Eveing Standard team news ahead of Watford clash as one star makes early return

Tottenham Hotspur will be looking to recover from back to back domestic defeats as they take on Watford on Wednesday this week.

Spurs were defeated on penalties in their League Cup semi-final against Chelsea last week, before being knocked out of the FA Cup four days later by Crystal Palace.

The Lilywhites’ last Premier League outing was also far from stellar, as they scraped a 2-1 win against Fulham with a 93rd minute winner from Harry Winks.

Pochettino’s squad has been hit hard with injuries this season, and the team has been struggling without goal threats Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Heung Min Son, Lucas Moura, and Christian Eriksen as times over the past few games.

However, Sonny is set to make an early Spurs return after South Korea suffered a shock defeat against Qatar in the Asia Cup.

Christian Eriksen should also be back after his rest on Sunday, with Moussa Sissoko a possibility after his minor injury.

Kane and Alli remain out until early March, while Ben Davies is a major doubt too (Standard).
