Michael Owen is tipping Tottenham and Watford to play out a high scoring game at Wembley on Sunday.

Spurs have made a positive start to the new Premier League season despite a difficult summer for Mauricio Pochettino in the transfer market.

Indeed, the Argentinian head coach didn’t sign any new players in the 2018 summer transfer window despite their third-placed finish last term.

Tottenham have a 100 per cent record in the Premier League so far this season after victories over Fulham and Newcastle United.

Spurs were impressive 3-0 winners against Manchester United at Old Trafford last weekend thanks to goals from Lucas Moura and Harry Kane.

Watford, meanwhile, have won their opening three Premier League fixtures against Brighton, Burnley and Crystal Palace.

Former Liverpool FC striker Owen is tipping plenty of goals at Wembley when Tottenham host Watford on Sunday afternoon.

“Spurs have won their first three games of the season in top-flight football for only the fifth time in their history – and first since 2009 – while Watford have won their opening three games of a top-flight season for the first time in their history,” Owen told BetVictor.

“The Hornets have only lost one of their nine home league games under Javi Gracia and this promises to be another terrific game played in a derby atmosphere. Spurs must back up their wonderful result at Old Trafford if they are to be realistic title challengers, but I like this new Watford and expect to see a number of chances at both ends.”

Tottenham finished in third place in the Premier League table last season behind champions Manchester City and runners up Manchester United.

Spurs haven’t won the Premier League title but have finished in the top four in the last four seasons since Pochettino’s appointment.

Tottenham will host Premier League leaders Liverpool FC in their fifth fixture of the new campaign next month.
