Tottenham Hotspur predicted the line-up against Watford

7

Tottenham Hotspur travel to Watford’s Vicarage Road for their first Premier League outing in 2022.

Antonio Conte has yet to taste a top defeat since replacing Nuno Espirito Santo at the helm of Spurs. But his individual record against Watford is surprisingly flawed.

In addition to losing 4-1 to Chelsea on his most recent visit to the Hertfordshire pitch (the coach’s joint heaviest defeat in England’s first tier), Conte has conceded more Premier League goals against the Hornets (ten) than any other team.

Here is XI Tottenham’s manager can put in to correct that record.

Hugo Lloris (GK) – During eight top matches against Watford, Tottenham’s long-term number one has never suffered a loss (W7 D1).

Davinson Sanchez (CB) – In the nine Premier League games Sanchez has started this season, Spurs have conceded just six goals. Still, Tottenham have sent an average of 1.8 per game otherwise.

Eric Dier (CB) – No player has taken the ball further towards the opponent’s goal (accumulatively) for Spurs than their deep-lying midfield this semester.

Ben Davies (CB) – Tottenham’s Wales international has more goals for his country (one) than he has managed in his last four seasons of Premier League football.

Emerson (RWB) – The former Real Betis defender ended a series of more than 2,100 top minutes in football without a direct goal contribution with an assist in Tottenham’s last home game.

Oliver Skipp (CM) – While on loan at Norwich City last season, Skipp lost at home and away to Watford with the same 1-0 result that Tottenham noted in their favor against the Hornets in August.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg (CM) – The Danish national team player has gone more undefeated matches against Watford (seven) than any other club in his career.

Sergio Reguilon (LWB) – Although he was stuck halfway through Tottenham’s frustrating draw away to Southampton in the middle of the week, Matt Doherty’s painful predictability on his unnatural side could give Reguilon a respite this weekend.

Lucas Moura (RW) – With four goals and as many assists already under Conte, Lucas cuts a direct goal contribution every 77 minutes – compared to one every 458 minutes under Nuno Espirito Santo.

Harry Kane (ST) – When Conte admitted that it was “a little difficult” to release Kane in early December, Tottenham’s striker had only scored one Premier League goal all season – now on a three-match points series it is almost impossible to omit the England captain.

Son Heung-min (LW) – Tottenham’s top scorer this season stood for the winning goal in his first and most recent appearances against Watford.
