Spurs welcome Watford to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday, looking to enter the international break with three wins from three Premier League games.
Nuno Espirito Santo has enjoyed a solid start to life in north London, leading them to victories over Manchester City and former side Wolves.
Tottenham secured their place in the group stage of the Europa Conference League on Thursday night, but switch their attentions back to the Premier League for the visit of Xisco Munoz’s Hornets.
Watford beat a much-fancied Aston Villa side on the opening day before losing at Brighton last week, but have made a good account for themselves so far following promotion from the Championship.
Here’s 90min’s preview of the game.
What time is kick-off? 14:00 (BST)
Where is it being played? Tottenham Hotspur Stadium
TV channel? Peacock (US)
Referee? Andre Marriner
VAR? Jarred Gillett
Harry Kane is expected to lead the line again after making his first start in midweek, bagging a brace as Spurs beat Pacos de Ferreira 3-0.
Son Heung-min and Dele Alli will come back into the starting lineup after Nuno hugely rotated for their Europa Conference League play-off.
Tanguy Ndombele will not feature as he looks to force a move before the transfer deadline, while Joe Rodon is still recovering from a knock.
Popular YouTuber and part-time footballer Ben Foster is out until after the international break with a hamstring injury, but Juraj Kucka is expected to return following a thigh problem.
Joao Pedro, Dan Gosling and Nathaniel Chalobah are all out, but new signing Moussa Sissoko could make his debut for his new side at the home of his old one.
Spurs: Lloris; Tanganga, Romero, Dier, Reguilon; Hojbjerg, Skipp, Dele; Bergwijn, Kane, Son
Watford: Bachmann; Cathcart, Troost-Ekong, Kabasele, Masina; Etebo, Cleverley, Louza; Sarr, Dennis, Sema
The two clubs have met a nice round 50 times in their histories to date, with Spurs 31 wins to Watford’s eight.
In Watford’s last Premier League campaign, they managed to pick up two huge draws with Spurs. A 1-1 stalemate on the road was followed by a 0-0 draw at Vicarage Road.
Tottenham gave up possession pretty easily in their opening two Premier League games, and this will be a chance for fans to get an idea of how Nuno wants Spurs to play when they’re the protagonists.
They looked dangerous against Pacos on Thursday, and with Kane back in the fold, you’d fancy Spurs to put Watford away pretty comfortably on Sunday.
Prediction: Spurs 2-0 Watford
