Tottenham vs Watford
Tottenham and Watford went head-to-head on Saturday afternoon.
The Hornets would head into the tie dead bottom of the Premier League table, yet to pick up a single victory in the league this campaign.
As for Tottenham, they should have been looking to bounce back from their last PL outing, in which they were comprehensively beaten 3-0 by Brighton at the Amex.
Welbeck injured vs Spurs
To compound Watford’s dismal start to the season, Quique Sanchez Flores’ side were handed an injury blow less than five minutes into the clash at Tottenham.
Danny Welbeck would join Watford over the summer, and has since managed to feature in seven games across all competitions for them, including vs Spurs.
However, Welbeck’s afternoon was cut short on Saturday, when he was replaced inside four minutes by Gerard Deulofeu.
We’re forced into an early change…

The Athletic’s Charlie Eccleshare reported that Welbeck hurt his hamstring vs Spurs.
Welbeck’s done his hammy in the second minute. Is there a more unlucky Premier League footballer with injuries?

But while Watford’s afternoon started on a low, Flores’ side quickly bounced back from Welbeck’s injury.
Abdoulaye Doucoure would put Watford 1-0 up at Tottenham in the 6th minute of the tie.
