In the 20th round of the Premier League, Leicester City visit Watford.

The Foxes are looking to confirm their recent positive result with a draw with Manchester United and a further rise in the standings.

Leicester have 27 points in eighth place after seven wins, six draws and defeats.

On the other hand, Watford seeks to overcome its negative results especially as it suffered 4 consecutive losses and has 22 points in tenth place.

Leicester vs Watford Preview

Under-23 coach Hayden Mullins will lead the Hornets this week as the club search for their third manager of what has been a torrid season.

Nine goals scored in 14 games goes some way to explaining why the side already find themselves six points from safety, while their record of 28 goals conceded further underlines Watford’s problems.

Their opponents meanwhile have been firing on all cylinders and their tremendous strike rate in the final third has seen Leicester score at least twice in each of their last six home league games.

That record should continue against a side who are conceding on average two goals a game.

MATCH INFO

Start date: 04. Dec 2019, 21:30

Location: Leicester 

Venue: King Power Stadium

Referee: Craig Pawson, England

Competition: Premier League

Kick-off: 7:30 PM (UK time).

Leicester are priced at just 1.36 to score over 1.5 goals, but if we combine that with a goal to be scored in both halves the price rises to a more attractive 1.75.

This selection has paid out in five of Leicester’s last six home league matches and looks a solid option for this midweek clash.
