Opponent Watch: A deep dive into the Watford squad ahead of the clash against Tottenham

Latest Watford injury news ahead of the Premier League clash against Tottenham Hotspur

According to HertsLive, the latest injury news regarding Watford have been released ahead of the match against Tottenham Hotspur in Premier League. The game is set to take place tomorrow as both teams try to get all three points to help in their respective cases.

The Hornets have quite a long list of absentees as they try to keep themselves out of the relegation zone. They have a challenging task at hand since they face a resurgent Tottenham team who have had a different look since Antonio Conte has taken the managerial role.

Tom Cleverley and Adam Masina are available for selection and would be in line to be involved against Spurs. Kwadwo Baah, Peter Etebo, Nicolas Nkoulou and Ismaila Sarr are long term absentees, so they would not be in contention to make the matchday squad. Ben Foster has begun training, whereas Christian Kabasele will soon follow him, but the duo will not make it tomorrow.

Kiko Femenia picked up a hamstring injury last game, while Danny Rose has a knee issue of his own to deal with currently. Jeremy Ngakia is likely among the players who are in isolation as he had missed the last game against West Ham United as there was no declared setback.

Advantage Spurs?

We would gladly accept all the help we can get as we try to push towards the top four places. However, we should be winning the fixture regardless of the injury situation of the hosts. They have been poor and are in contention to face the drop at the end of the campaign.

Claudio Ranieri’s side have lost their last five matches in the league, which indicates how bad they have been. As such, anything below the three points would be a disappointment and, we have to use this as an opportunity to boost our chances of getting into the Champions League places.

That does not mean that we should take them for granted, which would be the last thing we need. While Southampton are pretty good, we should have got the better of them when they got down to ten men in the first half itself.

We should use the disappointing result of last time as a means to motivate ourselves to do better this time around. Who knows, some of our fringe players might get the chance to prove their worth against a relatively “lesser” opposition. A win tomorrow would also give us ample momentum to face Chelsea in the Carabao Cup first leg semifinal.
