          Leicester vs Watford Prediction, Tips & Stats

          Leicester City welcome Watford to the King Power Stadium this Saturday, with the hosts looking to return to winning ways. The recent head-to-head record has been dominated by the Foxes, and they are the favourites ahead of the fixture.

          Leicester

          After 16 matches in the Championship, Leicester City lead the way with 39 points, winning 13 matches in the process. Not only have the Foxes scored the second most amount of goals (29), but they've also conceded the least (10), which highlights just how impressive they have been with Enzo Maresca at the helm. They have won six of their eight home matches this season and if they score, they do not lose, with all of their defeats ending 1-0.

          However, two of their three losses have occurred in consecutive games, with the latest being a 1-0 away defeat to Middlesbrough. The Foxes dominated the tie but lacked the cutting edge that the hosts found ten minutes from time via Sam Greenwood.

          Watford

          The Hornets struggled at the beginning of the season after the dominant opening day victory over QPR, but they are unbeaten in their last six matches, with Valerian Ismael making his side much more defensively secure. Watford have conceded 1.13 goals per game on average this season, keeping a clean sheet in four of their last five. However, they have still found it difficult in the final third, especially on the road where they net just 0.71 goals per game on average.

          That said, they picked up another three points last time out in an emphatic 5-0 home win over Rotherham. Watford were free-flowing in attack from the first whistle to the last, tearing the opponent apart. Mileta Rajovic scored twice making it three goals from his last three matches.

          Verdict?

          The quality in the Leicester squad is Premier League standard and that looks set to be their next destination, yet they need to put this blip behind them this weekend. Watford do struggle to score on the road, and it is difficult to see the hosts blanking for a third game in a row.

          The final prediction is Leicester 2-0 Watford.

          Leicester Team News

          Wilfried Ndidi, Dennis Praet and Callum Doyle are set to return next month, but Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall, Stephy Mavididi and captain, Ricardo Pereira will all start.

          Watford Team News

          Watford seem to have a fully fit squad and the team that beat Rotherham should be fielded again, with Wesley Hoedt captaining the side from the back in a 4-3-3.
