Premier League 
3pm Saturday

The teams with the worst defensive records in the top half go head-to-head at the King Power Stadium and they are likely to produce an entertaining, high-scoring game.

Leicester have had a strong last three months but it is worth remembering that they lost 2-1 at Watford in December despite taking the lead.

Watford are hanging onto tenth place by their fingertips after a really poor run of ten defeats in 15 games but they will feel a lot happier after a strong second-half showing in last Saturday's 2-2 draw at home to Southampton.
