BBC Sport pundit Lawrenson feels that Spurs will come through the Watford test as they are playing well.
“Even before Tottenham put four goals past Southampton I looked at Spurs and thought they have just got something about them at the moment,” Lawrenson wrote in his BBC Sport column. “Watford, in contrast, looked ordinary in their draw with Crystal Palace. I don’t see them stopping Tottenham from making it four wins in a row.”
Lawrenson has tipped Spurs to win 2-0 in the league clash.
Spurs face league leaders Chelsea on 4 January and will be keen to get in that game on the back of a victory.
The Blues have won 12 consecutive league games and have emerged as the title favourites, but have only found great success since switching to a new formation.
Pochettino’s side lost the reverse fixture 2-1 against Chelsea in November, but are certainly in better form now.
