Happy New Year, Spurs fans! If you have a minute, spare a moment to remember the Americans who have to get up extra early to watch and cover this game on New Year’s Day. We’re tired, and probably still hung over.

2016 has ended, and Spurs are on a winning streak. Spurs close out the first half of the Premier League season with a trip to Vicarage Road, where they face Watford.

Last time Spurs were here, the hosts gave them just about all they could handle and nearly came away with a result before Son Heung-Min scored his LAST-MINUTE-MIDAIR-NUTMEG-MATCH-WINNING GOAL and Spurs escaped with all three points and a 2-1 vicory. This season Spurs are again the favorites on paper, but games aren’t played on paper. Kyle Walker and Jan Vertonghen will both miss the match after picking up their fifth yellow cards of the season against Southampton. With a massive home match against Chelsea coming up next week, Mauricio Pochettino is likely to use this as an opportunity to give a few of his key players a rest. Except Harry Kane, because Harry Kane is a cyborg.

Watford, meanwhile, are solidly mid table with 22 points and their leading scorer is, hilariously, former Tottenham midfielder Etienne Capoue with five goals. The Frenchman is having a great season for the Hornets thus far and has apparently found his footing in the Premier League. Spurs fans will also remember Watford goalkeeper Gomes, a Brazilian who made some amazing stops and some hilarious gaffes during his years at White Hart Lane. Watford’s defense isn’t great, but it’s never good to underestimate Gomes, who can earn his team a point on his own on a good day.

With Manchester City losing yesterday and Arsenal hosting Big Sam-led Crystal Palace, this is a good opportunity for Spurs to make up some ground and leapfrog into fourth place by the end of the calendar year.
