Watford Rewind: GW29 vs Leicester City

This was a big game for Watford, returning home from Anfield the previous week, where the Hornets were demolished, 5-0 thanks in part to a staunch defense that decided to offense and supplant themselves at the top of the Premier League.

At the KP Stadium, Watford didn’t put a shot on target. Against Liverpool and Newcastle, we had but one shot on target.
