Watford v Tottenham Hotspur live stream, Saturday 1 January, 3pm GMT
Tottenham will be looking to return to winning ways when they make the short trip to Watford on New Year’s Day.
Spurs (opens in new tab) remain unbeaten in the Premier League since Antonio Conte took charge, but they were frustrated in their last match on Tuesday. Their opponents Southampton (opens in new tab) were reduced to 10 men in the 39th minute when Mohammed Salisu was given his marching orders.
Harry Kane converted the penalty that was awarded for Salisu’s foul on Son Heung-min, and Tottenham were expected to push on and pick up all three points. Instead, they struggled to break down Southampton’s rearguard in the second half and only departed St Mary’s with a 1-1 draw.
Still, the direction of travel under Conte bodes well for Spurs going forward. They have collected 15 points from a possible 21 since the Italian took the reins, and a top-four finish suddenly looks like a realistic objective once more.
Watford (opens in new tab) took the lead against West Ham (opens in new tab) last time out, but that proved to be a false dawn as they crashed to a 4-1 defeat. The Hornets have now lost eight of their 10 matches under Claudio Ranieri, who may start to fear for his job if victories continue to prove elusive.
The Hornets remain outside the bottom three for now, but a return of 13 points from 17 games suggests they will struggle to stay in the division unless things improve in the second half of the campaign.
Tottenham will have to make do without Cristian Romero, Steven Bergwijn, Giovani Lo Celso and Ryan Sessegnon. Lucas Moura could come back into the starting XI after beginning the draw with Southampton on the bench.
Watford will be unable to call upon the services of Ismaila Sarr, Ben Foster, Peter Etebo, Kwadwo Baah, Christian Kabasele, Nicolas N'Koulou, Danny Rose and Tom Cleverley.
Kick-off is at 3pm GMT on Saturday 1 January. See below for international broadcast options.

Use a VPN to watch Premier League football from outside your country
If you’re out of the country for a round of Premier League fixtures, then annoyingly your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!). You'll be blocked from watching it, which is not ideal if you’ve paid up for a subscription and still want to catch the action without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.
But assistance is on hand. To get around that, all you have to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and won't automatically block the service you've paid for. All the info going between is entirely encrypted – and that's a result.
There are plenty of good-value options out there, including:
ExpressVPN including a 30-day, money-back guarantee
