Stadium: Tottenham Hotspur (London)
After two rounds played, Tottenham is one of the leaders. Harry Kane remains at the club after being persuaded by the team management. Will the England national football team captain score in the first game of the new EPL season?
Under Nuno Espírito Santo, Tottenham has had two narrow victories over Man City and Wolverhampton with the same score of 1-0. There seems to be an idea of the Spurs’ game under the Portuguese coach, pragmatic and reliable in defense. Especially with Kane back in action.
Watford started the season with a surprise 3-2 win over Aston Villa, although they led 3-0 throughout the match. In round 2, the Hornets were defeated by a disciplined Brighton led by Graham Potter (0-2). Watford progressed to the third round of the EFL Cup this week, beating Crystal Palace 1-0. However, the start of the season for Watford is as ambiguous as the position of head coach Xisco Muñoz as his main achievement is the championship of Georgia with FC Dinamo Tbilisi. Plus we should not forget the odious Pozzo brothers at the head of the club.
Injuries and suspensions
- Tottenham: Carter‑Vickers, Rodon, Ndombele.
- Watford: Pedro, Chalobah, Hughes, Kucka.
Tottenham and Watford have met 36 times. The Spurs are confidently leading in terms of wins, 22-7. In the season before last, both games ended in a draw - 1-1 in London and 0-0 in Watford.

Also, there’s an option of the Spurs’ win-to-nil, as the Hornets attack does not pose a serious threat to the home team. Marathonbet gives odds of 2.31 for it.
Watford has some rough players in the lineup, in addition to Troy Deeney, who can intentionally drive his spikes through the legs of an opponent.
