Match Preview: Watford Vs Spurs

Watford head coach Walter Mazzarri says he could be without up to nine first-team players for Saturday’s visit of Tottenham.

Valon Behrami, Daryl Janmaat, Adrian Mariappa, Roberto Pereyra, Isaac Success, Ben Watson and Miguel Britos are definitely out, while Stefano Okaka and Craig Cathcart are doubts.

Tottenham defenders Jan Vertonghen and Kyle Walker are both suspended.

Toby Alderweireld returns after a virus, but Eric Lamela remains out.


Watford head coach Walter Mazzarri on his side’s injury list: “The club knows already the situation.

“We will try to get some players in as soon as possible. January is very difficult, you need to think of not getting players for only a few months, but also about the future.

“The club knows what to do and we will try to do it as soon as possible.”

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino: “For us the most important game is Watford to try and reduce the gap on the top four.

“We need to be focused on Watford, that’s the most important thing for us.

“Chelsea are a long way ahead. It will be tough for all the contenders. They have a good gap to second and 10 points to us but we’ll fight to reduce the gap.”
