Watford are winless in their last 13 meetings with Tottenham in all competitions (D3 L10) since a 3-2 win at White Hart Lane in a League Cup tie in October 1994.

Tottenham are unbeaten in 12 league meetings with Watford (W8 D4) since a 0-1 loss at Vicarage Road in May 1987.

Watford are looking to win their first four league matches of a season for only the second time in their entire history, also doing so in the 1988-89 campaign when they were in the second tier.

Spurs have won more Premier League points than any other side in 2018 (49), winning 15 and drawing four of their 21 matches.

Watford’s Roberto Pereyra has had a hand in nine goals in his last nine Premier League appearances at Vicarage Road (7 goals, 2 assists). 

Lucas Moura has been involved in eight goals in his eight starts for Tottenham Hotspur in all competitions (4 goals, 4 assists). 

Since Javier Gracia’s first home Premier League match in charge of Watford, only Liverpool (7) have won more home games than the Hornets (6). 

Spurs striker Harry Kane has scored 19 goals in his last 16 Premier League starts in games played on Sunday. 

Spurs could win their first three away Premier League matches for the second consecutive season, having also done so in 2017-18 – they didn’t achieve this feat in any of their first 25 Premier League seasons.
