Tip Reasoning

  • Watford have scored in four of their last six home games but have only kept one clean sheet at Vicarage Road all season.
  • Leicester have conceded in eight of their last ten away games.
  • Two of Watford’s last three home matches have ended in 2-1 defeats.

Hornets heading down with a whimper

Watford ended a run of six successive defeats in midweek but a goalless draw with relegation-threatened Everton is hardly anything to get excited about and they could be in for a final dose of Vicarage Road misery on Sunday before heading back to the Championship.

The Hornets have won just two Premier League home games all season and the last of these came back in November, with that shock 4-1 win over Manchester United being followed by 11 defeats and one draw, although it is worth noting they have scored in four of their last six home assignments.

Leicester look for strong end to the season

Leicester ended a winless run of their own on Wednesday as they comfortably beat Norwich 3-0 and Brendan Rodgers will be expecting more of the same, even if his Foxes side have nothing left to play for.

Heading into the summer on a high will be Rodgers’ main objective now and victory over Watford would go a long way to achieving that, although I don’t think the visitors will have it all their own way.

Goals on the cards at Vicarage Road

Leicester haven’t kept a clean sheet in any of their last eight competitive away games so Watford should at least trouble their defence, although with just one home clean sheet all season I certainly expect the visitors to hit back and backing both teams to score looks a good option.

Two of Watford’s last three home games have ended in 2-1 defeats and Leicester’s last two wins away from home have seen them score exactly twice, so I’m also opting for a 2-1 win for the away side as my correct score prediction.

Watford predicted lineup: Foster; Ngakia, Kabasele, Samir, Masina; Sissoko, Kayembe, Gosling; Kalu, Pedro, Sema

Leicester predicted lineup: Schmeichel; Castagne, Evans, Soyuncu, Justin; Dewsbury-Hall, Tielemans, Albrighton, Maddison, Barnes; Vardy

  • Watford have lost 11 of their last 12 Premier League home games
  • Five of the last seven of Leicester’s Premier League games have produced three goals or more
