Former Manchester United and Liverpool forward Michael Owen has revealed his prediction for the Premier League match between Watford and Tottenham Hotspur.

Jose Mourinho’s side travel to Vicarage Road tomorrow lunchtime on the back of two successive top flight defeats at the hands of Southampton and Liverpool.

They face a rejuvenated Hornets side who under the recently appointed Nigel Pearson are unbeaten in their last five matches in the league.

With Chelsea travelling to Newcastle, Spurs could find themselves twelve points behind their London rivals if results go against them.

Spurs will have to keep a close eye on Troy Deeney, the talismanic captain as scored four goals in his last five Premier League games – as many as he’d netted in his previous 20 appearances in the competition.

Owen believes that it will be another frustrating afternoon for Jose Mourinho’s side and has tipped them to become the latest victims of the Hornets.

He told BetVictor: “Watford have picked up thirteen points out of a possible 15 – including winning their last three – and they have been a revelation since Nigel Pearson took over at Vicarage Road.

“The Hornets won the corresponding game 2-1 last season and got a point at Spurs in the reverse fixture earlier in the season. I see no reason why the hosts can’t continue their excellent recent run against a Spurs side who may have been flattered to run Liverpool so close at the weekend.

“Tip: Watford to win.”
