Watford dealt double injury blow ahead of Leicester

Watford dealt double injury blow ahead of Leicester

Leicester vs Watford

Watford will be in Premier League action against Leicester City this coming Sunday.

The Hornets head into the game having moved four points above the relegation zone thanks to two wins from their last five league outings.

Their latest marked one of the most shocking of the Premier League season thus far, seeing Manchester United put to the sword by four goals to one – a result which brought about the dismissal of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Now, Watford turn their attentions towards a Leicester tie which they likely fancy their chances of getting something from.

The Foxes are currently 12th in the Premier League, and have failed to win any of their last three league games.

Watford duo set to miss Leicester tie

Watford, though, are set to face Brendan Rodgers’ side without the services of two key players.

As reported by the club themselves, both Ismaila Sarr and Nicolas Nkoulou will be out of action this weekend due to injuries picked up vs Man United:

Watford duo Ismaïla Sarr and Nicolas Nkoulou will both miss Sunday’s trip to Leicester City with injuries picked up during the 4-1 win over Manchester United.

It is added that:

The extent of the injuries to Sarr (knee) and Nkoulou (hamstring) is still being evaluated, however neither will play any part at the King Power Stadium.
