Watford are certainly giving their fans their money’s worth this season

The Hornets are a great team to watch and it’s no surprise they have picked up five more points away from Vicarage Road this season.

They are set up to counter-attack with the pace of their forwards and the 3-0 win at Newcastle was a very good result.


SPURS have continued with their home struggles at Wembley.

They picked up narrow wins over Bournemouth and Crystal Palace but dropped points against Burnley, Swansea and West Brom.

In all of those games Spurs dominated possession but found it difficult to break teams down while their best home performance — against Liverpool — came when they had less possession.

But not having a plan in place to replace Ronald Koeman is causing major problems, uncertainty and desperation.

In contrast, when Leicester axed Craig Shakespeare they had one league game under caretaker Michael Appleton before Claude Puel was appointed.

Results haven’t taken much of a downturn and that’s down to how quickly the Foxes acted.

RAHEEM STERLING has now scored eight league goals so far this term. His highest in a single season was nine for Liverpool.

The Manchester City star has moved his game to the next level — and that’s down to his finishing.

He’s a player who has always got opportunities but his movement is brilliant and that sets him apart.

His winner at Huddersfield may have been fortunate, but he was in the right place at the right time.

CHARLIE AUSTIN can be key to Southampton moving forward.

He has had a minor injury but the striker has not played a lot for the Saints this season.

Southampton play with plenty of width and put crosses into the penalty box — which suits Austin’s game.

We saw that against Everton as his movement and physicality played a big factor in his two goals.
