Mauricio Pochettino provides injury updates ahead of Tottenham vs Watford

Tottenham take on Watford on Wednesday evening in the third round of the League Cup.

Ahead of the game Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino has been providing injury updates on several players.

Hugo Lloris & Michel Vorm

When Spurs took on Brighton this past weekend they had to play Paulo Gazzaniga in goal.

This was because Spurs two main keepers, Hugo Lloris and Michel Vorm were out through injury.

Lloris has missed several big games for Spurs through injury, including against Inter Milan where Vorm had to take his place.

Unfortunately, Vorm himself then suffered an injury causing Gazzaniga to play vs Brighton.

But it does look as though neither Lloris or Vorm will be 100% fit for Spurs clash with Watford.

This is because Hugo Lloris has progressed to field work but is not yet fully fit.

While Vorm still has some swelling on his knee and is continuing rehab.

Tottenham vs Watford

The meeting between Tottenham and Watford on Wednesday evening will already be their second of the season.

Before Spurs first clash with Watford, they had enjoyed a good start to the season.

Tottenham beat Newcastle 2-1, Fulham 3-1 and Manchester United 3-0.

However, vs Watford, Spurs looked very poor and would lose the game 2-1.

Pochettino’s side would then lose another two games to Liverpool and Inter Milan.

They did, however, bounce back in their last game vs Brighton.

But given Spurs serious lack of trophies in recent years, perhaps Pochettino will make the League Cup a priority of his this season.

As for Watford, they have enjoyed a solid start to the 2018/19 season.

The Hornets would win their first four league games of the season.

But they would then lose to Manchester United 2-1 and draw 1-1 with Fulham.
