out when drawing 1-1 away at Brighton and in their last home start they went down 1-3 to Man City. That loss broke a run of 4 successive home wins without conceding a goal and included top 6 opponents Manchester United and Arsenal.
Watford are 12th on the table on 38 points and are not yet mathematically certain to stay up although they have more than likely done enough. Their recent form has been terrible and they have only taken 2 points from the last 18 they have played for and on the road things look even worse and they have only taken 1 point out of 30 and have not scored in their last 6 away games. Chelsea, Liverpool, City and Arsenal have all won by more than a goal when they have hosted Watford.
Spurs won this fixture 4-0 last season and the sides played to a 1-1 draw at Watford earlier this season.

Suggested Bet: Handicap, Tottenham -2 at 11/10
There is nothing in their recent away form to suggest Watford can trouble Spurs here and I cannot look past a comfortable home win and will be betting on the winning margin being 3 goals or more.
