It’s hard to be scientific about these things, but there’s a fair chance that Watford would be comfortably mid-table in the Premier League if they had started the 2019/20 campaign with Nigel Pearson in charge.

Team news | League Table | Odds

Pearson is the third person to manage the Hornets this season and he’s comfortably outshone Javi Gracia and Quique Sanchez-Flores, although the club still found themselves in seventeenth place going into lockdown and they’re now in a scrap to stay up.

There are nine games remaining and twenty-seven points up for grabs, with Pearson likely to show his players a replay of that fantastic 3-0 win over Liverpool where they outplayed the champions-elect, even if it was followed by a 1-0 defeat at Crystal Palace.

Only Everton have won at Vicarage Road since Pearson took charge and the Yorkshireman squares off against one of his former clubs for this clash, with Leicester City having been steered into the top flight by the same manager who laid the foundations for their amazing 2016 title success.

Now Brendan Rodgers is aiming to steer the Foxes back to the Champions League and it would be a major surprise if they slipped out of the top four considering that the cushion is currently eight points.

Leicester have won 50% of their fourteen away matches this season and their most previous result was a 4-0 spanking of Aston Villa, illustrating how dangerous they can be from an attacking point-of-view.

Jamie Vardy remains the top scorer in the division and will be looking to bolster his tally of nineteen goals, with Harvey Barnes probably the stand out player before the break.

However, Leicester were definitely in more of a groove at the beginning of the 2019/20 season and we’re not sure they should be such strong favourites to beat stubborn opponents.

Watford are a capable team who have struggled to recover from a dismal first half of the season although they look able to get at least a draw from this match and possibly even more in their quest to stay up.
