In-form Leicester welcome Watford to the King Power Stadium for a midweek English Premier League clash as they seek their seventh consecutive win. The Foxes are having a superb campaign this season and should ease past bottom placed Watford.

Leicester Form


Leicester came from behind to secure a 2-1 home victory against Everton on Saturday. Kelechi Iheanacho came off the bench to set up Jamie Vardy for the equaliser before netting the winner in injury time.

Despite trailing for much of the match, the Foxes were thoroughly deserving of the win as they had six shots on target and 2.24 expected goals. It was their sixth straight Premier League victory and moves them to within eight points of leaders Liverpool.

Manager Brendan Rodgers has built an exciting team with versatile attacking players. Jamie Vardy’s goal against Everton was his 13th of the season while the likes of Ayoze Perez, Youri Tielemans and James Maddison have also impressed going forward.

Leicester News


Leicester have no major injuries or suspensions and could retain much of the team that faced Everton. Kelechi Iheanacho could once again feature off the bench after his heroics on Sunday.

Watford Form


Watford suffered a 2-1 defeat at Southampton last time out in the Premier League. The Hornets took a first half lead through Ismaila Sarr but conceded twice after the break in a match where they had just three attempts on target and 0.50 expected goals.

The result means Watford have been dragged back down to the foot of the table while Quique Sanchez Flores has become the second managerial casualty at Vicarage Road this season. They have claimed just one win this season and look doomed to take the plunge into the Championship.

Watford News


Captain Troy Deeney made the bench on Saturday having returned from a spell on the sidelines with a knee problem. He could be thrust into the starting lineup on Wednesday with Watford in desperate need of inspiration. Roberto Pereyra is also in contention to feature having also recovered from a brief injury lay off.

Leicester have 18 wins and 10 draws while Watford have claimed 14 victories from 42 previous matches. The Foxes have won the last four meetings at the King Power Stadium, including a 2-0 victory last season with Jamie Vardy and James Maddison getting the goals.

Leicester vs Watford Match Up 


Jamie Vardy’s tally of 13 goals this season, includes seven in his last six matches at the King Power Stadium. Having also scored in his last three matches against Watford, he will be confident of getting on the score sheet on Wednesday.

Aside from having one of the worst defences in the Premier League, Watford also have the poorest attack with just eight goals scored this season. Gerard Deulofeu looks to be their biggest attacking threat with just two goals, but the Spaniard is likely to struggle at the King Power Stadium.
