Tottenham vs Watford (EPL 2021/22)
Despite the backdrop of Harry Kane’s transfer saga threatening to derails Tottenham’s season before it even began, things are started to look up for the Londoners.
Nuno Espirito Santo has made a perfect start to his tenure in the Premier League, Kane is now staying put, and they’re through to the Europa Conference League.

So, with speculation now put to bed, Espirito Santo can focus on getting Spurs back into the Champions League, and that will mean collecting points in these so-called ‘winnable’ fixtures. The hard work of putting champions City to the sword will be for nothing if they fail to turn up against a newly-promoted side.
Watford have looked threatening in these opening weeks, thrashing Aston Villa 3-2 having initially led Dean Smith’s side 3-0, and eliminating Crystal Palace from the EFL Cup. The only blot on Xisco’s 2021/22 CV so far has been that 2-0 loss to Brighton, and he will want to issue a firm statement of the Hornets’ intents for the season here against Spurs.
Opening wins over Manchester City and Wolves have set the tempo for Spurs, while they overcame a one-goal deficit to Pacos de Ferreira in the play-offs for the inaugural Europa Conference League to reach the groups, with Kane embellishing the statement that he’s staying by netting a brace in a 3-1 second-leg win.
