Charlie Nicholas is back with his latest round of Premier League predictions, including Watford vs Man Utd and Tottenham vs Chelsea.
I think Watford are already gone. Six points is the gap and we are only two games away from the halfway stage in terms of Premier League campaign.
Man Utd have picked up, there is no doubt about that, but there is a vulnerability there. It has improved, and because of that Man Utd will get through it, but it will not be plain sailing here.
CHARLIE PREDICTS: 1-2 (15/2 with Sky Bet)
It is another cracker. The match is the 'Special One' against the intriguing one, or the potential one.
Frank Lampard has done a great job thus far but Chelsea have been up and down as we expected. Inconsistency is a thing, but this will be the case with whatever he is trying to achieve until they establish themselves a bit more.
This will take a while, perhaps a season-and-a-half with these players.
Jose Mourinho is ruthless and that is the agenda for Tottenham right now. They are still in the Champions League but they are just wanting to win games in general - this was the reason Mourinho was brought in.
If they try to force the game, Chelsea could pick them off and Lampard will be curious as to test Tottenham's defence. With Willian, Tammy Abraham and Mason Mount you have lots of energy and lots of ways to exploit out wide, but I cannot separate them.
