WAT Vs LEI Dream 11 Prediction: Watford Vs Leicester City. A crucial encounter awaits today’s opponents albeit for different reasons.
For Watford, defeating league leaders Liverpool 3-0 was undoubtedly the highest point of their season. The display came out of nothing, a performance in the midst of a horrendous losing spree which has seen the club be embroiled in the regulation battle this season.
It was a performance which sent ripples across the showpiece league, a performance which saw Liverpool’s designs of going unbeaten this season fall flat on their face. It was an accomplishment much hailed, a performance deserving of all the laurels owing to the manner in which the relegation slumped side completely wiped the floor with Liverpool.
However, the result did leave a larger impact on Watford with the side reverting to losing ways immediately after the result. The side fell to a 1-0 defeat to Crystal Palace in its last outing before the league was halted, a result which left them lingering right next to the relegation zone.
Winless in four encounters in the league, Leicester City’s 4-0 win right before the league break off was a much needed one. The result brought them right in the mix for a spot in the top 4, a performance which emoted towards the side’s emphatic brand of attacking football.
It’s a performance they’ll be looking to emulate against a defensively weakened Watford side, a match we see swinging in the visiting side’s favour.
