Tottenham Hotspur will be looking to get back to winning ways when Quique Sanchez Flores’ Watford side visit North London on Saturday. Having suffered an absolute demolition at the hands of Bayern Munich in midweek, Spurs went on to lose their league game against Brighton that weekend as well. Neither displays showed any signs of positivity from the Tottenham camp and Mauricio Pochettino would be keen to change that in the coming days.
The Hornets certainly have problems of their own to deal with as they’re the only side yet to win a game this term. With just three points on the board and sitting rock-bottom, Watford are sure to have their tails up when they visit a stumbling Spurs team on the weekend.
Team News: Giovani Lo Celso’s hip injury has ruled him out of contention until the start of November at the very minimum. Serge Aurier has served the suspension he received in the game against Southampton and is expected to make a timely return. Hugo Lloris’ nasty-looking fall resulted in him being ruled out at least until the turn of the year. This means that Paulo Gazzaniga is expected to take over in goal for Tottenham
Serge Aurier’s presence ahead of Moussa Sissoko on the flank will add an added layer of defensive stability to the Spurs side. Although Danny Rose is available for selection as well, we expect Ben Davies to keep his place on the left side. Ryan Sessegnon, the youngster, signed from Fulham at the end of last season, remains sidelined with a hamstring problem.
Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld both seem to be completely match-fit at this time meaning that Davinson Sanchez could miss out again this week. The Belgian duo has tons of experience playing together, and their partnership will prove to be vital throughout the campaign.
Tanguy Ndombele and Harry Winks are gradually developing into one of the most productive midfield engines in the league. The Frenchman’s strength and physical presence in the middle of the park helps the Tottenham defence maintain their shape at all times. Add that to Winks’ passing ability and tactical competence, and this duo could blossom into something special indeed.
Erik Lamela and Heung Min-Son are both expected to retain their places on either flank. The speedy duo will have to be at their best if they are to get a positive result this week. Christian Eriksen’s place in the side has never really been under scrutiny, meaning that he will operate out on the number ten slot. The Dane’s creativity in the final third and combination play with his striker will both prove to be extremely vital to Spurs this Saturday as well.
Moussa Sissoko will have to make his impact off the bench this week while Eric Dier is expected to drop out of the side as well. Dele Alli is another set to miss out on starting this week having been benched in their last league fixture as well.
Harry Kane has had an international break to remember as he put up what was a memorable display in England’s 6-0 thrashing of Bulgaria earlier this week. Although he scored just one on the night, it was his unselfishness in the final third that caught the eye. With the talismanic forward in this kind of blistering form, he tends to be the first name on the team sheet. Quique Sanchez Flores and his defensive unit will certainly be having nightmares about Kane in the days ahead.
