Watford are unbeaten in their last five league home games against Tottenham and have kept six clean sheets at Vicarage Road this season.
For Carroll, Spurs must be wary of the duo when they travel to Vicarage Road to play Watford on Monday afternoon, feeling the pair will provide his side’s defense with a test.
FC’s Tommy Smyth shares his insight on Tottenham Hotspur’s important win against Watford in the Premier League.
“They have fantastic desire to play for the fans against a very tough team but the first feeling of course is sad because we are really close to taking one point against an awesome team”.
Pochettino said: “Sometimes I think it is good when you feel from the touchline the energy is a little bit down, always I can help the players, the people, and you know in the Premier League the game is not finished until the referee blows the final whistle”.
“There was a moment after 50 minutes in the second-half when we played brilliantly but did not kill the game”.
“I was only a little bit disappointed with the way that we conceded the goal”.
Watford’s Nathan Ake is available after being ineligible to face his parent club Chelsea on Boxing Day. The win sees the North Londoners move up to third in the table and within three points of leaders Leicester. Many expected the newly promoted side to be languishing in the relegation area but they have proven everybody wrong with an exciting brand of football that has surprised fans and opponents alike. “We can now say it was an accident against Newcastle – we’re very pleased with the reaction”, Pochettino said.
“The condition of the pitch made it hard to play how we usually play but we showed great maturity”. “We have been strong at home of late, so hopefully we can take (the Chelsea) performance into the Tottenham game”. Pochettino will make a late decision on Mousa Dembele’s fitness after the midfielder took a knock to his ankle but Ryan Mason is regaining fitness following an ankle problem of his own and could feature.
