Claudio Ranieri and Watford put the final nail in the coffin of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s reign as Manchester United boss, infuriating neutrals across the country, but they will not want to celebrate that 4-1 rout for too long, as FA Cup holders Leicester City lie in wait this weekend, fresh from a big Europa League win.

It would seem that Watford only do entertaining wins, filled with lots of goals and drama. Their four triumphs this season have been 3-2 over Aston Villa, 3-1 against Norwich, that 5-2 battering of Everton and now a famous Vicarage Road humiliation of Man Utd, but it’s consistency that the Hornets currently lack.

Leicester meanwhile will be welcoming Ranieri back to the King Power with open arms after the Italian famously secured the Premier League title in 2016 against all expectations. The revered Roman will receive a percussive and warm reception from the terraces, but once the whistle goes, sentimentality will go with it.

This current incarnation of Leicester under Brendan Rodgers have continued to produce wonders after Ranieri’s reign, winning last season’s FA Cup, but in the Premier League this term momentum has eluded them, with the Foxes currently winless in three and in the bottom half of the table.

Leicester vs Watford: Match Stats

Emmanuel Dennis executed a coup de grace on Man Utd last week, putting the gloss on that 4-1 win before darting away and taking his shirt off in celebration, collecting an obligatory booking as a result which, incredibly, was his sixth yellow card of the season, more than any other player in the Premier League so far.

Leicester meanwhile boast their own headline-grabber in Jamie Vardy. The veteran sharpshooter has netted in each of his last three Premier League home games against Watford, with all three of those goals coming from the penalty spot. He will certainly fancy his chances of causing chaos in the box this weekend.
