Livermore: Beware of Hornets’ sting

Tottenham Hotspur youngster Jake Livermore has warned his Spurs colleagues to beware of Watford in the sides’ FA Cup clash.


The White Hart Lane graduate was speaking ahead of Spurs' fourth round tie at Vicarage Road tonight.


Livermore will be hoping to make an appearance in the fixture and is prepared for a tough test should he be picked.


“It always a difficult place to go. They've a good side, plenty of good professionals and they will be well up for it, but so will we,” he told the Spurs official website.


“We're all determined to do well in the FA Cup. Every player wants to go to Wembley and to go there with Tottenham would be brilliant.”


Livermore has had a breakthrough year at White Hart Lane and Harry Redknapp has called upon him 24 times already this season.


This is an impressive figure considering names such as Scott Parker, Sandro and Tom Huddlestone have been ahead of him in the pecking order.


The 22-year-old had taken advantage of injuries to the latter two of that list and has done much to press his case for a berth in the starting XI.


One reason for Livermore’s caution in the tie with the Hornets could be that he has been on the losing side at Vicarage Road before.


He was part of an Ipswich Town side that were beaten 2-1 there last season, when he was on loan to the Championship side.
