Tottenham Hotspur will be looking to consolidate their place in the Premier League’s top four when Watford visit Wembley on Sunday.
Two points clear of fifth-placed Chelsea with a game in hand, Mauricio Pochettino’s men are also just four adrift of third-placed Liverpool – who have played two extra games.
Having won nine and lost none of their last 12 games against this opposition, they are 1/6 (1.17) favourites with bet365 to bolster their bid for Champions League qualification by coming out on top in this one.

These sides shared a 1-1 draw at Vicarage Road when they met in December’s reverse encounter, and you can get odds of 15/2 (8.50) on them cancelling each other out yet again.
Harry Winks is still unavailable due to an ankle injury, although Danny Rose could be back in contention after a calf problem.
Nathaniel Chalobah, Tom Cleverley, Gerard Deulofeu and Younes Kaboul are all ruled out for Javi Gracia’s team, while Sebastian Prodl, Andre Carrillo, Troy Deeney and Roberto Pereyra all face late fitness tests.
Easy Spurs win
After defeats against both Manchester clubs and a draw with Brighton, Spurs have now gone three games without a win for the first time since a run that was capped by December’s 1-1 draw at Vicarage Road.
However, it is hard to see them extending that winless streak against a Hornets team whose away record is so uninspiring, and who they had previously beaten in seven consecutive matches.
Indeed, having won four of their last five home league matches without conceding a goal, odds of 8/11 (1.73) offer decent value on Tottenham winning to nil against a Watford side that has failed to score in seven consecutive away games – losing six.
