Watford and Tottenham Hotspur will face each other in the Premier League this weekend.

Former Liverpool and Manchester United striker Michael Owen has predicted on Betvictor.com that Tottenham Hotspur will win against Watford this weekend.

Tottenham will face Watford away from home at Vicarage Road in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.

“The Hornets have never beaten Spurs in the PL and I can’t see past an away win for Mauricio Pochettino’s side at Vicarage Road in the opening game of 2017,” Owen wrote on betvictor.com.

A footnote added: “Michael’s recommendation: Spurs to win at 7/10.”
