Watford striker, Isaac Success has received a strong tip to lead The Hornets’ assault against Tottenham Hotspur this weekend, and help his side pull off a home victory.
This verdict is coming from none less a person than Watford’s coach, Javi Gracia, who said he was impressed to Success score a ‘good’ goal against Reading in the EFL Carabao Cup.
Success snatched the opening goal in The Hornets’ 2-0 away victory on Wednesday, much to Gracia’s delight, and the gaffer is now looking at the former Granada of Spain all-action attacker doing even better against Spurs on Sunday.
The 22-year-old started a game for the first time for the Hornets in two years against the Championship side and did not disappoint
The former youth international has not started a game for The Hornets since 2016, but in the clash against Paul Clement’s team, Success ended his 22-month goal drought.
Last season the forward went on loan to Malaga in an effort to secure more opportunities to play regularly but failed to impress with the Spanish outfit.
Though Success has sparingly featured for his side in their opening league games, he will now hope to get more minutes under his boots against Spurs on Sunday.
Success’ hopes of making hay against Spurs received a huge boost, after his club’s Spanish coach praised the striker for his professional conduct and dramatic goal against Reading.
Gracia stated: “He has scored a good goal for the team. I spoke with every player before the game and tried to explain that they don’t have to show anything different than they usually do in training, in pre-season.
“They are good professionals – the only thing that changed is the opportunity to play. It is very good for the group that they enjoy more minutes.”
