Mauricio Pochettino has picked his Tottenham Hotspur team which will take on Watford this afternoon.
After the international break, the focus returns to the Premier League with both sides desperate for a win following their respective disappointing starts to the new season.
As expected, with Hugo Lloris sidelined with a fractured elbow, Paulo Gazzaniga gets a start between the sticks.
Harry Kane takes over the captaincy after showing he is more than capable of being a leader following England’s well-publicised Euro 2020 qualifier against Bulgaria.
Tottenham have lost more games in all competitions in 2019 than any other Premier League side (17). The last calendar year in which they lost more games was 2008 (19).
Mauricio Pochettino and his players need to be wary of the fact that the Hornets are without a top flight win this season and the prospect of his side getting stung with a defeat will only increase the media spotlight upon himself and his players.
This is who features for Tottenham this afternoon.
Tottenham: Gazzaniga, Aurier, Alderweireld, Sanchez, Vertonghen, Rose, Winks, Sissoko, Dele, Lucas, Kane (C).
Subs: Austin, Foyth, Davies, Dier, Ndombele, Lamela, Son
