Predicted Tottenham Line-up To Face Watford In The Premier League
After a slew of disappointing results, Tottenham host Watford on Monday. Spurs recently crashed out of the FA Cup after suffering a painful defeat to Manchester United, ending their hopes of winning silverware this season. However, it is important for the boys to pick themselves up and soldier on for the remaining games of the ongoing campaign.
Watford are currently placed 12th in the league standings and this game will be important for them to fuel their hopes of finishing in the top-ten and Javi Gracia’s men are more than capable of causing an upset.
Probable Tottenham Hotspur XI
Manager: Mauricio Pochettino
Hugo Lloris (GK)
After Pochettino’s decision to play Michael Vorm ahead of Lloris for the FA Cup semi-final, we can expect our first-choice back to come back into the starting XI.
Ben Davies (LB)
Davies has been an exceptional presence for us at left-back, with his lung-busting runs. He should retain his place in the XI.
Davinson Sanchez (CB)
Sanchez has been a solid force to reckon with for us and he is likely to reprise his role at the heart of the defence against Watford.
Jan Vertonghen (CB)
Vertonghen has been one of our most consistent performers throughout this season and he should partner Sanchez at the back.
Kieran Trippier (RB)
One might say that Serge Aurier has to play ahead of Trippier but we have a fight ahead, for a top-four finish and hence Trippier must start.
Eric Dier (DM)
Dier can effortlessly link the defence to the attack and he will be crucial for us in terms of establishing and maintaining control in the middle of the park.
Mousa Dembele (DM)
Dembele partners quite well with Dier and that should see him essay his usual role.
Heung-min Son (LW)
Son’s power and pace have been important for us this term and the feisty South Korean should find his name in the starting line-up.
Dele Alli (AM)
Alli has been at the receiving end of a lot of criticism lately but he is one of our most creative attackers and is a sure starter here.
Christian Eriksen (RW)
Eriksen has been a standout performer for us and he is expected to take up his usual role at right-wing.
Harry Kane (ST)
Kane needs to score some goals to ensure he keeps pace with Mohamed Salah in the race for the Golden Boot and this game will provide him with a good opportunity to do that.
[Video] Amazing new time-lapse footage showcases pitch and seating areas of Tottenham’s new stadium
Tottenham’s new stadium is towards completion and a new time-lapse video from last week has been shared which highlights the final stages of work being done.
The video begins with a view of the exterior where cranes are working on one section of the structure. The next part features an aerial view of the entire stadium. The video shows construction being done throughout the night to get the venue ready as quickly as possible.
A clip from the video showcases a section where numerous glass panes are yet to be installed, however, a number of cranes and workers are on the job.
The pitch was installed a week ago and an interior shot displays the grass and the artificial pitch lighting. It is great to see that most of the seats are installed and the LED hoardings across the seating area of the stadium.
Hopefully, the venue will be completed quickly. Tottenham have spent a lot of time away from home with Wembley being used as a temporary ground. We even played a Carabao Cup game against Watford at Stadium MK.
“Star on and off the pitch” – Some Tottenham fans react to Spurs star’s hilarious dance
Lucas Moura seems to be enjoying his season with Tottenham. The Brazilian had a fantastic performance against Manchester United a few weeks ago and was even recalled to the Brazil squad during the recent international break.
The former PSG man has become a starter for Spurs and a recent video was shared by Moussa Sissoko of the Brazilian dancing.

Spurs beat West Ham in a tough London derby on Saturday and will need another quality performance against PSV Eindhoven in midweek.
Tottenham have lost their two Champions League group games this season, and we need to defeat the Dutch team to have any chance of making it into the next round.
Tottenham downplay interest in signing 25-year-old Colombian star
Tottenham have no plans of signing Wilmar Barrios from Boca Junior, sources have told ESPN. The Colombian international had a decent World Cup with the national side and was linked with a move to Spurs, according to the report.
Reports (h/t ESPN) suggested that we had agreed on personal terms with the 25-year-old’s representatives and were preparing a bid for the midfielder.
Spurs were the only club to not sign a player in the summer but the manager was open to signings in January.
The manager was quoted by ESPN as saying:
“In football you always need to think you can improve, and you need to try to improve your squad.
“We couldn’t sign [in the summer] for different circumstances, but we wanted to sign.
“Now January will come and we’re going to try to sign. I think it’s not only us — all the clubs and managers want to sign players, must refresh the squad.
“We need to try again in January or the summer if we want to move on the team and the club.”
Spurs are in a great position in the Premier League as we are just a couple of points behind the league leaders.
Hopefully, the right signings can help us push on this season and lead us to our first ever Premier League title.
