Though the season’s winding down, Spurs still have to keep their foot to the floor because Chelsea are in really good form now. It’s a pity for them they had that blip a month ago when they couldn’t win a game because they’ve now won four-in-a-row and are only two points behind Tottenham.
Spurs do have a game in hand on them, but if Tottenham don’t take care of Watford, Chelsea are within striking distance of fourth.
It’s very important that Pochettino finds a way to pick his up after their disappointment in the semi-final against United where, yet again, they couldn’t cope with a big pressure game.
There are still very big questions for Pochettino and Spurs to answer after last week, but Watford are pretty poor at the moment, and I don’t think they’ll have much to offer here.
At this time of the season you’ll often see teams that look like they’re already on the beach. Well, I get the impression Watford players are already on the beach the way they’ve been playing recently.
A lot of them are looking to next season already.
They’re not getting relegated on 38 points – they’ll probabaly pick up one or two more before the end of the season which will guarantee it – but I can only see a Tottenham win this if they’re up for it. This should be a comfortable win.
I could easily see it finishing 3 or 4 nil. Don’t forget that Harry Kane is still chasing Mo Salah, he wants to catch him as he’s a few behind, and Salah’s given him a chance this week by not scoring against Stoke.
Remember as well that Harry Kane finished the league last season with two hat-tricks in his final two games, so don’t be surprised if Kane gets one or two in this game.
I see a big Tottenham win with at least a Harry Kane double in it. Harry Kane to score first and Tottenham to win 4-0 is 12/1 in the Scorecast at the moment.
