Watford v Leicester
Live on Sky Sports 1
Match Odds: Watford 3.02/1, Leicester 2.68/5, The Draw 3.55/2.
Such is the unpredictable nature of this Premier League campaign, Leicester City managed to drop points in the midweek round of fixtures - and yet extend their lead at the top, thanks to Tottenham and Arsenal both losing.
This could be a huge week in the title race, with the two north London clubs squaring off at White Hart Lane - here's my preview of that game. Across London, Leicester will hope to collect a victory at Vicarage Road.
This could be the type of match Watford struggle with, however. Qique Sanchez Flores' side are amongst the most cautious, and well-organised in the Premier League - no other team has seen so few goals in their matches this season, having scored 29 and conceded 29 in 28 games. Watford sit extremely deep, with their forwards and midfielders dropping back to keep the side compact, and they rely on counter-attacking for their chances.
Counter-attacking sides to cancel each other out?
Indeed, this will be a contest between two counter-attacking sides. Leicester average 44% of possession, and Watford 46% of possession. Only West Bromwich Albion and Sunderland, both coached by managers in Tony Pulis and Sam Allardyce, who openly admit they don't care about retaining the ball, have had less.
These teams aren't long ball sides in that sense, but they don't press in midfield, and they get the ball forward quickly. An early goal and things could open out dramatically, but there's a danger of an extremely tight, somewhat dull 0-0 here.
In terms of team selection, Claudio Ranieri is still without inspirational midfielder N'Golo Kante, and therefore Andy King will start alongside Danny Drinkwater for the second time this week. He hit a fine goal in the 2-2 draw at West Brom in midweek.
Elsewhere, there's no reason to suspect Ranieri will make any changes. While once known as the Tinkerman, Ranieri likes keeping a settled starting XI this season and therefore we're likely to see the usual line-up: Jamie Vardy and Shinji Okazaki upfront, Riyad Mahrez on the right, Marc Albrighton on the left, and the usual defence.
Sanchez Flores might make a couple of changes, however. Nathan Ake will expect to return in place of the more attack-minded Jose Holebas at left-back, while underrated centre-back Craig Cathcart could also come back into the side.
Deeney and Ighalo need to reignite
Troy Deeney and Odion Ighalo haven't been in great form recently. Their link-up play earlier in the campaign was the most interesting thing about Watford's play, but Ighalo's selfishness was noticeable in the 1-0 defeat at Old Trafford in midweek, and perhaps borne out of a frustration about his lack of goals. Moments like that can ruin partnerships, though, and it will be interesting to see if Deeney is so keen to supply Ighalo this weekend.
Both sides need to hit the other before they can get men behind the ball. On paper, it's difficult to see Wes Morgan and Robert Huth coping with clever one-twos when high up the pitch, but in the sanctity of the 18-yard box they should be fine.
Likewise, Miguel Britos and Cathcart will be terrified of Vardy and Okazaki's pace and clever running into the channels, but if they sit deep they shouldn't be particularly troubled.
This might be the type of game where we find out more about Leicester: do they have the tools to break down a packed defence?
