Ian Wright has predicted in The Sun that Tottenham Hotspur will win against Watford this weekend.

The Arsenal legend believes that Spurs will pick up maximum points from their Premier League encounter against Watford away from home at Vicarage Road on Saturday afternoon

Wright has also suggested that Mauricio Pochettino’s side are still very much in the race for the Premier League title despite their recent defeat to Leicester City.

Tottenham are as low as seventh in the league table at the moment with 24 points from 14 matches, as many as four points behind fourth-placed and North London rivals Arsenal and 16 points behind leaders Manchester City.

Wright has also stated that Watford’s main threat will be 20-year-old forward Richarlison.

Richarlison has scored five goals and provided three assists in 13 Premier League starts for Watford so far this season.

The Brazilian joined the Hornets from Fluminense in the summer transfer window for a fee reported by The Guardian to be worth £11.5 million.

“I’m not buying it that Spurs are completely out of the title race,” Wright wrote in The Sun. “Leicester only had a couple chances against them but managed to score two world class goals.

“Spurs, meanwhile, missed three sitters. If I looked at the video of that game on a Monday morning I’d see that we had enough chances to win the game.

“So there’s no cause for alarm they just need to keep going as they are and see what happens in front of them.

“On paper Spurs win this game easily but if Watford are to have a chance Richarlison will be the main threat.”

Wright added: “I think the main man Harry Kane will net first at 5/2 and I think 2-1 Spurs is the score to back at 6/1. I’d have a small bet on 3-2 as a backup at 18/1 to as this will be a close one.”
