Amidst the busy schedule of the Premier League, the outfits gear up themselves for the FA Cup. In the third round of the domestic cup competition, Leicester City will square off against Watford.

Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester City faced Liverpool in their previous Premier League fixture and emerged victorious against them. Kasper Schmeichel denied a penalty to Salah whereas Ademola Lookman scored just before the hour mark to break the deadlock.

On the other hand, Watford are struggling in the league. Though they have put valiant performances on the pitch, the results have not favored them. They have lost five out of five of their previous games and the recent one was against Tottenham Hotspur. The team will look to return to winning ways against LCFC.
