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.
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.
Davies has been an exceptional presence for us at left-back, with his lung-busting runs. He should retain his place in the XI.
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.
Vertonghen has been one of our most consistent performers throughout this season and he should partner Sanchez at the back.
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.
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.
Dembele partners quite well with Dier and that should see him essay his usual role.
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.
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.
Eriksen has been a standout performer for us and he is expected to take up his usual role at right-wing.
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.
