Watford face Leicester City at Vicarage Road on Saturday, June 20. Here’s all the info you need to watch the Premier League match.
For the first time in three months, Watford and Leicester will play a Premier League game. With the season resuming, Watford find themselves fighting for their Premier League survival. The Hornets are 17th in the table level on points with West Ham and Bournemouth. Leicester City are fighting for a Champions League spot. The Foxes were great before the coronavirus suspension, sitting third in the table with 53 points.
One of the main reasons that Watford are in the relegation battle is their lack of goal scoring. Only three clubs have scored fewer goals than the Hornets this season. If they are going to avoid relegation for a fifth straight season, they will need to find a way to generate goals. Troy Deeney and Ismaila Sarr have combined for 11 of the club’s 27 goals this season. The loss of Gerard Deulofeu to a knee injury has been a tough loss to overcome. Deulofeu was playing well before suffering an injury. Watford will have to find another scoring option if they are going to avoid relegation.
Leicester have been one of the best teams all season. The Foxes have scored more goals than every other team except for Liverpool and Manchester City. The 25 goals Leicester City have conceded are the third-fewest. A win on Saturday will further cement Leicester’s spot in the top four. The Foxes are eight points ahead of fifth-place Manchester United and are looking to clinch a spot in the Champions League for the first time since they won the Premier League in 2016. Jamie Vardy has been excellent this season, scoring a team-best 19 goals. Vardy will lead the attack against the Hornets.
