WAT Vs TOT Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Rejuvenated Watford look to make the most of a wobbling Tottenham outfit today.
Two sides, placed in opposing ends of the points tally but enduring opposing seasons at the moment. Going by the recent set of evens in the Premier League, a newcomer would have been forgiven for believing tat it was Tottenham scraping out in the relegation battle rather than Watford.
Where Tottenham have once again hit a rock in their season, embroiled in a lull with the side registering just the two wins in the last five encounters, Watford on the other hand have managed to recharge their reason. From managing to register just the one win at the halfway mark to now mustering up four wins in their last five matches, the side have managed to completely overhaul a massively underachieving season.
Their current form has instilled fresh belief in Watford’s ranks, seeing them rise out of the bottom spot to move all the way into 17th spot with a 3-0 thumping of Bournemouth the last time around. It has been an unprecedented last month for the club, one which has seen them silence their naysayers to exult confidence which was earlier lacking severely.
For Tottenham who are coming into today’s encounter fresh off a 1-0 defeat to Liverpool, this tie is going to be another stern test. The side’s defence makes for tepid viewing, an underwhelming backline which is going to find it extremely hard to contain Watford with us envisioning this encounter being a draw.
Probable Playing 11
- Welbeck, Prodl and Kiko Femenia all continue to stay out owing to injuries for Watford.

WAT Vs TOT Dream11 Goal-Keeper
As Lloris edges closer to a return for Tottenham, Paolo Gazzaniga will be well aware that his days in the side’s playing 11 are numbered. However, he’s set to play for them today and with a slew of solid stops in their FA Cup tie previously in the week, we are going to go in with him as our shot stopper.
WAT Vs TOT Dream11 Defenders
Had it been earlier in the season, our picking up two defenders from Watford would have been laughed at and rightfully so. It not the case anymore with the side thriving defensively, keeping three cleansheets in their last five matches to see us entrust the defensive selections from the side from this one.
Also what saw us repose faith in the side’s backline was Tottenham’s predicament in finding goals off late with several of their star performers out owing to injuries. Both Christian Kabasele and Adrain Mariappa will be looking to shun this lacklustre Tottenham side from scoring, a task we envision them pulling off as well.
From the visiting side meanwhile we are getting in just the one player for this one in the form of Japhet Tanganga. The player was handed over a surprise debut against Liverpool, one he flourished in and a showing which should have sufficed in him getting another encounter today.
WAT Vs TOT Dream11 Midfielders
We begin this component of our Dream 11 side with two picks from Watford who have played a quintessential role in the side’s revival. In Ismaila Sarr and Abdoulaye Doucoure, the side has two players who have imbued fresh life into their wavering campaign with the two torching their way down the park to move n tandem and manifest their attacking penchant into goals and assists for the club.
Nathaniel Chalobah was solid in his CDM role the last time around to see us pick him up as well while from Tottenham we are going in with just Harry Winks. With Christian Eriksen, Lamela and Giovanni Lo Celso all being toyed around with at the moment, Winks is the only player to retain his spot in the playing 11 every encounter and with his ability to pick up a goal scoring pass or cross, he becomes a safe pick for this one.
WAT Vs TOT Dream11 Strikers
In Harry Kane’s absence, the onus on Lucas Moura has grown massively to full in the void left by the striker. And he’s managed to fill in the gaping hole with goals at crucial junctures for the club to make him our first pick from Tottenham along with Heung-Min Son who has come up with the 6 goals and 9 assists for his side.
Meanwhile, Watford will find representation in the form of their top goal scorer with the 4 goals and 3 assists, Gerard Deulofeu.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Moura will captain our team for the day while Sarr is our vice-captain.
