Leicester City vs Watford Match Preview
Watford’s managerial merry-go-round continues apace and Hayden Mullins takes charge of them in this game following a ninth change of coach in less than six years.
Quique Sanchez Flores was sacked by the Hornets for the second time on Sunday after a 2-1 defeat at fellow strugglers Southampton left them three points adrift at the bottom of the Premier League table.
Mullins steps up from the Under-23s to the first team temporarily until someone else occupies the hottest of hotseats, with the bookmakers’ favourites at the time of writing on Tuesday morning being Mark Hughes, Chris Hughton, Sam Allardyce and Quique Setien.
Leicester, meanwhile, very much hope they will not be seeking a new manager any time soon as Brendan Rodgers is being linked strongly with Arsenal, while it is not beyond the realms of possibility that Manchester United may also come calling given the superb job he is doing with the Foxes.
The champions of four seasons ago are now clearly the closest pursuers to runaway leaders Liverpool after sustaining their momentum with a last-gasp 2-1 home win against Everton on Sunday which made it a magnificent seven straight league and cup victories.
Unless Mullins can galvanise the Watford players to a greater extent than his two predecessors this term, this really should be another decisive Leicester success that keeps Liverpool just about within their sight.
