Leicester City Prediction – Can Leicester continue momentum?

Leicester City collected a sixth win on the trot on Saturday when they recorded a 2-1 home win against Everton at the King Power Stadium which helped maintain Leicester’s position behind runaway league leaders, Liverpool, but another three points here against Watford would certainly keep the pressure on.

The Foxes are at home once again on Wednesday night when they play host to struggling Watford who have just parted ways with former manager, Quique Sanchez Flores who was sacked after failing to turn around The Hornets’ poor results and was sacked a second time at Vicarage Road.

The contrast compared to Leicester is staggering as the hosts have built some impressive momentum under manager Brendan Rodgers, as they possess a strong home record of 6-1-0 16/4 which includes 3 clean sheets and scoring 2 goals or more in 6 of their 7 home matches to date.

Rodgers will also have the likes of strikers Vardy (13 goals), Perez (4 goals) and Iheanacho straining at the leash to get at this shaky Watford defence on Wednesday night.

Watford Prediction – Can Watford grab a lifeline?

Sitting rock bottom of the Premier League with just 8 points from their first 14 matches of the season and recently parting ways with former manager, Flores, Watford find themselves in a real mess at the basement of the top flight prior to their trip to face an in-form and rampant Leicester City outfit.

The visitors’ current predicament hasn’t been helped by the fact that they’ve lost 3 of their last 4 matches overall in the Premier League following defeats to Chelsea, Burnley and Southampton, although they did grab their first win of the season in a recent 2-0 win away from home at fellow strugglers, Norwich City, a few weeks ago.

Watford possess a poor away record of 1-2-4 5/15 which is bad enough but at least they’ve registered a win on the road which is more than can be said so far at their Vicarage Road ground, and it gives The Hornets a glimmer of hope for their trip to the east midlands on Wednesday night.

With just 3 away wins out of their last 15 matches on their travels though, the odds look firmly stacked against them here, and having kept just 1 clean sheet from their 7 away matches to date this season, they’ll do well to escape a heavy defeat here.


Key-Facts – Leicester City vs Watford

  • Leicester City have won their last 6 matches on the trot in the Premier League
  • Leicester City have scored 2 goals or more in 6 of their 7 home matches
  • Watford have won just 3 of their last 15 matches on their travels


Betting Tips Verdict

Leicester City are on a roll and should not only win this one but also by a comfortable margin.
