Spurs drift on Premier League outright market following 2-1 reverse at Vicarage Road
Tottenham Hotspur were all the rage in the 2018/19 Premier League outright market after winning at Old Trafford although it was a case of after the Lord Mayor’s Show on Sunday afternoon.
Spurs led 1-0 thanks to Abdoulaye Doucoure’s own goal although it wasn’t a convicing performance at that stage and Watford stormed back to claim a 2-1 victory.
BetVictor have lengthened Spurs’ title odds to 20/1 after the defeat, with Mauricio Pochettino admitting that there was a lack of aggression from his side.
“It’s so painful to concede two goals like we did and it’s so painful that the first half looks like a friendly,” Pochettino said. “We needed to go out there like a lion. But it was like: ‘OK, we play football, we play football.’ Show aggression!
“When you score, you keep going, playing the same way but we started to change and play long balls. Then we conceded two goals that if you want to be a contender, you cannot concede. You need to show your strength. The reality is that if you want to be a contender, today we needed to win. And win easily because everything was ready to win the game.
“We need to show more respect to this competition and compete much, much better. It’s difficult for me to understand. It was very painful. I think it’s a good wake-up call for everyone.”
Watford are trading at 750/1 with BetVictor after their perfect start to the season, with the Hornets getting off to a flyer and getting plenty of points on the board already.
They face Manchester United after the international break and some will be wondering if they are capable of “doing a Leicester” this season.
