Hornets facing Wembley examination


Watford appear to have already set their sights on the summer holiday beaches, so facing Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley on Monday evening promises to be a tough assignment.

The Hornets are without a win in their last six Premier League games and have scored just three goals in that time, with Roberto Pereyra netting two of those.

Troy Deeney and Andre Gray have scored just nine league goals between them this season, leaving midfield powerhouse Abdoulaye Doucoure as the Hornets’ leading scorer with seven.

He is 15/2 to score at any time on Monday evening, while Watford are 29/20 to score one goal in the game, which will be some feat given their recent struggles.

Meanwhile, Spurs will be desperate to take all three points to maintain their drive for a top-four finish and, having put four past the Hornets in both of their meetings last season, they will be full of confidence, although they were held to a 1-1 draw at Vicarage Road earlier this season.

Tottenham could offer a major return if they put four on the board again on Monday, as they are 17/10 to score over 3.5 goals in the game, while you might want to consider 13/2 for a 3-0 home win of 37/4 for a 4-0 victory for the hosts.

Star striker Harry Kane is not the best option among the goalscoring markets, especially when considering that he has scored in only one of the four games he has played against the Hornets to date.

Instead, Heung-Min Son and Dele Alli have been the men to impress in recent meetings, with the Korean having scored three in his last two against the Hornets and Alli having three in three to his name.

Son is 4/5 to score at any time on Monday, which is probably a little short to tempt you in, so look to 7/2 to score the first goal of the game as a better option.

Meanwhile, England ace Alli is 13/10 to score at any time and 11/2 to net the first goal of the game.

The yellow card market might also be one to keep a close eye on, with Doucoure 11/5 to pick up a yellow card, having already been booked ten times in the Premier League this season.
