Despite the backdrop of Harry Kane’s transfer saga threatening to derails Tottenham’s season before it even began, things are started to look up for the Londoners. Nuno Espirito Santo has made a perfect start to his tenure in the Premier League, Kane is now staying put, and they’re through to the Europa Conference League.
Opening wins over Manchester City and Wolves have set the tempo for Spurs, while they overcame a one-goal deficit to Pacos de Ferreira in the play-offs for the inaugural Europa Conference League to reach the groups, with Kane embellishing the statement that he’s staying by netting a brace in a 3-1 second-leg win.
So, with speculation now put to bed, Espirito Santo can focus on getting Spurs back into the Champions League, and that will mean collecting points in these so-called ‘winnable’ fixtures. The hard work of putting champions City to the sword will be for nothing if they fail to turn up against a newly-promoted side.
Watford have looked threatening in these opening weeks, thrashing Aston Villa 3-2 having initially led Dean Smith’s side 3-0, and eliminating Crystal Palace from the EFL Cup. The only blot on Xisco’s 2021/22 CV so far has been that 2-0 loss to Brighton, and he will want to issue a firm statement of the Hornets’ intents for the season here against Spurs.

In the absence of Kane, Son has been the attacking fulcrum for Spurs, netting the winning (and only) goal in the unexpected 1-0 triumph over City, while he also enters this particular contest having scored five goals in nine league appearances against Watford — only against Southampton (9) has he scored more.
Of course, Kane will be itching to open his Premier League account for the campaign having missed a golden opportunity in the win over Wolves. His timely midweek brace against Pacos will have refuelled his desire to score and the Golden Boot holder will see this contest as a game in which he should find the target.
