THE PREDICTION

This promises to be one of the more appealing games of the weekend with plenty on the line for both of these sides. Watford have given themselves an outstanding chance of survival under Nigel Pearson but they need to keep it going. Leicester will be keen to improve after dropping off a little in the last couple of weeks before the break. The likes of Jamie Vardy and co will have benefitted from the break after struggling with various ailments prior to the break and Leicester’s extra quality in the attacking third could be the difference between the two teams.
