Leicester – Statistics & Current Form
Ever since Leicester City unexpectedly became English champion in the 2015/16 season, it has become increasingly quiet around the Foxes.
Success coach Claudio Ranieri was dismissed in the following season due to lack of success in the league, although the troupe after all had progressed to the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
Since then, four coaches have been trying to get the foxes back to the top or at least a starting place for an international competition. All without success. Not one of them was allowed to work for an entire season from start to finish.
Most recently, Brendan Rodgers took over for Mike Stowell in February this year. And this should probably be the decisive fifth change, which then brought the turn.
The former LFC manager led the club not only at the end of the season still in ninth place, but then also mixed the transfer market. Converted slightly more than 100 million euros, the 46-year-old was allowed to invest, with only the sale of Harry Maguire to Manchester United almost all the money for it in the coffers.
Measures that have done well in terms of form, because it is now running again for the Foxes, despite the departure of their defensive chief, the best defensive put the Premier League – and by far. Only nine goals conceded in 14 league games are absolute top, especially since Leicester has played against offensively powerful opponents like Liverpool, Chelsea and Tottenham.
That at Leicester against Watford the odds turn out so much in the direction of the Rodgers troupe, is also because it offensively went very well. 33 goals scored the Foxes second highest in Manchester City, with much of the hit coming from awe-inspiring 9/05 away win at Southampton on 25 October.
Leicester are already three points clear of reigning champions Manchester City, positioning them as the main pursuers for high-flying Liverpool FC, who are eight points behind despite ten wins from 14 games and only two defeats of the season.
Nevertheless: The direction is clear these days in the direction of return to the premier class, which is why the home game against the current bottom of the table, of course, a compelling victory. Of course, the fans hope once again for their long-running Jamie Vardy, who also leads the current top scorers list of the Premier League with 13 goals.
And at least: The home record at King Power Stadium is something to be proud of, because here the Foxes have left nothing to be desired in only one draw so far and with only four goals conceded 19 out of 21 possible points.

Watford – Statistics & Current Form
Ironically, those initially named Troy Deeney – still captain of the Hornets today – will miss this away game at King Power Stadium after his knee surgery. The rest of the squad is fully available to the coach, who will be on the sideline on Wednesday night.
Who that will be is not clear at the time of writing. The only thing that is clear is that neither Javi Gracia, who was released in September, nor his successor, Quique Flores, who was fired for the second time as head coach of the Hornets two days ago after 2016.
“The appointment of a new head coach is imminent, and with nearly two-thirds of the season remaining, we will provide all the necessary support to make the months ahead successful.” – Scott Duxbury
His meager yield: Only one win from ten league games in the Premier League and a cut of 0.83 points per game. Finally, there was in the groundbreaking basement duel at Southampton FC even a further 1: 2 defeat. The distance to the saving bank is therefore already six meters.
What’s stopping Leicester from giving Watford a tip on the Hornets is the incredibly tame offensive by the Sir Elton John club. Watford FC have scored nine league goals in the Premier League’s nine league games.
Although more than half of these goals are away games with five goals, now a currently coachless team has to compete in the second place of the league, leaving at home almost nothing.
The more likely that co-coach Juan Carlos Oliva at least for this away game takes the scepter in the hand, of which, however, no system change would be expected. In short: a point win the Hornets in the Foxes would be a small sensation with all the problems of the team.
Best scorers in the league:
🥇 Gerard Deulofeu (2 goals)
🥇 Andre Gray (2 goals)
Expected formation of Watford:
↪ Foster – Holebas – Masina – Mariappa – Cathcart – Femenia – Caoue – Hughes – Doucouré – Deulofeu – Sarr
