A midweek win for Tottenham at Norwich City has put the fans into a state of disbelief, could Tottenham Hotspur really be in the running for the league title? Yes is the answer but they simply must put together wins against teams like Watford and that is meant as no disrespect to Watford. This team that Pochettino has put together has the talent to go all the way but talent alone will not win a league and consistancy and perserverence. White Hart Lane will be buzzing on Saturday and Harry Kane and co will look to get three more points in their quest for the top four a possibly a shot at the league title. Kane, Erikson, Dembele and Alli are all having extraordinary years and this is being underpinned by Manuel Pochettino's success in turning Tottenham into a team that believes in itself and their talents. Tottenham have only lost three times this year and if they can get another win here then there is a chance that Saturday evening they are just three points off top.
Watford have been excellent this season and another solid display on Wednesday night where they held a rejuvenated Chelsea to a 0-0 draw is proof of the improvement in this side. Watford sit in the top half of the league table an unbelievable achievement for Sanchez Flores and his side. Backboned by Ighalo , Deeney, Watson and ex spurs midfielder Capoue, this is a side that are tough to beat and they will go to White Hart Lane confident of being able to get something from this game. Watford have struggled a little on their travels of late though with losses to Swansea and Southampton.
This one is tough to call. I'm going to take both teams to score as I see Watford as a viable threat going forward but I think Tottenham can come away with a win here that underlines the fact that this year's Premier League title race is a four way race right now!
