- Tottenham have won each of their last nine top-flight home games against Watford, including all six in the Premier League. Their record of six wins from six home games is their best such 100% home winning record in the Premier League.
- Watford have won just one of their 12 Premier League meetings with Spurs (D3 L8), with that win coming at Vicarage Road in September 2018.
- Since beating Arsenal 2-1 in January 2017, Watford have lost 16 consecutive Premier League away games against 'big six' opponents, scoring just nine goals and conceding 53 in return.
- Tottenham have lost five of their last 33 Premier League meetings with sides starting the day bottom of the table (W23 D5 L5) - all five of those defeats have been against teams beginning with 'W' (West Ham, Wigan and West Brom x3).
It is a big Super 6 this one. Jeff Stelling will be amazed if he has to splash out another £250,000 this weekend - it is so unpredictable.
Watford will be working away with Quique Sanchez Flores, despite some poor results since coming back to the club, with Tottenham coming back at sixes and sevens after the international break. They are all over the place.
Christian Eriksen remains unhappy, Dele Alli did not receive an England call-up, with their unpredictable defence topping it off. More woes for Tottenham.
