Leicester were expected to again challenge for a top-four spot in the Premier League this season and that could still be the case, but there is no getting away from the fact that the Foxes have struggled for form this term.
Indeed, a record of four wins, three draws and five defeats from 12 matches has brought them 15 points, which is only good enough for 12th position heading into the next set of fixtures in England’s top flight.
The FA Cup holders have not been victorious in the league since overcoming Brentford on October 24, picking up just a point from their last three games against Arsenal, Leeds United and Chelsea.
Brendan Rodgers‘s side did manage to pick up a huge three points in the Europa League on Thursday night, though, with a 3-1 success over Legia Warsaw moving them to the top of Group C.
Leicester now have three straight league games against Watford, Southampton and Aston Villa before a trip to Napoli in the Europa League, and they will be desperate to move closer to the European positions.
Leicester will be missing Wesley Fofana, Youri Tielemans, Ricardo Pereira and James Justin this weekend through injury, but Jonny Evans is expected to feature despite concerns over a thigh problem.
The team is expected to be similar to the one that took to the field for the first whistle against Legia Warsaw on Thursday, but Marc Albrighton and Jamie Vardy could return in attack.
James Maddison was only a substitute in the defeat to Chelsea last weekend but impressed in the Europa League, and he is expected to retain his spot in the XI for the clash with the Hornets.
As for Watford, Ranieri revealed on Friday that both Sarr and Nicolas Nkoulou will be absent due to the injuries that they picked up in the win over Man United last weekend.
Christian Kabasele, Ken Sema, Francisco Sierralta, Kwadwo Baah and Peter Etebo will also be absent, but Juraj Kucka is back in contention, having served a one-game suspension against the Red Devils last time out.

William Troost-Ekong is expected to take Nkoulou’s spot in the middle of the defence, while Sarr’s absence will open the door for Juan Hernandez to feature in a wide area for the Hornets.
