Predicted XI to face Watford in the League

Tottenham Hotspur take on Watford in the Premier League this evening, as Spurs look to put back-to-back defeats firmly behind them.

The Lilywhites were dumped out of both the League Cup by Chelsea, and the FA Cup by Crystal Palace last week.

Spurs also struggled last time out in the Prem, needing a last minute winner from Harry Winks to save all three points.

Tottenham have been struggling without Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Lucas Moura, and Heung Min Son of late, with few other attacking options.

However, Moura returned to action last week, and Son is now in contention again after an early South Korea exit from the Asia Cup.

We believe Hugo Lloris will regain his starting spot between the sticks, with Alderweireld re-joining fellow Belgian Jan Vertonghen in the centre of defence.

Danny Rose and Serge Aurier replace Kyle Walker-Peters and Kieran Trippier in the full back positions, with Winks coming back into centre mid with Eric Dier.

Son makes his first start since returning from international duty, as he, Christian Eriksen, and Lucas Moura line up behind Fernando Llorente.

Have something to tell us about this article?

  1. The “casualties” are mounting along with an increasing number of avoidable niggles. Apart from the obvious injuries to Kane and Alli and Sissoko, Son is still tired from his Asia jaunt, Moura is set in perpetual recovery mode, Eriksen might be left out again on Poch’s whim, and no reason to think Poch will switch from Trippier to Aurier now (after the damage is already done) or that he will stop punishing Alderweireld for whatever he did wrong. Apart from that we got a great squad.
