Watford cannot afford to keep slipping up

Expect positive approach from Leicester

Watford's Abdoulaye Doucoure
1 of 1

Kick-off 3pm Tuesday

Watford are still in the top half of the Premier League table but the Hornets cannot afford many more slips if they are to avoid the scrap at the bottom after losing four matches in a row.

Marco Silva's team would have expected to have got something from games against Burnley, Crystal Palace, Huddersfield and Brighton and he will be concerned that they have conceded a whopping 20 goals in their nine home matches.

The Hornets still possess a threat up front and it seems realistic to expect goals from the visit of Leicester, who showed their resilience in gaining a dramatic point against Manchester United on Saturday.

The Foxes are unlikely to sit back and five of their last six matches have featured at least three goals. 

Recommendation
Over 2.5 goals
