Predicted Tottenham line-up to play Watford: One change from Pochettino

Here is how we predict Tottenham Hotspur and Watford will line up this weekend:

To be played on Saturday 6th February 2016 at 15:00. Venue: White Hart Lane, London

Odds: Tottenham 1/2, Draw 3/1, Watford 13/2

Tottenham Hotspur welcome Watford to White Hart Lane on Saturday with both sides impressing in the Premier Leaguer this season.

Spurs are currently third in the table, five points clear of nearest challengers Manchester United, while Watford are ninth with 33 points from 23 games.

The Hornets impressed with their January transfer business and some of their recent additions are likely to feature this weekend, although more likely from the bench.

Tottenham did not sign anyone but that is more an indication of the strength in depth at the club these days than a failure to invest.

In early team news, Tottenham are without Clinton N’Jie and Jan Vertonghen while Dele Alli is rated at 75 per cent to recover from illness.

As for Watford, they cannot call on Rene Gilmartin, Joel Ekstrand or Tommy Hoban while Miguel Britos is a minor doubt due to illness.

With all that in mind here is how we expect the two sides to line up this weekend:
