Leicester vs Watford
Leicester City are currently locked in Premier League action with Watford.
The Foxes headed into the game languishing in midtable after a fairly uninspiring start to the 2021/22 campaign, which had seen them lose five and draw three of their first 12 Premier League outings of the season.
As for Watford, they have received something of a managerial bounce following the arrival of Claudio Ranieri. However, the Hornets are still fairly close to the relegation zone and started Sunday sat 16th in the league.
And, on Sunday, it looks set to be Brendan Rodgers and co. who come away with the win.
An enthralling first 45 played out at the King Power, which saw Leicester score three and Watford one.
