PREDICTION
Neither Leicester nor Watford come into this game in the best of form with both clubs having won just once in their last six Premier League outings. With 8th playing host to 10th this Saturday, there is not a great deal between them at present. That said, Watford have not been the same since Everton’s interest in their manager Marco Silva with a string of abject performances as of late and that is something that Leicester will look to take full advantage of this weekend.

MEMORABLE MEETING
April 2011 saw the two sides face off at what was then called the Walkers Stadium and it would be Leicester who came out on top in what was a very entertaining fixture - one which produced no fewer than six goals. It was a day of braces as Marvin Sordell scored twice for the visiting Watford side, but he would be outdone by Leicester’s Jeffrey Bruma and Yakubu who also got two goals each to make sure that the Foxes outwitted the Hornets by four goals to two.
