Following our fantastic 5-0 League Cup win over Milton Keynes Dons midweek, we now take the short trip to Watford. There’s only a six point gap between us and them, but in terms of quality, there’s a huge gap. They have some capable players though, Ashley Young being the main one catching the eye of late with his goals. Still though, we should be capable of getting a win at Vicarage Road.
Sadly Didier Zokora is still missing due to illness, however, as I’ve mentioned before, Tom Huddlestone is doing a fine job standing in. Lee Young-Pyo is also out with an ankle injury, although I can’t see him forcing Benoit Assou-Ekotto or Pascal Chimbonda out of the team at the moment anyway. Paul Stalteri is doubtful too, but it doesn’t appear that he’s a first-team regular anymore.
The interesting but good headache Martin Jol will have is who to play upfront. The fact is Jermain Defoe and Mido have scored five in their last two games together, therefore I’d be tempted to stick with them against Watford. Of course, Dimitar Berbatov and Robbie Keane won’t be happy, but if you’re in form you play!
So come on Spurs, let’s get another win tomorrow!
