They will have to do without Gerard Deulofeu for the remainder of the season with him being injured but Daryl Janmaat is the only other absentee, other than that Nigel Pearson has a fully fit squad to choose from and they do pose a threat when Troy Deeney and Ismaila Sarr are both in action.
There’s a visible upturn in performance when the duo are involved from the start and of the available players they both rank in the top two for shots taken for Watford, highlighting their importance at the top of the pitch.
Leicester have attacking threats of their own, of course. Jamie Vardy is on course to be the top scorer in the league and with the likes of Harvey Barnes, James Maddison, Youri Tielemans and Ayoze Perez supporting him there’s a strong armoury of forwards for Brendan Rodgers to supplement him with.
The Foxes are 8 points clear of 5th place and should qualifying for the champions league which would be a great achievement, they’ll want to get it secured sooner rather than later though.
I do fancy a few goals here and over 1 goal looks a good place to start for the betbuilder, 77% of combined games of both teams have seen two or more goals scored.
I’ll also take each team to register over 2 corners, I’m looking at the dangerous wide players for both and the tight pitch at Vicarage Road being conducive to corners, both average around 5 corners for and against and both teams will want to take something from the game.
The final angle is Watford to collect over 1 card. The Hornets are the third highest team for cards received in the league, averaging over 2.3 cautions per game and with a lot on the line in the fight against relegation it wouldn’t be a surprise to see them pick up a couple of cards, especially with the likes of Jose Holebas and Etienne Capoue likely to play.
