Leicester are going through a tough period in the Premiership and have gone three games without a win. They will be looking for a change in fortunes when they entertain Watford at the King Power Stadium. Leicester have dropped to twelfth position with just 15 points while Watford are in 16th position with 13 points. The home will be confident playing a team that they have lost just once to in twelve home matches. Leicester were well beaten 3-0 by leaders Chelsea in their last league match. That was their second home loss in a row without scoring a goal. They have not lost three consecutive home games without scoring since 1983. Leicester have scored just seven goals in their six home matches with four coming in one match. The home team have conceded 21 goals this season and is the third worst defensive record with only the two bottom teams having conceded more.
Watford had an incredible 4-1 win against Manchester United in their last match which resulted in the sacking of United boss Solskjær. They will look to put pressure on another manager Brendon Rogers and win for the just the second time in 20 away matches to Leicester. In all of Watford’s winning matches this season they have scored a minimum of three goals. On each occasion that Watford have scored the opening goal this season they have gone on to win the match. In their away matches this season Watford have won two and lost four and are yet to draw a match on the road.
Leicester will want to avoid a third successive home defeat and will be glad they are playing against a team that they have had a lot of success against. We are backing Leicester to end their slump and win this match.
