Confirmed Tottenham line-up for tonight’s EFL Cup clash: A big call by Pochettino

Confirmed Tottenham line-up to face Watford: A big call by Pochettino

Tottenham Hotspur returned to winning ways against Brighton last weekend and Mauricio Pochettino’s men now turn their attention to the midweek League Cup clash against Watford.

Tottenham have had a topsy-turvy start to the new campaign, with beating Manchester United at Old Trafford being their biggest achievement and the loss at Watford being their biggest setback in the Premier League this season so far.

Pochettino has a very potent attack at his disposal and that might be the key to unlocking a well-drilled Watford defence. But having already been undone by the Hornets this season, Pochettino will be wary of the opposition’s threat and his boys have to be clinical this time around.

To disrupt Javi Gracia’s superbly organised side, Pochettino needs to come up with a game plan. Spurs have scored 12 goals in six games as compared to Watford’s 11, so the cup game between the two sides promises a lot of goals.

Tottenham will be raring to avenge their Premier League defeat against Watford by dumping them out of the EFL Cup competition tonight. Watford, on the other hand, will know that Spurs’ defence is and could press with high energy from the first blow of the whistle.
