Watford Eye First Win At Leicester In Eight Years

Watford Eye First Win At Leicester In Eight Years

Leicester City will welcome Watford to the King Power stadium in Sunday’s Premier League fixture.

Four Nigerians are expected to be in action for both teams, Kelechi Iheanacho and Wilfred Ndidi for Leicester while William Troost-Ekong and Emmanuel Dennis for Watford.


Dennis was key for Watford in their 4-1 win against Manchester United, scoring one goal and providing two assists. It was his fourth goal in 11 league games.

Troost-Ekong, who has also made 11 appearances, was brought on to help contain the United forwards led by Cristiano Ronaldo.

Iheanacho will be hoping to get his second goal in the top-tier of English football this season after 11 outings and Ndidi will be targeting his nine fixture.


However, the duo of Dennis and Troost-Ekong and their teammates will have a lot to do against Iheanacho and Ndidi as Watford have not beaten Leicester away from home in the league since April 2013.

They suffered a 2-0 defeat on their last trip to the King Power Stadium in December 2019.

Watford will enter Sunday’s clash with Leicester off the back of a huge 4-1 victory over Manchester United last weekend, which led to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer losing his job as head coach of the Red Devils.

Claudio Ranieri’s side are actually only three points off the top half of the table and will be desperate to put another victory on the board ahead of back-to-back home fixtures against Chelsea and Manchester City.

For Leicester there is no getting away from the fact that the Foxes have struggled for form this term.

Indeed, a record of four wins, three draws and five defeats from 12 matches has brought them 15 points, which is only good enough for 12th position heading into the next set of fixtures in England’s top flight.

The FA Cup holders have not been victorious in the league since overcoming Brentford on October 24, picking up just a point from their last three games against Arsenal, Leeds United and Chelsea.
