    Leicester are unbeaten in seven successive away matches in the Premier League, and already have three points more on the road than in the entirety of last season.

    Harry Maguire's stoppage-time equaliser against Manchester United on Saturday left Jose Mourinho chastising his team, while 10-man Leicester enjoyed what felt like a minor victory.

    They head south unbeaten in the last seven on the road and already have more points away from home than in the whole of last season.

    In contrast, Watford's form appears to have fallen off a cliff in recent weeks. Saturday's 1-0 reverse at Brighton was their fourth defeat in a row and they have only taken one point from the last 18 available.

    For all the signs of progress, their current total of 22 points is exactly the same as at this stage last year.

    Watford's poor run continued with their defeat at Brighton on Saturday, and they have now taken only one point from their last six matches.

    Leicester deserve some credit for the way they kept going to get a point against Manchester United, who should have been home and hosed against them.

    I am going with the Foxes to win this one. Jamie Vardy has started scoring again, and he could make the difference here.

  4. Okazak-in

    Watford v Leicester (15:00 GMT)


    Watford make three changes from the 1-0 defeat by Brighton. Defender Molla Wague makes only his second appearance for the club, while Marvin Zeegelaar and Abdoulaye Doucoure return from bans.

    Sebastian Prodl, Jose Holebas and Andre Gray are all benched, while Troy Deeney remains suspended.


    There are four changes from the Leicester side who drew 2-2 with Manchester United. Shinji Okazaki is back in the team, while Andy King, Ben Chilwell and Aleksandar Dragovic all start.

    Danny Simpson, who has a hamstring injury, Christian Fuchs, Vicente Iborra and Demarai Gray drop out.

  5. Ho ho Hornets

    Watford v Leicester (15:00 GMT)

    Boxing Day - a day for eating Christmas leftovers, chocolates and having a few drinks.

    Unless you're a sports journalist, in which case it's a day of staying sober and coming into the office so you can write a live text commentary and match report of Watford v Leicester.
