The Hertfordshire outfit have not had luck on a Monday night in more than two decades and this tie might be another struggle for them

Monday night football in the Premier League sees Tottenham Hotspur take on Watford at Wembley.

The Lilywhites hopes of claiming silverware for the first time since 2008 ended last weekend after going down 2-1 to Manchester United in the FA Cup semi-finals.

Finishing in the top four is the priority for Mauricio Pochettino’s squad as Chelsea are just two points behind them in fifth. Victory at (1.16) with NairaBet would extend the cushion.

The Hornets could not make home advantage count as they played a goalless stalemate with Crystal Palace last time out, something not many saw coming.

Things are not safe for Javi Garcia’s men just yet as they are six points away from the relegation zone. Should they get a shock win in London at the price of (18.50), they’ll certainly be all but safe.

A stalemate is available at (8.25) with the same firm.

Tottenham are unbeaten in their last 12 matches against Watford in all competitions (nine wins, three draws) and are (1.75) to win to nil in the British capital.

The Hornets have lost their last seven away league matches against Spurs. This gives the men in white confidence to win either half at the price of (1.08).

Pochettino’s charges have scored in their last 22 Premier League games which is very impressive. Considering that they are playing on their turf, they are the favoured side at (1.18) to score first at Wembley while offered at (1.60) to score in both halves.

Watford have lost their last seven top-flight matches in London and haven’t won a league game on a Monday night since May 1986. This makes it almost certain that they’ll concede which NairaBet quotes at (1.04).
