Liverpool defeated Manchester City yesterday and that has provided Tottenham and Arsenal the chance to over take the Citizens.
Spurs are currently three points behind the Sky Blues with a superior goal difference. Therefore, a win against Watford will take them above Pep Guardiola’s men.
Moreover, Pochettino will be hoping for an Arsenal slip up against Crystal Palace.
As far as Tottenham’s team news is concerned, first choice defenders Kyle Walker and Jan Vertonghen are suspended for today’s game against the Hornets.
In such a scenario, Trippier has replaced the England international and he will be starting in the right back position. Toby Alderweireld has returned much to the delight of the Tottenham fans and the Belgian international will partner Kevin Wimmer in the central defense.
Dier and Wanyama will start in the center of the park for the North Londoners. The likes of Eriksen, Son and Alli start in the attacking midfield behind Harry Kane who is making his 100th PL appearance.
Here is Spurs’ confirmed starting XI formation vs Watford.
