Tipsters: Hornets to be stung by Spurs

Cape Town - Watford are seldom associated with top-of-table clashes … but that’s what happens on Sunday when they entertain Tottenham in an English Premiership derby of sorts.

Both have perfect records after three matches, but the Sport24 forecasters overwhelmingly fancy visitors Spurs to lower the Hornets’ colours.

It was 1-1 between them at Vicarage Road last season, Tottenham scrapping for the point as they spent most of the second half down to 10 men.

Compiled by Rob Houwing (Newcastle-partial), the others are Garrin Lambley (Everton, and defending champion), Lloyd Burnard, Tashreeq Vardien, Baden Gillion and Lynn Butler (all Man Utd) plus Craig Taylor (Liverpool).

Three points are awarded for an entirely correct score-line, and one for right result.
