Our prediction for this EFL Cup match:
Tottenham Hotspur will be aiming to get their revenge on Watford for a shocking 2-1 loss in the Premier League when the two teams take on each other in the EFL Cup round 3 at Stadium mk in Milton Keynes. Spurs head into Wednesday’s football game following a 2-1 win over Brighton and it has to be noted that they put an end to their three-game losing run in all competitions at the weekend. Mauro Pochettino’s troops need to regain a much-need confidence and that is probably the main reason why we are tempted to put our money on the capital club. The Hornets, on the other hand, made a flying start to the season, but we do not believe that they are capable of claiming yet another major scalp. Both coaches should mix the squads in the EFL Cup clash, but Tottenham are still widely expected to make it to the fourth round of the competition.
Highlighted Player (Harry Kane):
Widely regarded as one of England’s best strikers at the moment, Harry Kane enjoyed a meteoric rise at Tottenham Hotspur, scoring 21 Premier League goals during the 2014/2015 campaign to be voted PFA Young Player of the Year.
The highly rated striker went on to surpass that achievement the following season as he helped Tottenham Hotspur mount a serious title challenge for the first time in club’s recent history and he made seamless transition to international football. Kane scored four goals in his first ten appearances for England to prove he was here to stay and at the same time established himself as a first choice striker in Roy Hodgson’s squad ahead of the Euro 2016 finals.
Kane is a modern striker, who is extremely dangerous in the opposition box, but it was some outstanding goals from distance as well as link-up play with teammates that earned him an excellent reputation in world football. Kane is expected to lead both Tottenham and England in years to come, that is if he can resist the lure of top European clubs that continue to cast admiring glances his way.

Watford FC is an English football club founded in 1881 and is playing its home games in the Vicarage Road which holds a capacity of 21 000 seats. Watford managed to promote to the Premier League in 2014/2015 after playing for 8 years in lower football divisions.
