Stat Attack: Tottenham Hotspur vs Watford

Tottenham are unbeaten in their last seven home games against Watford in all competitions (W6 D1) since a 2-3 loss in a League Cup match in October 1994.

Watford are looking to do the league double over Tottenham for the very first time.

After winning their first three away league games against Spurs by an aggregate score of 9-3, Watford have lost each of their last eight such visits, scoring three and conceding 22.

Watford could become the first side to do the league double over a ‘big six’ side from outside of those clubs since the 2015-16 campaign (West Ham vs Liverpool and Newcastle vs Tottenham).

Spurs have won their last 10 Premier League games on a Wednesday by an aggregate score of 26-3. Meanwhile, Watford have played more Premier League games on Wednesday without ever winning than any other side in the competition (P13 W0 D4 L9).

Tottenham haven’t drawn any of their last 27 Premier League games (W20 L7). Victory or defeat here would equal the record set by Bolton between March-December 2011 of 28 games without a draw in the competition.

Tottenham have lost their last two home league games, last losing three in a row in September 2008. They last lost three in a row at home within the same season in February 2007.

Watford are unbeaten in four Premier League away games (W2 D2), scoring at least twice each time. The Hornets have won their last two Premier League games in London (vs West Ham and Crystal Palace) – they’ve never won three consecutive top-flight games in the capital.
