Watford:

Watford's injury crisis intensified ahead of their Premier League match with Tottenham with Walter Mazzarri's side left with a threadbare defence.

Centre-back Younes Kaboul suffered a hamstring injury against Sunderland and defender Sebastian Prodl is recovering from a rib injury, while centre-back Miguel Britos is suspended. Defender Christian Kabasele is back in contention after he returned to training following two months out with a hip problem.

Striker Troy Deeney and midfielders Tom Cleverley and Abdoulaye Doucoure are all "very fatigued", according to Mazzarri, while Etienne Capoue, Valon Behrami and goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes are also doubts. Roberto Pereyra (knee), Mauro Zarate (anterior cruciate ligament) and Ben Watson (groin strain) are all long-term absentees.

Provisional squad:Gomes, Cathcart, Janmaat, Niang, Capoue, Doucoure, Cleverley, Deeney, Pantilimon, Mariappa, Amrabat, Success, Zuniga, Holebas, Okaka, Stewart, Kabasele.

What are they saying?

Mauricio Pochettino on Harry Kane

"Harry's had a few sessions before, and today he was involved with the team," Pochettino said.

"And we'll see tomorrow whether he will start the game or be on the bench. But it's good news that he's ready. He feels good for his recovery.

"It's very good news for him and for us. He's an important player for us, and for him to be available for us is great.

"We are happy, he's ready, maybe normally after one month out you need to feel the competition. But he's a special player, he tries to push himself a lot."

Walter Mazzarri

"There are two things we need to see before the season ends: mentality and we need a winning mentality, then we will see for next season who wants to stay in the squad.

"I signed a three-year contract and it is clear I want to stay.

"In football things change, but we have a project with the president of the club and I want to see it through to the end."

What are the odds?

  • Tottenham win - 5/19
  • Draw - 11/2
  • Watford - 17/1

What's our prediction?

Matt Law:

Maurico Pochettino’s men have proved they will not roll over and allow Chelsea to coast to the Premier League title.

Watford have pretty mush assured their safety for another season, so it is Spurs, aiming for a sixth successive victory, who have far more to play for.

Prediction: Tottenham 3, Watford 0
