Spurs on a roll 

Mauricio Pochettino's side received a lot of criticism leading up to their opening game against Newcastle United after bringing in no new signings.

However, Pochettino's men have made it three wins from their first three games.

The latest victory coming at Old Trafford where Spurs beat Manchester United 3-0 on a memorable night for the Spurs faithful.

Spurs have had a poor record under Pochettino away to the other 'top six' sides but in their last three games against them, they have taken seven points. 

Bogey team

Watford have failed to beat Spurs in a league match since a 1-0 victory in 1987. 

In the previous seven meetings between the two sides in the Premier League, the Hornets have only managed to earn a point. 

Spurs have enjoyed the meetings against Watford but they were held to a draw in their last trip to Vicarage Road. 

However, this time around both sides enter the game on maximum points and will be hoping to end the game with their 100% win record in tac.
