The Foxes have a healthy cushion over fifth place right now and Brendan Rodgers’ men will be desperate to keep it that way as we enter the final nine Premier League fixtures of the campaign.

Leicester beat Watford 2-0 in the reverse fixture back in December and have rarely been threatened by the Vicarage Road club.

With 27 points up for grabs between now and the end of the season, Watford know they need a fast start to the return if they are to pull away from the drop zone.

With no home crowd for support, boss Nigel Pearson will have to hope he can inspire his men to at least a point in this tricky encounter for the hosts.

Watford v Leicester team news

Watford: Many teams have benefitted from the three-month coronavirus break to lead players back to fitness, but Watford still have major issues. Gerard Deulofeu and Daryl Janmaat are out, while Adam Masina, Roberto Pereyra and Craig Cathcart have all had issues recently.

The good news for the Hornets is that Danny Welbeck is back to full fitness after a stop-start campaign and his goals could be crucial in the season run-in.

Leicester: Rodgers has a near-fully fit squad to choose from ahead of Saturday’s trip.

Danny Amartey and Ricardo Pereira are still out, while Ayoze Perez may miss this clash due to a muscle problem. Expect Jamie Vardy to be full of running on this first game back in action.

Our prediction: Watford v Leicester

Had Leicester not won the title in 2016 we’d be lauding them for a sublime season this term. As it is, the fact the Foxes sit third in the Premier League has attracted far less adulation than they have deserved.

Rodgers’ men controlled the action when these sides met in December and we may well see a repeat performance.

Watford’s injury issues are a concern and their ‘home advantage’ barely counts for anything here. Expect the Foxes to come out fast in this early kick-off.

Our prediction: Watford 0-2 Leicester
