Tottenham have a good recent record against Watford with eight victories and two draws coming from their last two meetings in all competitions.
Additionally, Spurs will be looking to keep the pace with top of the league Chelsea, who are currently seven points clear in first.
Watford on the other hand are settled in 10th place with no dangers of dropping into a relegation battle or making it into a European place.
