Leicester vs Watford


10th vs 9th



Claude Puel will be keen to see his side turn draws into wins, having ended level on 90 minutes in four of their last five in this current unbeaten run (in all competitions).

Watford, who this week handed manager Javi Gracia a new four-and-a-half year deal, started the season well but are without a win in their last three.

It’s ninth versus tenth and another tough one to call but, even without suspended star James Maddison, the feeling is the Foxes will make the home advantage count.

Watford have won just two on the road all season and tend to struggle on their travels to the King Power.

Leicester have won eight of their last 10 home matches against Watford in all competitions (see Opta facts, below), scoring at least two in nine of their last 11 home meetings with the Hornets.

Watford, meanwhile, have conceded two or more in four of their five meetings with top-half opposition this season (v Man United, Arsenal, Bournemouth and Liverpool).


Leicester City have won all four of their home Premier League matches against Watford, scoring eight goals and conceding just once.

Watford have won just one of their last 11 away matches at the King Power Stadium against Leicester in all competitions (D2 L8), a 2-1 victory in April 2013 in the Championship.

Leicester are unbeaten in four Premier League games (W1 D3), last going five without defeat in December 2017.

Leicester have conceded a league-high share 65% of their Premier League goals in the first half of games this season (11/17), with five of those coming in the opening 15 minutes.

Watford have kept just one clean sheet in their last 12 away Premier League games (W2 D2 L8), a 2-0 win at Wolves in October.

Just one of Leicester striker Jamie Vardy’s four Premier League goals this season have been at home. He’s failed to score in his last three home league games, his longest drought at the King Power Stadium since November 2016 (5 games).

Watford’s Jose Holebas has been directly involved in six Premier League goals this season, more than any other defender in the competition (2 goals, 4 assists).
