Watford vs Leicester Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips


Watford continue their quest for survival with an English Premier League fixture against Leicester at Vicarage Road. The Hornets' home form has been vital to their fight for survival and they are tipped to match highflying Leicester.

Watford Form


Watford failed to build on their impressive 3-0 win over Liverpool as they were beaten 1-0 at Crystal Palace. Efforts from Troy Deeney and Abdoulaye Doucoure were saved by the Palace keeper as they failed to convert any of their three attempts on target.

Nigel Pearson’s men know they need to start picking up points, especially at Vicarage Road where they have suffered just one defeat in their last eight matches.

Watford are often hampered by poor defending and have kept just one clean sheet in their last seven matches in all competitions.

Watford News


Winger Gerard Deulofeu is ruled out for the rest of the season with Roberto Pereyra expected to continue in the place of the Spaniard. Daryl Janmaat is closing on a return but Saturday’s match could come too soon for the defender.


Leicester Form


Leicester returned to winning ways in fine style as they hammered Aston Villa 4-0 in the Premier League on Monday night. Jamie Vardy came off the bench to grab a second half brace while Harvey Barnes also netted twice.

The result ended a run of four Premier League matches without a win for the Foxes, keeping them firmly in the hunt for Champions League football. Brendan Rodgers’ men are unbeaten in six of their last nine matches in all competitions.

Leicester have been less than convincing at the back having conceded in 11 of their last 14 Premier League matches.

Leicester News


Left back Ben Chilwell missed the win over Aston Villa through injury and is a major doubt for Saturday’s match. Striker Jamie Vardy is expected to return to the starting lineup following his brace off the bench on Monday night.

Watford vs Leicester Match Up


Ismaila Sarr’s pace has been a weapon for Watford this season with the winger also possessing an eye for goal. He scored a brace in his last home fixture and should combine well with Troy Deeney who has also impressed lately.

Leicester will be pleased to have top scorer Jamie Vardy back among the goals after taking his tally to 19 for the season. The striker has also found the net five times in 10 previous matches against Watford and will be confident of getting on the score sheet on Saturday.
