Leicester hosts Watford at the King Power Stadium on Saturday in the Premier League, with the home looking to continue their rich vein of form in the Premier League.
Leicester are enjoying an excellent first campaign under Claudio Ranieri and currently sit third in the Premier League table, just three points behind league leaders Manchester City.
The Foxes have been the kings of the comebacks this season and last time out they did it again. Ranieri’s side went one goal down at West Brom, only to come back and win 3-2 at the Hawthorns courtesy of a brace from Riyad Mahrez and a strike from red hot striker Jamie Vardy.
Vardy is the Premier League’s top scorer with 11 goals and has scored in eight consecutive league games. He only needs to score in two more games to equal Ruud van Nistelrooy’s record of scoring in ten consecutive games.
Watford heads into this game on the back of back-to-back Premier League victories over Stoke and last time out West Ham. The Hornets claimed a 2-0 win against the Hammers, with in-form Odion Ighalo scoring a brace to take his league total up to seven top-flight goals this season.
The Hornets are now 11th in the Premier League and have kept clean sheets in their last two top-flight games.

The last time these two teams met in the league was in the Championship, which resulted in a 2-2 draw at the King Power Stadium.
Leicester has lost just once in their last 15 Premier League games.
The Foxes has scored two or more goals in six of their last seven top-flight games. There have also been over 2.5 goals in six of their last seven games in the Premier League.
In contrast eight of Watford’s last ten top-flight games has saw under 2.5 goals scored.

Team News

The home side are likely to remain unchanged from the win at West Brom last time out. Midfielder Matthew James is likely to remain sidelined through injury, while full-back Christian Fuchs is also a doubt for the clash.
Watford are still likely to be without defender Joel Ekstrand, while midfielder Jose Manuel Jurado and star striker Odion Ighalo are doubts, with the latter likely to recover from a knock sustained in the win against West Ham.

Possible Leicester team line-up: Schmeichel, Simpson, Morgan, Huth, Schlupp, Mahrez, Drinkwater, Kante, Albrighton, Ulloa, Vardy

Possible Watford team line-up: Gomes, Nyom, Cathcart, Britos, Ake, Watson, Capoue, Anya, Deeney, Abdi, Ighalo

Leicester v Watford Match Prediction

This clash is a case of one of the best attacks in the league coming up against one of the most stubborn backlines in the top-flight. Despite Watford’s decent defensive record I really do think that the Leicester double act of Mahrez and Vardy will be too much for the visitors and this should be an easy home win for Leicester (17/20).
