Claudio Ranieri is sure of a warm welcome as he returns to a King Power dugout for the first time since February 2017. But his aim will be to upset the home crowd by plotting a win for Watford, who will arrive flushed with confidence following last Saturday’s trouncing of Manchester United. Leicester, by contrast, have been rather fragile recently and were booed off after last week’s defeat by Chelsea, but Thursday’s encouraging win in the Europa League may have restored some belief. That defence still looks jittery, however, and Brendan Rodgers will be hoping Jonny Evans is fit enough to start. Paul Doyle.
