Leicester News and Form

Leicester's hopes of a point were crushed in the last minute of action against Watford last weekend. So it wasn’t a great start for new boss Brendan Rodgers. Leicester are W1 D1 L6 in their last eight Premier League games. It hasn’t been a spectacular season at all from the Foxes who are at W5 D2 L7 at the King Power Stadium in the top flight. During their home campaign, Leicester have scored a total of 16 goals. There has not been a clean sheet recorded by Leicester in any of their last eight games, home and away combined. Leicester have conceded in each of their last seven league home games actually. 61% of the goals that they have conceded at home have been after the halftime break. If you look at the last eight matches played by all teams in the league, Fulham are the only team to have earned fewer points than Leicester. The Foxes have actually only managed to open the scoring in just three of their home games this season. Six of their tens wins recorded this season have been by a one-goal margin.

Fulham News and Form

Fulham were involved in a West London derby against Chelsea last weekend at Craven Cottage and ended up losing 2-1. They did put in a great effort though with Scott Parker in charge for the first time. Still, it leaves them on a five-match losing streak in the Premier League and still, they are a long way from avoiding relegation at this point. Fulham have not enjoyed an away success in the Premier League this season, losing thirteen of fifteen played. They have scored only the nine goals on their travels. Fulham have scored only once in their last three away games as well in the top flight. Last time out on the road they put in a really tame performance at Southampton, who are also in relegation trouble. Just once this season have Fulham recorded an away clean sheet. The Cottagers have not done well at the back at all with an average of 2.5 goals conceded per away game. In eleven of their 15 away games have Fulham been losing at the half time break (W1 D3). The Cottagers have conceded at least two goals in each of their last five Premier League away games and in each of their last nine, home and away.

Watford News and Form

It was a rough midweek game that Watford went through. They suffered a 5-0 loss at Anfield against Liverpool. They had won their two league games prior to that crushing defeat though. The defeat against the Reds leaves Watford at W3 D3 L2 in their last eight games so it’s been a pretty decent return from them. In total, they have a W6 D2 L5 record at home this season and the majority of their problems have been against the top sides. Watford have only lost one of seven home games this season against sides currently in the bottom half of the table. The Hornets have scored 17 and have conceded 18 home goals this season with 69% of fixtures at Vicarage Road going over 2.5 goals. In total Watford have picked up a clean sheet in 31% of their home games. The Hornets have picked up three clean sheets in their last six games, home and away. All but two of the six home wins that they have recorded this season have been by a one-goal margin. Watford are undefeated in their last three home games, all three of those going under 2.5 goals. The Hornets have scored 71% of their home goals not the second half of fixtures.

Key-Facts - Watford v Leicester
  • Watford are undefeated in three home
  • Leicester have no clean sheet in seven
  • Leicester are winless in three on the road
 

Leicester News and Form

Brendan Rodgers will take charge of Leicester for the first time. He was in the stands in midweek as Leicester produced a 2-1 home success over Brighton. That lifted the grey skies around them for sure. Leicester had only picked up the one point from their six previous league games before that. So that victory was extremely welcome from them. Out on their travels this season, Leicester have a W5 D3 L6 record and they have tallied up 18 goals on their travels. Leicester have taken a clean sheet in 29% of away games, and they have conceded at an average of 1.5 goals per road game. Leicester have posted on a D1 L2 record in their last three on the road in the top flight. They have not taken a clean sheet away from any of their last seven league games. In exactly half of their away games played this season, Leicester have been level at the halftime break. They have scored 83% of their road goals in the second half of games.

Watford v Leicester Tips & Odds

Under 2.5 goals at 4/5 1-1 correct score at 11/2 * (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on February 27th, 2019 at 10:34 p.m.)

Watford v Leicester Predictions

Draw: The Foxes will probably be lifted by the new-manager effect. They should be able to go and hold themselves at Watford. The Hornets will probably be happy to avoid defeat in this one after what happened to them in midweek.

Do a Leicester – Premier League History

Cyril's Betting Advice
It's been a very long time since there was an intruder into the Premiership who might just take the title. The Premiership has generally been a carve-up mainly concerning Man. Utd, Arsenal and Chelsea. Although, of late, Man. City have shown more than a passing interest. The only other team to earn a mention in the leagues history is Blackburn Rovers who did a "Leicester" in 1994/95 season when they astounded everyone, except their manager, Kenny Dalglish, when they took the top spot. Going back in time and including the old Football League there was hardly ever an upset. e.g. a team from the bottom half of the previous season's league table winning the title. Those that do stand out are very few indeed. For me there are only two which are memorable. In the old Football League in 1960/61 Ipswich Town were promoted as Division 2 Champions. They then did the unthinkable and won the First Division Title at the first attempt. This gave them entry into the European Cup in which they won their first tie 14 - 1 on aggregate versus Maltese side Floriana. They were then seen off by A.C. Milan. Their glory days in the First Division didn't last for too long either. They finished their second season in the top division just four points above the relegated sides. The following season saw them relegated as wooden spoonists. The next interlopers of note, were Blackburn Rovers. They found themselves in the newly formed Premier League having won via the "play-offs". By this time they had a new chairman, Jack Walker who had installed Kenny Dalglish as manager. They had been quietly plied their trade in the new Premier League. Finishing fourth in the inaugural season 13 points behind champions Man. Utd. The following season again ended in Man. Utd being crowned Champions and just 8 points behind in second place was Blackburn Rovers. The 1994/95 season saw them finish ahead of Man. Utd, depriving them of a third successive title by 0ne point. From this high position they soon found themselves floundering finishing 7th, 13th and then 6th, before being relegated (19th) in the 1998/99 season. They returned to the Premiership for the 2001/02 season after finishing seccond behind Fulham. The 2002/03 season saw their best position (6th) during their eleven year spell before once more being relegated. Apart from that one season their form was never realy more than moderate. Man. Ciry were promoted from the First Division at the end of 2001/02 season. However they didn't make too much of an impact until the 2009/10 season whenthey finished 5th. Thereafter they didn't act like intruders as they finished third the following season and then finished as Premiership Champions 2011/12. This was folloewd by another second place and then they won their second Premiership title in 2013/14. Last season they again slipped to second place. So now we cannot really call them intruders. With all the money now floating around the Premiership clubs it remains to be seen whether any other non-fashionable sides make any kind of breakthrough. The likes of Arsenal cannot be ruled out, of course, but will we see a resurgent Tottenham hotspurs or Liverpool make their presence felt in the coming seasons? Man. utd must always be considered too but only time will tell what damage has been done to them since Ferguson left them pretty much high and dry.

Leicester v Brighton Predictions & Betting Odds – 26th February 2019

Leicester
Leicester v Brighton Betting Tips - Premier League, 26th February 7.45pm Leicester suffered a 4-1 home defeat against Crystal Palace on the weekend. That was the last game in charge for Claude Puel as the Foxes sacked him. That was no great surprise really. Will they get together and get something out of this home fixture? The Seagulls didn’t have a game over the weekend so will be rested. Read our predictions for Leicester v Brighton.

Leicester News and Form

The poor streak of form that Leicester have been on lately continued on the weekend as they were heavily beaten at home by Crystal Palace. The Foxes went down 4-1 against the Eagles. That is three straight league defeats for them now, having picked up only the one point in their last six games played. They are actually W1 D1 L6 in their last eight EPL outings. Little surprise really that Claude Puel got the sack. Leicester only hold a W4 D2 L7 home record in the top flight this term. The Foxes have lost their last four on the bounce at the King Power in the top flight, losing five of their last six there (W1). Leicester have produced 14 goals in their 13 home games, so haven’t been a major offensive threat this season. There’s plenty of room for improvement. Leicester are without a clean sheet in any of their last six games in the top flight (home and away). They haven’t taken one in any of their last six league home games. Less than half of their home games have gone over 2.5 goals.

Leicester v Brighton Head to Head

Brighton and Leicester played out a 1-1 draw in November The Foxes are unbeaten in their last three against the Seagulls The three previous EPL meetings have all ended under 2.5 goals Leicester's last two wins over Brighton have been by a 2-0 scoreline  
Key-Facts - Leicester v Brighton
  • Leicester have lost six of their last eight EPL games
  • The Foxes sacked Claude Puel on the weekend
  • Brighton have won just one of their last eleven league fixtures

Brighton News and Form

Brighton weren’t in league action over the weekend. They were due to play EFL Cup finalists Chelsea. So they got a chance to keep their legs a bit fresher. They need to pick themselves up and regroup a bit too as they have only gained one point in their last five Premier League games. They are winless in six overall now. Looking at their longer form, they have taken just the one league win in their last eleven games. Their defence hasn’t not been as tight as it had been. Brighton have conceded at least two goals in four of their last six. They are W2 D2 L9 overall this season out on the road. Brighton have averaged under a goal per away game. The Seagulls haven’t taken a clean sheet in any of their last eight away from home. Brighton have conceded at least two goals in each of their last four road fixtures. In seven of the thirteen away games this season, Brighton have been behind at the half time break.

Outright draw at 5/6 Under 2.5 goals at 8/11 * (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on February 24th, 2019 at 7:43 p.m.)  

Leicester v Brighton Predictions

Draw: Brighton will have the fresh legs and that could help them get a point in this one. Leicester are going into shaky mode and so it’s hard to know what kind of performance they are going to put out. Draw.

Premiership Rugby Preview - 1.00 pm kick off Worcester are only holding a five-point advantage above bottom side Newcastle but have the chance to try and extend that at home on the weekend. They will be facing up to the Leicester Tigers who have been having a tough time of things as of late.

Worcester 4/6 Leicester 7/5 Draw 18/1 * (betting odds taken from bet365 on February 18th, 2019 at 6:02 pm)

Worcester v Leicester Preview

The Warriors suffered a 33-47 loss out at Harlequins last weekend in a pretty exciting and dynamic game. That didn’t do their Premiership position any good at the end of the day though. That is back to back defeats that they have suffered in all competitions now, but in their last six matches in all competitions, they have produced four wins. Only one of those four wins though were in the Premiership, a narrow 21-19 win over Bath back in early January, Bath having been reduced down to 11-men at one point in the game. One plus for the Warriors is that they have scored more tries than any of the other sides down in the current bottom five along with them. Any points out of this home clash would be huge. They start seven points behind the Tigers. The Warriors are 10/11 odds to cover a -3 handicap* (betting odds taken from bet365 on February 18th, 2019 at 6:02 pm)

Head to head

Leicester boss the head to head between the two sides. They are 11-2 ahead from their previous meetings. In those thirteen clashes Leicester have produced 48 tries to the 29 by the Warriors. The last meeting between them, back which in September saw the Warriors though collected a fantastic 44-37 away win. The Tigers aren’t exactly in great form with a W2 L3 record in their last five games in the Premiership. In their last seven games across all competitions though, they have won just two though, and have lost their last four. Their last two wins have been in Premiership home games. They are on a four-match losing streak on their top-flight travels since a win at Northampton back in early October.

Worcester v Leicester Prediction

This should be a tight game and we are simply going to lean on home advantage being enough to get the Warriors over the line at 4/6 odds. It’s not even worth dipping into the handicap here, just backing the outright home success fits* (betting odds taken from bet365 on February 18th, 2019 at 6:02 pm).

Leicester News and Form

The Foxes are struggling for Premier League form again. From the last 15 points available to them, they have collected just one. To be fair they have been through some tougher fixtures recently, having faced Liverpool, Manchester United and Spurs in their last three games. But also in that winless sequence, there were easier fixtures for them against Wolves and Southampton. The home fans really have to be getting pretty restless by this point because Leicester have lost four of their last five at the King Power Stadium (W1). Across the entire Premier League season the Foxes have only picked up four home victories. Leicester are at W4D2 L6 on home soil this season. Leicester have scored in only two of their last five home league fixtures. The general scoring output has been lower than anticipated, with them having only netted 13 goals at the King Power stadium. They have conceded 13 as well. Leicester have earned a clean sheet in 25% of home fixtures but they are without one in any of their last five.
"The Favourite" & "Roma" received 10 Academy Award nominations

Leicester have conceded 77% of their home goals in the first-half of fixtures this season. So they have had to play a fair amount of catch-up. Just twice on home soil have Leicester been leading at the halftime break in the Premier League game. Boss Claude Puel will be the under even more pressure if they come up empty-handed in this game.

Crystal Palace News and Form

Palace are showing some good fight at the moment as they are unbeaten in their last three Premier League games, winning one of those. In their last away game, they played out a 1-1 draw at Southampton which leaves their away record for the term at W4 D2 L7. On their top-flight travels this season Crystal Palace have come up with 18 goals, which is exactly twice as many of what they have produced at home. That is not something that you see too often. 40% of Crystal Palace’s away games this season have ended up over 3.5 goals. Crystal Palace have taken a clean sheet in 31% of their away games. Palace have hit the back of the net in each of their last six away league fixtures. They have actually been leading at the halftime break in six of their 13 road games (D4 L3). Of Palace's away games, the second half appears to be where all the action is at. Palace have scored 61% of their away goals in the second period of fixtures, while they have conceded 73% of their away goals after the halftime break too.

Leicester v Crystal Palace Tips & Odds

Crystal Palace outright win at 12/5 Under 2.5 goals at 8/11 * (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on February 21st, 2019 at 3:27 p.m.)

Tottenham News and Form

Tottenham have overcome some injury adversaries with a great three-match winning streak in the league. Each of the wins in that small sequence were by a one-goal margin. Overall Tottenham have picked up a W8 L4 record at home in the top flight and this will be their third straight fixture at Wembley. Spurs have taken back to back home wins, having taken out Watford and Newcastle. That was important as they had lost their two previous home fixtures. 42% of Tottenham’s home league fixtures have ended up going over 3.5 goals this season. The Lilywhites have picked up a total of 21 goals, conceding 11 at home so far this term. They have earned a clean sheet in 33% of home fixtures, managing just the one in their last four though. Spurs seem to refuse to draw a league game this season, still not having been involved in one. Of the goals that they have given up on home soil, 64% of them have been in the second half of matches. Tottenham have scored the first goal in eight of their twelve home games and have been leading at the midway point in half of those. Son Heung Min has netted in back to back league games for them.

Leicester News and Form

Leicester put in a really good, positive performance last weekend, but could only come away with a 1-0 defeat against Manchester United. Leicester have earned only the one point in their last four league fixtures, that point coming from a draw against Liverpool. It has been one win in their last six games now from the former Premier League champions. Their overall away record this season in the top flight is W5 D3 L5. They have remained undefeated in their two away games against sides currently in the top four though, a victory at Chelsea along with their recent draw at Liverpool. Leicester have produced an average of 1.3 goals per game away from home this season. Only 38% of their away games have gone above the 2.5 goals line. The Foxes have put together a four-match scoring streak on the road though, so that is some kind of positive for them. Of the eleven losses that they have suffered so far this term, eight of them have been by just the one-goal margin. Leicester have scored 82% of their away goals in the second half of matches. Their defence has been good this season, with the Foxes currently boasting the fifth-best defensive record in the top flight.

Leicester v Manchester United Betting Tips - Premier League, 3rd February 2.05pm After falling behind at Anfield on Wednesday night, Leicester fought back to grab themselves a point which they will be happy with.

Leicester News and Form

The Foxes earned a great point for themselves at Liverpool on Wednesday night. They can be happy with that effort having fallen behind early in the fixture. That was also an important point for Foxes because they had lost their two previous league games. They do need to try and get some winning momentum going, that’s the one thing that they have been lacking. They have suffered back to back league defeats at home, going down by a one-goal margin against Cardiff and then Southampton. Overall this season Leicester have won just four home fixtures (D2 L5). Can they improve upon that as they play host to Manchester United on the weekend? Leicester have lost three of their last four home games. But in the one game that they didn’t lose in that sequence, the Foxes upset the odds in beating Manchester City. Less than half of Leicester’s home games this season in the top flight have made it over 2.5 goals, and that is because Leicester have been tight at the back. Leicester currently have the fifth-best defensive Premier League record this season. At the end of the day, they have to be disappointed with their home performances. But with a win over Man City and a good point against Liverpool recently, they have reason to be confident. 75% of Leicester's home goals have been conceded in the first half of matches.

Manchester United News and Form

Manchester United’s winning streak in the Premier League under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer came to an end on Tuesday night. They produced nothing more than an average, flat performance and had to fight their way back from 2-0 down at Old Trafford to earn a point against Burnley. United got their goals late in the game, just as they looked to be heading to defeat. It leaves them unbeaten in their last seven league games which is still nothing to be sneezed at. Manchester United have taken just one defeat in their last twelve league fixtures. So their home winning streak is over, but they have won their last three EPL away games. Overall this season Manchester United have a W6 D2 L4 away record. Manchester United have averaged just under 2 goals per away game this season. Over half of their road fixtures have ended over 3.5 goals. Manchester United have earned a clean sheet in their last two away games, something that they have been struggling with all season. In fact, they have just the three away clean sheets all term. Both teams have scored in 75% United’s games away from Old Trafford. United have scored in all 12 away games this season. They have conceded 63% of their away goals in the second half of matches.

Redknapp backed into 8/1 to be next Leicester manager

Football Betting
Harry Redknapp, who won the latest edition of I’m A Celebrity has been thrust into the limelight in potentially becoming the next Leicester manager. There has been mounting pressure on the current Foxes boss Claude Puel and within 24 hours, Redknapp had been slashed from 200/1 down to 8/1 to take over at the King Power Stadium* (betting odds taken from bet365 on January 19th, 2019 at 6:00 pm). That’s has left Redknapp as the third favourite to get the job done with only Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers and Burnley boss Sean Dyche shorter priced options. There has really been no link to support all of this support for Redknapp apart from the fact that he found himself back in the spotlight with his stint in the jungle.

Wolves News and Form

Wolves suffered a 3 -0 defeat at the Etihad against Manchester City last Monday. Their cause wasn't helped with Willy Bolly being sent off around the 20th minute. That loses leaves Wolves with back to back defeats in the top flight current. At Molineux, this season Wolves have posted a W4 D2 L5 record. Their last two played there have both ended in 2-0 losses, coming at Liverpool and then Crystal Palace. In total Wolves have come up with 12 home goals this season in the top flight. Just 27% of Wolves's home games have gone over 2.5 goals this season. There is a trend with each of their last three going under the goal line. Wolves have actually only come up with at least a goal in two of their last five Premier League home games. They have earned three clean sheets in their Premier League home campaign across the season. Of the goals which they have put on the board at Molineux, 83% of them have been after the halftime break. They have only been leading at half time in one of their home games this term. Wolves have netted the first goal in four of their eleven home games. Their opponents on the weekend Leicester are just one of five teams who have a better defensive record than Wolves.

Wolves v Leicester Head to Head

Leicester earned a 2-0 home win over Wolves earlier this season Wolves won their last home against the Foxes, a 2-1 win in the 2013 Championship Leicester are W2 D3 L1 in their last six against Wolves In three of the last of meetings, the home side has scored exactly two goals  
Key-Facts - Wolves v Leicester
  • Wolves have scored 83% of their home goals in the second half of games
  • Wolves have just the one win in their last six played against the Foxes
  • Leicester have won their last two EPL away games by a 1-0 scoreline
 

Leicester News and Form

There was a surprise result for Leicester last weekend as they tumbled to a 2-1 loss at the King Power against Southampton. That was a bit of a blow for them really in a game which they would have expected to have won. But they have taken a win in three of their last five Premier League games (L2). Out on their top-flight travels this season, Leicester are W5 D2 L4 and only 36% of Leicester’s away games this season have made it over 2.5 goals. Leicester have scored 13 and have conceded 13 goals on their travels so it is all evens with them. They have banked back to back away clean sheets though having taken 1-0 wins at Chelsea and then at Everton. So that’s a fantastic return away from home lately for Leicester. Leicester have lost just one of their last six away games in the top flight, winning three of those six. Each of their last six away games have ended under 2.5 goals so again, this does have the look of being a low scoring game. Just once away from home this season have Leicester been leading at the halftime break. Of the away goals that they have produced 85% of them have been after the halftime break. Only the current top five in the league have better away records than Leicester so they can be pretty proud of that. Also, the Foxes currently boast the fifth best defensive record in the Premier League.

Wolves v Leicester Tips & Odds

Under 2.5 goals at 4/7 Wolves 1-0 correct score at 11/2 * (betting odds taken from bet365 on January 17th, 2019 at 3:17 pm)

Wolves v Leicester Predictions

Wolves to win: There looks to be a decent chance of a home win turning up in this one. Leicester just are a little too unreliable to back with a great deal of confidence. So the value does appear to be on the home side in this one.

Leicester News and Form

Leicester got themselves a good away win at Everton to start of the new year on a positive note. That is actually three wins in their last four Premier League fixtures now (home and away combined). In their last Premier League home game they did suffer a bit of a shock as they lost 1-0 against Cardiff. Leicester are W4 D2 L4 on home soil in the EPL this season and they haven’t been a high-scoring side really, with 12 goals produced in their ten home fixtures. They have conceded an average of a goal against per fixture. Only 40% of their home games this season have ended over 2.5 goals. Across the course of the season at home Leicester have collected three clean sheets. They haven’t managed to get one in any of their last three Premier League home games. The Foxes have been level at half time in half of their home games (W2 L3). Of the goals that they have conceded at home 70% of them have been in the first period of matches. Just twice this season at the King Power in the top flight have Leicester actually opened the scoring.

Southampton News and Form

The Saints picked up a great point in a 0-0 draw at Chelsea on January 2nd. That has to be seen as a big point earned for them. It leaves Southampton with away form of W2 D2 L7 now after that. Southampton have produced only then 10 away goals, conceding a total of 21 on their travels. Because of their defensive woes, 36% of their away games this season have gone over 3.5 goals. Southampton have suffered six losses in their last eight road fixtures in the Premier League (W1 D1). They have earned a clean sheet in three road games this season and to be fair they have looked defensively better since new Ralph Hasenhuttl took over. Southampton have been level at half time in five of their away EPL fixtures. In just three away games, this season have Southampton opened the scoring in a fixture. Heading into the next weekend of action, they currently have the fourth-worst away record in the top flight. In total home and away Southampton have one clean sheet in eleven league outings

Newport v Leicester Predictions & Betting Odds – 6th January 2019

Leicester
Newport v Leicester Betting Tips - FA Cup, 6th January 4.30pm This is a good chance for Newport to test themselves against a former Premier League winner. The Welsh club get home ground advantage, but they have fallen out of form though. Will the Foxes be able to pull themselves through this tricky away game as strong favourites to do so? Read our predictions for Newport v Leicester.

Leicester 2/7 Draw 9/2 Newport 9/1 * (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on 3rd January 2019 at 11:43 p.m.) [bbutton bookmaker="bet365"] [toc heading_levels="2"]

Newport v Leicester Preview

This will be the first time that Newport will have played host to Leicester and this is a great fixture for the Welsh club. The Exiles aren’t in the greatest of form at the moment as they are winless in four games. They have only managed to get the one win in their last seven games actually. They got to the third round of after seeing off fellow Welsh side Wrexham in a second-round replay. That was after they had eased to a 2-0 win at non-league Met Police. Their form at home this season is pretty good it is worth noting. At Rodney Parade, Newport have suffered the one defeat in their last nine played. They have bagged a clean sheet in four of their last six on home soil as well have the Exiles. Leicester have won three of their last four games (L1), the wins in that sequence being against Chelsea, Man City and then away at Everton on New Year’s Day. So it’s not been all that bad at all from them. The one defeat that they took in that sequence was something of a poor loss out at Cardiff. It’s now back to Wales in the FA Cup for them. But the Foxes have won their last two on the road and are W3 D2 L1 in their last six on the road. Each of the last three away wins that Leicester have taken have been by a 1-0 scoreline. None of their last six away games have gone over 2.5 goals. They haven’t been their usual prolific selves in front of goal so the scoreline may be kept down in this one. Last season the Foxes made it through to the quarterfinals. They have a favourable draw to at least get this season’s campaign up and running well.

Newport v Leicester Predictions

Leicester to win: We are going to back Leicester to win to nil at 6/5 odds* (betting odds taken from bet365 on January 3rd, 2019 at 10:08 pm). They have not given too much away on the road this season and they should send a fairly strong lineup out for this.
