Etienne Capoue is very confident ahead of Saturday.
He believes that Watford will definitely beat Newcastle, if they carry forward their recent performances.
A confident statement considering that the Hornets have won none of their last seven Premier League matches and indeed, haven’t scored a goal in their last five hours of football.
Etienne Capoue is himself struggling for goals, with seven last season in the league, he has only managed one this time.
Back in November it was a horror show at St James Park.
At the time Newcastle were in the middle of a run where they picked up only one point in nine games.
Watford gave them the total runaround and won 3-0, Capoue watching that from the bench.
On Monday though the 29 year old midfielder was one of Watford’s star players and only superb saves from Lloris meant an eventual comfortable looking 2-0 scoreline for Spurs at Wembley.
Having five shots on goal to only three for Tottenham, Etienne Capoue feels that having done that ‘against a big team’, they ‘are going to score on Saturday…I feel it.’
Newcastle have now failed to score in successive PL games for the first time in 2018, so they also need to find some goals.
“We created a lot of chances [against Tottenham] and this is important for the team, the strikers and the attacking midfielders.
“We kept creating chances against a big team, so we are in the right way, and we are going to score on Saturday…I feel it.
“We managed to create chances and if we keep doing it, we will begin to get results.
“We want to be focused on Newcastle and if we play like that we will get the points against Newcastle.
“Lloris is a top keeper in a top team, and he is one of the best in the world, which he showed today.
“Both goals are at the wrong time because we were doing well…but this is football.
“Every goal is about mistakes or something going wrong – he intent was there though.”
