WAT vs TOT Dream11: Watford can move further clear of the relegation zone when they play host to Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League at Vicarage Road on Saturday evening (IST). The Hornets are having a stunning transformation under Nigel Pearson, unbeaten in the last five, and winning three times in those games. Watford have doubled up their points tally in those five matches, but more importantly, they are outside the relegation zone for the first time since August.
Tottenham Hotspur are also under the new manager but the early signs of improvement and the momentum are apparently gone, fir Spurs have won just once in the last four league games, with the gap to Champions League increasing to nine points following Chelsea's two wins in last three matches.
Without a shadow of any doubt that this is a very important game as both, the teams look to take one more step towards their respective targets.
