Tottenham vs Watford prediction
Spurs gave more of their first-team regulars a run out in Europe and showed far more cohesion because of it. The return of Kane is a huge boost, of course, and the hosts should have enough to beat the Hornets.
A third win on the bounce, heading into the international window, would be a dream start for Nuno Espirito Santo.
