Leicester vs Watford prediction

High-flying Leicester City welcome bottom of the table Watford to the King Power Stadium on Wednesday.

The Foxes are currently riding a club record six-game Premier League winning streak before facing a side with just one win from their first 14 games this season.

Jamie Vardy heads into the midweek fixtures as the league’s top scorer with 13 goals – three more than any other player. The striker has been banging the goals in ever since Brendan Rodgers took charge in the second half of last season.

Leicester have other goal scorers in their team in Ayoze Perez, James Maddison, Youri Tielemans and even Ricardo Pereira from right-back. Watford conceded two goals at Southampton over the weekend and three at home to Burnley before that. You can expect the hosts on Wednesday night to put a couple past them too.

Quique Flores Sanchez was dismissed as Hornets boss on Sunday, so Watford Under-23s coach Hayden Mullins will be in charge for this game. The former Crystal Palace, West Ham and Portsmouth midfielder has no senior management experience.

A Leicester City win has to be the certainty of the week.
