Our prediction for this Championship match:
Watford take on Leicester City at their Vicarage Road in what is expected to be one of the most interesting games of Saturday’s program. The Hornets have not been stinging well in recent weeks, with the team losing to Cardiff City in the Championship, while suffering elimination in the FA Cup to Southampton. Given their five-game winless run in all competitions, home win should not be considered. Both Edo Kayembe and Jeremy Ngakia are injured for the home team.
The Foxes, on the other hand, are eager to retain top position in the standings. The league leaders proved their worth in back-to-back wins over Swansea City and Stoke City and we predict that they are going to give fans yet another reason to celebrate this weekend. Midfielder Wilfred Ndidi is sidelined with injury, but he should be the only absentee in the visiting team.
Highlighted Player (Jamie Vardy):
Spending his early career playing no-league football, Jamie Vardy made the headlines when he joined Leicester City in a £1 million deal in 2012, but little did he know that he would go on to become a genuine Premier League star just three years later.
The experienced forward helped the Foxes gain promotion to the elite division and then score more than 20 goals as they mounted an unlikely title bid, earning worldwide acclaim as well as a place in the England squad. Vardy went on to score his first two goals for the Three Lions in March 2016 friendlies, with his back-heel goal against Germany in Berlin seeing him instantly become a fans’ favourite.
Over the years, Vardy has earned a reputation as a striker who never gives up and can be a real menace for opposition defenders, but his excellent goalscoring record and good link-up play are enough to suggest he can be described as a mix of old-style pacey forwards and modern strikers.
