Leicester News and Form – Can Leciester keep winning streak going?

Leicester had to sweat and huff and puff a bit to get their 2-1 home win over Everton on the weekend. But they got the three points thanks to a late intervention by VAR and that moved them on to a six-match winning streak in the top flight. This has been some form from the Foxes who have scored at least two goals in each of their last half dozen games. During that same sequence of games, Leicester have conceded just two goals (four clean sheets).

Their win over Everton on the weekend moved Leicester onto a six-match winning streak at home, part of a W6 D1 record there at the King Power. Jamie Vardy got Leicester’s opening goal on the weekend, making it six consecutive games in which he has scored for his club. Leicester are averaging over two goals per home game this season, giving up only four goals at the King Power. That suggests they are going to have more than enough in the tank to take down a limited Watford attack. 75% of Leicester home goals have happened after the break.

Watford and Form – Can Watford avoid defeat at Leicester?

Things had been looking up for Watford on the weekend when they took the lead in a big game away at Southampton. But they couldn’t hold on and suffered a 2-1 defeat. A win would have moved them off the bottom of the table, but instead, the Hornets missed a golden opportunity and are now six points from safety (seven realistically because of their goal difference). With still over half of the season to come, Watford had to strike quickly and have sacked Quique Flores after just three months in charge. It is a W1 D5 L8 record that the Hornets are on in this campaign.

They have lost three of their last four played, including their last two. They have yet to make it to double fixtures in goals scored in this campaign and that lack of scoring threat probably isn’t going to bode well for them at the King Power. Watford’s away record is W1 D2 L4 and going back to last season as well, it has been just one win in their last eighteen Premier League fixtures. Quite where the light at the end of the tunnel is for them remains a mystery. Maybe the new appointment, whoever it is, will be the answer. But the Hornets have gone through two managers already and nothing has changed this season.

Leicester vs Watford Predictions

Leicester to win: Punters will be all over Leicester as a home banker for this midweek action. Watford are in a mess and don’t offer much of a threat going forward. You have to imagine, given their brilliant record recently, that Leicester can secure a win to nil.
