Harry Redknapp states his prediction for Tottenham v Watford
Harry Redknapp discusses Tottenham's struggles ahead of their home clash with Watford on Saturday
Harry Redknapp is backing Tottenham Hotspur to steady the ship with a home victory against Watford in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.
Spurs head into the game after having slumped to a 3-0 loss to Brighton and Hove Albion last time out to leave them in ninth place in the Premier League table.
Tottenham have only won two of their last five games in the Premier League and Mauricio Pochettino’s men currently sit 13 points behind leaders Liverpool FC.
The north Londoners will be keen to put things right and start building some momentum with a victory against Watford in front of their home fans on Saturday.
And former Spurs boss Redknapp is backing Tottenham to claim all three points when they host the Hornets this weekend.
Writing in his column for BetVictor, Redknapp said: “Tottenham fans will be slightly worried at their side’s slide in form and will hope the break has seen them regroup ready to mount a top-four bid again.
“There is no covering up a disappointing 3-0 loss at Brighton but home form has been stronger with just one defeat.
“Visitors Watford arrive as the bottom club and still yet to register a victory in the top flight this season.
“The Hornets have only netted four times so it’s easy to see where their problems lie, with the loss of captain and talisman Troy Deeney being crucial, Watford have desperately missed his goal output.
“The club may well be targeting softer home fixtures to start turning the corner as it’s hard to envisage a trip to the Tottenham Stadium reaping any dividends.”
Spurs are in Champions League action next week when they take on Red Star Belgrade at home on Tuesday night.
They will then switch their attentions back to Premier League affairs and their crunch clash against Liverpool FC at Anfield on Sunday 27 October.
