Leicester City vs Watford predictions for Sunday’s Premier League fixture at the King Power Stadium.

Read on for our free predictions and betting tips.

Leicester City vs Watford key stats

  • Jamie Vardy has failed to score in his last four Premier League matches. However, he has scored in his last three home matches versus Watford, all from the penalty spot.
  • In 20 top division matches versus Leicester, Watford have never kept a clean sheet. This is the longest streak in top-flight history.
  • Leicester’s Premier League matches have averaged 3.08 goals per game so far, with over 2.5 goals coming in 67% of the time.
  • In every one of Watford’s four Premier League wins so far, they have scored at least three goals.

Foxes winless in three

After a crushing 3-0 home defeat to Chelsea last Saturday, Leicester got back to winning ways in the Europa League versus Legia Warsaw which should restore some confidence.

James Maddison who has made two substitute appearances in the league since returning from injury also started against Legia and scored before coming off on 62 minutes. This could see him primed to start this one and possibly help chip in with some well needed goals.

This looks to be a tough test for Leicester as Watford will be buoyant after their win last week, but Leicester will need to beat the likes of Watford to ensure they don’t fall too far off the pace.

Watford strike the final blow

In an unbelievable game at Vicarage Road last Saturday, Watford defeated Manchester United 4-1 which led to the sacking of United head coach, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Claudio Ranieri, who returns to the King Power where he miraculously guided Leicester to the 2015/16 Premier League trophy, should be quietly confident of getting a result here. In his six games against Leicester, he has gained 13 points from a possible 18.

Wingers Ismaila Saar, Emmanuel Dennis and striker Josh King were all on the scoresheet versus United, and similar will be needed if they are to come away from Leicester with any points.

Leicester City vs Watford predictions

This game should see plenty of goals. Leicester have never allowed Watford a clean sheet in the top-flight, Leicester games average over three goals per game and over 2.5 goals comes in two-thirds of the time. Due to this we predict over 2.5 goals in the match.

Watford will also be on the highest of highs after their win last week and while an actual result might be hard to predict, we believe they will have enough firepower to score – as will Leicester – therefore we predict that both teams will score.
