Tottenham have the chance to pile the pressure on Premier League leaders Chelsea by beating Watford in the early kick-off on Saturday (12.30pm kick-off).
Mauricio Pochettino’s men left it very late to overcome Swansea 3-1 at the Liberty Stadium on Wednesday night to record a fifth straight league win, and keep them within seven points of Antonio Conte’s Blues after they got the better of Manchester City on the same night.

Yet, it won’t be easy for Pochettino’s side against a Watford team that have won their last two league games, and currently sit tenth in the division.
Mazzarri’s men have won ten of their 30 Premier League matches this season to sit nine points clear of the bottom three, and know that victory on Saturday would take them to that coveted 40-point mark.
