Looking to end their seven-game winless run in the Premier League, Watford play host to Leicester City at the Vicarage Road Stadium on Sunday.

The Foxes, meanwhile, head into the game fresh off the back of ending their run of seven games without a win and will look to keep the juggernaut rolling.

Watford snapped their losing streak last Wednesday as they held out for a goalless draw with relegation battlers Everton.

Prior to that, the Hornets were on a run of six straight defeats, conceding 15 goals and scoring three in that time.

Watford have already been relegated to the Championship as they sit 19th in the league standings after picking up 23 points from 36 games.

Leicester City, meanwhile, returned to winning ways last time out when they edged out Norwich City 3-0 on home turf.

Prior to that, the Foxes were on a seven-game winless run in all competitions, picking up three games and losing four in that time.

With 45 points from 35 games, Leicester City are currently 10th in the EPL table, albeit with one game in hand.
