Premier League

Monday evening’s Premier League action comes from Wembley where Tottenham Hotspur take on Watford.

The hosts have taken just one point from their past two league games and go into this fixture on the back of a 2-1 FA Cup semi-final defeat to Manchester United.

They are two points ahead of Chelsea following the rest of the weekend’s results and can reopen a five point gap between themselves and last season’s champions should they return to winning ways here.

Danny Rose is set to return after missing the last three games with a calf injury though Harry Winks remains sidelined with a long-term ankle problem.

Top scorer Harry Kane is unsurprisingly favourite to open the scoring at 3.0 (2/1) with some firms, with Son Heung-Min a 5.0 (4/1) chance with Betfred.

The home win is widely available at (1/6) with the visitors as highly priced as the 21.0 (20/1) on offer from Betfair, who have the draw at 9.0 (8/1).

Javi Gracia’s side are without a win in their last six league games, taking just two points in that time.

A return to winning ways here would see them move level on points with tenth place Newcastle and nine ahead of the relegation zone, all but confirming their top flight season for another campaign at least.

Gerard Deulofeu is available after recovering from a throat infection though Robert Pereyra, Younes Kaboul, Tom Cleverley and Stefano Okaka remain sidelined an the game comes to soon to Nathaniel Chalobah though he is closing in on a return to the first team.

Captain Troy Deeney is priced at 17.0 (16/1) to open the scoring with Unibet, with Andre Gray an 18.0 (17/1) chance with the same firm.

The two sides played out a 1-1 draw at Vicarage Road back in December, Son canceling out Christian Kabasele’s opener while last season’s corresponding fixture ended in a resounding win for the North Londoners – Son again on song with a brace in a 4-0 triumph.

Betfair offer a price of 2.2 (6/5) for there to be over 3.5 goals in the game this time around.
