Watford v Leicester City Preview, Premiership, Saturday 5th March 2016

Watford have had a good season so far and look certain to avoid relegation as they are 13pts clear of the bottom three and with home advantage the hosts will be confident of putting a real dent into Leicester City’s title hopes.

Leicester City would of been very disappointed with their 2-2 draw last weekend against West Bromwich Albion, but with their main rivals all losing during midweek, they are now right back in pole position to win the league title and I fully expect them to go into this game with all guns blazing.

Watford Team News:

The hosts have almost a full squad available for this game but will continue to be without the services of Ekstrand (hamstring) and Jurado (calf). Ighalo and Deeney who have been prolific up front this season will lead the Watford attack.

Leicester City Team News:

The visitors also have almost a full squad for this game but will be without the services of Kante (hamstring) and James (knee). Jamie Vardy will spearhead the Leicester City attack up front alongside Okazaki with support in behind being provided by Mahrez and Albrighton.

Watford v Leicester City Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

Watford certainly have it in them to cause what would be a huge upset in this game as they have definitely raised more than a few eyebrows this season with their performances and have made a mockery of the hype surrounding them as one of the clear favourites to be relegated this season.

However, Leicester City will have seen Arsenal, Spurs and Manchester City drop points midweek with all three clubs having been beaten and the ball is definitely back on Leicester City’s court and most people will be expecting the visitors to raise their game to win this match on Saturday evening.

Onto some predictions then and my Banker Free Tip for this match is going to be for Leicester City to Win as for me they have much more to play for than their hosts and with a stronger squad than Watford, I am expecting the visitors to take full advantage of their rivals dropped points midweek.

My First Goalscorer Free Tip will be Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy to open up the scoring for his side as he been in exceptional for this season which has attracted the attention of the England manager and he can once again become a real hero to his fans by firing his side in front in this game.
