Harry Kane is expected to start for Tottenham today as they battle newly-promoted Watford in the Premier League.

Kane confirmed he will be staying for the season after a move to Manchester City never materalised, and scored twice in the Europa Conference League.

Watford have one win and one loss under their belts so far and are looking to beat Spurs for just the second time in 15 Premier League games.

Date, kick-off time and venue

Tottenham vs Watford prediction

Spurs gave more of their first-team regulars a run out in Europe and showed far more cohesion because of it. The return of Kane is a huge boost, of course, and the hosts should have enough to beat the Hornets.

A third win on the bounce, heading into the international window, would be a dream start for Nuno Espirito Santo.
