Leicester vs Watford: Premier League preview

Leicester City host Watford at the King Power Stadium on Saturday.

Leicester extended their unbeaten run to four matches on Tuesday night after beating Fleetwood Town 2-0 in their FA Cup third round replay.

Kalechi Iheanacho scored a brace as Claude Puel opted for rotation.

Last weekend the Foxes held Chelsea to a 0-0 draw at Stamford Bridge; a result which leaves them 8th in the table.

Watford: One win in their last 10 matches

Watford came back from 2-0 down last weekend to draw 2-2 against Southampton. Andre Gray pulled one back for Watford in the second half before Abdoulaye Doucoure netted in stoppage time (with his hand) to earn a point.

The draw will give Marco Silva’s side some confidence, although they’ve only won one of their last 10 league matches.

Watford won the reverse fixture 2-1 on Boxing Day at Vicarage Road. Riyad Mahrez opened the scoring before Watford turned things around through former Leicester player Molla Wague, and an own goal from Kasper Schmeichel.
