Watford 0-0 Tottenham LIVE! Premier League match stream, latest score and goal updates today

    Spurs will hope to jump back into fifth in the Premier League as they make the short trip to struggling Watford on New Year’s Day.

    Tottenham remain unbeaten in domestic action under Antonio Conte and have games in hand as they push for Champions League qualification, yet their momentum was stunted somewhat by a disappointing draw against 10-man Southampton to end 2021.

    But they will be strong favourites to see off a Watford team that have lost each of their last five games – including a 4-1 drubbing by West Ham in midweek – to head into the New Year sitting 17th and just two points above the relegation zone.

    Such a dismal run has led to speculation over another managerial change, with reports that Claudio Ranieri’s position could already be under threat after only three months at the helm.

    The Hornets will be boosted by influential forward Emmanuel Dennis remaining at the club this month rather than joining up with Nigeria for the Africa Cup of Nations.

    Most of Tottenham’s play is going through right wing-back Royal but he hasn’t managed to put in a really dangerous delivery yet. The home crowd are growing frustrated at Watford’s lack of ambition but, as it stands, Claudio Ranieri will be the happier manager.
