Watford vs Leicester City PredictionRelegation-threatened Watford are set to welcome high-flying Leicester City to Vicarage Road on Saturday afternoon for a crunch Premier League clash, both sides tussling for bragging rights and more importantly, maximum points.
Match status: 2019/20 Premier League - Matchweek 10
Venue: Vicarage Road (Watford)
Following a slow start to the campaign, Watford remained rooted to the bottom of the standings for a really long time. However, the Hornets have seemed rejuvenated since the turn of the year, having churned out a couple of impressive results.

Nigel Pearson’s side have now managed to escape the highly-dreaded drop-zone but are still level on points with 18th-placed Bournemouth. They will have to continue bagging the three points, week in week out, to avoid plunging into the relegation places, once again.

Now, scheduled to take on second-placed Leicester City this weekend, they might well have been fixed-up with a date alongside the devil. The Foxes have easily been one of the better sides in the league and are well on-course for a top-four finish.

To stand any chances against this foe, Nigel Pearson’s charges will be required to put their best foot forward. Expect a thriller of a game come kick-off.

Watford vs Leicester City Team News

Having struggled to get going at the start of the term, things have been looking up at Vicarage Road in recent weeks. A string of wins prior to the COVID-19 break saw them rise above the relegation area. The Hornets will now set their sights on steering further away from this zone over the coming weeks.

Last time out, on the road to Selhurst Park, Watford were faced with the challenge of upstaging a strong Crystal Palace side. Headed into the game on the back of a couple of impressive results, some sections of the media justifiably tipped them for the win.

For all their dominance throughout the game, Watford just couldn’t find a route past the opposition defense as all their attacking efforts proved futile. Ultimately, the Hornets were forced home empty-handed with a 0-1 defeat on the board.

Hoping to retain their place behind run-away league leaders Liverpool, Leicester City were out to get relegation-contenders Aston Villa on the last match-day. A routine win expected from the Foxes, Brendan Rodger’s charges duly delivered.

The top-four side completely outclassed their opposition in every single department on the pitch, knocking four unanswered goals past the Villans. Braces from Barnes and Jamie Vardy were enough to clinch a comfortable victory for Leicester City.

For this fixture, Leicester City are considered favorites for the win. Having endured a recent rough patch, the Foxes have since bounced back to winning ways with their commanding victory over Aston Villa. Now, they will be looking to pick up from where they left off when they take on Watford this weekend. 

In a tale of contrasting fortunes, Watford find themselves on opposite sides of the standings, and are on thin ice. A minor blip could see them plummet into the relegation places. Worryingly for the Hornets, they have not fared well against this foe in recent h2h encounters.

Watford vs Leicester Predictions

Even though Watford seem to have turned a corner recently with things at Vicarage Road looking up, they are very unlikely to salvage anything meaningful from this fixture. They have defensive frailties of their own and will struggle to keep the likes of Jamie Vardy and James Maddison at bay throughout the game.

Fancy a comfortable away win here, with the Foxes grabbing more than two goals to clinch maximum points. Also, given Watford’s desperation for points, they should register a goal, at the least, before the sound of the final whistle.
