Team News

  • Valerien Ismael is set to revert back to the starting XI that faced Cardiff with the only change being the introduction of Emmanuel Dennis.
  • Daniel Bachmann suffered a concussion during Watford's midweek FA Cup fixture and will therefore be absent from the squad here.
  • Enzo Maresca could make one change to the side that beat Stoke 5-0 with James Justin replacing Callum Doyle at left-back.
  • Harry Souttar is available following Australia's exit from the Asian Cup, but Kelechi Iheanacho is still on international duty with Nigeria.


  • Watford were unable to produce a response against Cardiff last weekend with Josh Bowler's first-half strike proving enough to condemn the Hornets to defeat in the league.
  • A midweek FA Cup defeat against Championship rivals Southampton will do little to improve the home side's mood ahead of a testing clash on Saturday.
  • Leicester were at their unstoppable best last weekend, scoring five times on their visit to the bet365 Stadium as they hammered Stoke 5-0 on the road.
  • Back-to-back wins mean that the away side have maintained their cushion over second-placed Southampton, while Enzo Maresca's side are now 12 points clear of Leeds in third.
