📏 Form Guide

Watford LLDLWL

Watford won’t want a repeat of their last result here after a 1-0 Premier League losing effort in their last game against Crystal Palace. In that match, Watford had 56% possession and 10 shots on goal with 4 on target. On the other side, Crystal Palace had 10 shots at goal with 3 of them on target. Jordan Ayew (28') scored for Crystal Palace.

It has not been often in recent times where Watford haven’t conceded. In fact, The Hornets have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 matches, leaking 10 goals along the way. We shall soon find out whether or not that trend will be continued on here.

Leicester City DDLLWW 🌤

Leicester City will go into the clash following a 4-0 Premier League win against Aston Villa in their most recent outing. In that match, Leicester City managed 65% possession and 15 attempts on goal with 7 of them on target. For Leicester City, goals were scored by Harvey Barnes (40', 85') and Jamie Vardy (63', 79'). At the other end, Aston Villa had 4 shots on goal with 1 of them on target.

A series of accomplished showings from the Leicester City defensive unit has resulted in their ‘goals against’ tally amounting to 4 from their last 6 fixtures overall. In that time, their forwards have scored 7.

Their previous form shows that Leicester City:

  • have not won against Watford in away games against them for the last 3 league games.
  • haven’t won away from home in the past 3 league games.

👥 Head to head

Checking on their most recent head to head clashes going back to 06/05/2017 tells us that Watford have won 2 of these games and Leicester City 4, with the tally of draws standing at 0.

15 goals were scored between them in this period, with 4 for The Hornets and 11 created by The Foxes. That is an average goals per game value of 2.5.

The previous league match between these clubs was Premier League match day 15 on 04/12/2019 when it finished Leicester City 2-0 Watford. On that occasion, Leicester City had 63% possession and 12 attempts on goal with 6 on target. The goals were scored by Jamie Vardy (55') and James Maddison (95'). Watford had 4 attempts at goal with 1 on target. The match was refereed by Craig Pawson.

📰 Team News: Watford

Daryl Janmaat (Knee Injury) and Gerard Deulofeu (Ruptured cruciate ligament) won’t be able to feature for Watford manager Nigel Pearson.

We are thinking that The Hornets may well opt for a 4-2-3-1 system for the game featuring Ben Foster, Adam Masina, Craig Cathcart, Christian Kabasele, Kiko Femenia, Etienne Capoue, Will Hughes, Roberto Pereyra, Abdoulaye Doucoure, Ismaïla Sarr and Troy Deeney.

📋 Team News: Leicester City

Due to a mostly full-strength squad, there’s just the one fitness issue for the Leicester City gaffer Brendan Rodgers to be concerned about. Ricardo Pereira (Cruciate Ligament Injury) won’t be playing here.

From our viewpoint, The Foxes will likely elect for a 4-1-4-1 system, going with Kasper Schmeichel, James Justin, Jonny Evans, Çağlar Söyüncü, Benjamin Chilwell, Onyinye Wilfred Ndidi, Ayoze Perez, Youri Tielemans, Dennis Praet, Harvey Barnes and Jamie Vardy.

💡 Prediction

In our opinion, Watford may not find it easy to put one past this Leicester City outfit who should end up scoring and staying ahead. We therefore think that it’s going to be a very even match with a 0-1 win for Leicester City at the end of this game. It should be a good one.
