Leicester City kicked off April with back-to-back wins over Stoke City and Sunderland, hardly something to get too excited about perhaps but nevertheless two much-needed wins which propelled the Foxes away from the bottom three at a crucial stage of the campaign. They followed this with a five-game winless run but given that four of these matches were against excellent opposition one could forgive Craig Shakespeare’s men for this apparent slump in form.
Indeed whilst Leicester went down 4-2 at Goodison Park earlier in the month, their 2-1 aggregate defeat to Atletico Madrid in the Champions League quarter-finals was no disgrace in the slightest and following a 2-2 draw at an improved Crystal Palace in the Premier League, Arsenal could only manage to beat the Foxes at the Emirates Stadium through an unfortunate 86th minute own-goal.
Shakespeare’s men halted this winless run by winning at West Bromwich Albion in their last outing and with just a single point keeping the side out of the top-half of the Premier League table, we believe that they can keep up the pressure on the teams above them by collecting all three points against Watford at the King Power Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
As for the Hornets, they have suffered defeat in all-but-one of their last four Premier League games with their away form making pretty grim reading with a mere twelve points taken from a possible 48. Indeed with the visitors scoring just a solitary goal in their last four outings, we’ll be going for a Leicester City win-to-nil at odds of 17/10 with Boylesports.
