Leicester vs Watford Prediction

With their winning streak on the line, Leicester showed grit in finding the winner at home against Everton in the 90+4th minute, the last match-day. The final scoreline was 2-1, in favor of the Foxes.

Meanwhile, Watford continued with their dismal run, as they lost on the road after leading for the majority of the game, the previous game week. Two late goals by Southampton had reversed the scorecard to 2-1 at the end of ninety minutes.

This Wednesday, consider that Leicester are the second-best team in the competition, behind Liverpool, and are determined to repeat their heroics of the 2015-16 season. The team is on a winning streak of seven games and had won 13 of their previous 15 matches as well.

In fact, this whole season, the Foxes have lost just against Liverpool once, and on another occasion, against Manchester United. Keep note that both these defeats had come on the road.

At home, disregarding their opening-day draw against Wolves, Leicester have won every single game.

Meanwhile, Watford are placed dead-last in the table and are easily the worst team in the contest. Moreover, they remain the only squad yet to touch the 10-point mark, and also remain the only team yet to score ten goals.

On top of all these, they are on the road this match-day.

Going on, consider how Leicester have controlled and dominated previous h2h clashes, especially at their home.

In fact, the Foxes have won eight of the last ten such meetings at this venue, and have lost just twice in, since 1999.

Taking into account all these factors, expect the hosts Leicester to post another huge win, reminding everyone of their triumph against Southampton.
