The third and final preview of Saturday's Premier League games sees the final 3pm kick off covered and the Saturday Night Football Match.

Watford host Leicester at Vicarage Road, with both sides looking to exercise the demons having been beaten in their respective fixtures prior to the international break.

Watford were hammered 6-1 at Anfield, in their heaviest defeat in the Premier League. The Hornets put in a pitiful performance and there was no dabbing from Troy Deeney and co as Liverpool routinely walked the ball into the Watford net.

Leicester suffered another defeat themselves, this time it was a home defeat against West Brom. They have looked a shadow of the side that won the Premier League last season, with the hole vacated by N'Golo Kante proving hard to fill.

Watford vs Leicester – Saturday 19th November 2016 – 15:00


Watford welcome Leicester to Vicarage Road on Saturday afternoon, with both sides coming into the match on the back of defeats.

Watford come into this match in poor form, and with their confidence very low after their humbling 6-1 defeat at Anfield.

Goals from Sadio Mane (27, 60), Phillipe Coutinho (30), Emre Can (43), Roberto Firmino (57) and Giorgino Wijnaldum (90+1) completed a route for Liverpool at Anfield.

Daryl Janmaat (75) scored a consolation goal for the Hornets but overall it was a truly pitiful performance from the visitors and one they won't be proud of.

Hornets Looking To Move On

The Hornets will be looking to move on from that heavy defeat and continue their excellent recent form in the Premier League.

Despite a tough start to life as Watford manager, Walter Mazzarri's side have found a great formula recently and are in 8th place in the table as it stands.

Watford have been solid at the back, during the Liverpool match they did concede more goals in one game than they had done for the prior six matches.

Hornets Underdogs

Watford come into this match as underdogs, despite home advantage but the Hornets suffered a hefty defeat last time out.

This will be a tough fixture for the Walter Mazzarri's side, with Leicester the champions of last year and they have themselves been in mixed form this season.

The Hornets will be looking to better their overall record against Leicester, in 36 meetings they have won 11, drawn 10 and lost 15 times.

Watford are 9/5 with Troy Deeney at 5/1 to score first.


Leicester Inconsistent Again

The visitors Leicester come into this match on the back of a 2-1 defeat at home against West Brom, that is their first home defeat since Arsenal last year.

It's a result that will have disappointed Claudio Ranieri, their home form has been excellent this season, despite their struggles away from the King Power Stadium.

Goals from James Morrison (52) and Matt Phillips (72) twice gave the Baggies the lead, with Phillips socring his first ever Premier League goal.

Islam Slimani equalised for the hosts in the 55th minute but the Foxes yet again found themselves to be their own worst enemies.

Foxes In Mixed Form

It was another frustrating match for Claudio Ranieri and his men, who have had an excellent time of it in Europe but have yet to transfer that to the Premier League.

Only five teams in the Premier League have lost more or the same amount of games that Leicester have.

When you consider they lost just three times the whole of last season, they have suffered three defeats in their last six matches, an incredible fall from grace.

They find themselves 14th in the Premier League on 12 points, they have had a mixed bag in terms of results with three wins, three draws and five defeats so far.

Foxes Favourites

Leicester head into this fixture as the favourites, despite their mixed form on the road they will look to make it their first away win of the season.

They will be looking to register their fourth win of the season, they will also be looking for a third win in seven games.

Claudio Ranieri's men will be looking to continue their excellent recent record against Watford, they did the double over the Hornets last season.

Leicester are 6/4 with Islam Slimani at 5/1 to open the scoring.


The second and final match of this preview sees a huge London derby and the second big match of the day.

Tottenham host West Ham at White Hart Lane, with the hosts looking to end a run of four successive draws and finally score from open play. Harry Kane's return from injury will have been a huge boost for Pochettino and they will look to capitalise on the England striker's return.

West Ham will be looking to better their 1-1 result against Stoke, with boss Slaven Bilic and his charges having seemingly turned the corner in recent games. A moral boosting win against Tottenham will be just what the doctor ordered.

Tottenham vs West Ham – Saturday 19th November 2016 – 17:30 - BT Sport 1


Tottenham welcome West Ham to White Hart Lane on Saturday evening, with both sides coming into the match on the back of draws.

Tottenham come into this match in mixed form, Spurs are without a win in their last six matches in all competitions but crucially they are the only unbeaten team in England.

Arsenal took the lead through a Kevin Wimmer own goal in the 42nd minute, although replays showed the defender was very unlucky.

Harry Kane, who was making a return from a seven-week injury lay-off, duly stepped up and levelled the score from the spot for Spurs.

Tottenham In Need Of Wins

Pochettino will have been the happier of the managers, with the return of Harry Kane after a long inury lay off and scoring sure to delight all associated with Tottenham.

Tottenham have drawn their last four successive Premier League games, with draws against Arsenal, Leicester, Bournemouth and West Brom.

Since beating Manchester City 2-0, Tottenham have slipped behind their rivals in the title race, they now find themselves five points behind leaders Liverpool.

Spurs Favourites

Tottenham come into this match as favourites, with the return of Harry Kane a huge boost, especially given how goal shy they have been of late.

This will be a tough fixture for the Mauricio Pochettino's side, with Tottenham's unbeaten record this season under serious threat from neighbours West Ham.

Spurs have an excellent overall record against West Ham, in 108 meetings they have won 46, drawn 24 and lost 38.

Although they did lose the last encounter against the Hammers 1-0 last season, home advantage will be huge in this fixture.

Tottenham are 8/15 with Harry Kane at 7/2 to score first.


West Ham's Mixed Bag

The visitors come into this match on the back of a 1-1 draw against Stoke, at the London Stadium a fortnight ago.

It was a result that will have disappointed Slaven Bilic, with the move to their new stadium yet to pay off with decent results.

The Potters went behind in the 65th minute, after Glen Whelan bundled into his own net to give the home side the lead.

Bojan came off the bench to score the equaliser in the 75th minute, after an error from West Ham keeper Adrian gave the visitors a share of the spoils.

Hammers Still In Good Form

Winning home games in this league is absolutely crucial and that is another factor that will have disappointed Slaven Bilic immensely.

They failed to capitalise on Stoke's mistakes and were punished for their own, they were on an excellent run of form up until that game.

West Ham will be looking to make it three Premier League wins in five matches, an excellent return given the struggles they endured early season.

Hammers Underdogs

The Hammers head into this fixture as the underdogs, with Tottenham's unbeaten record this season and home advantage taken into account.

They will be looking to register their fourth win of the season, they will also be looking to gain some much-needed momentum after a faltering start.

Slaven Bilic's men will be looking to better their recent record against Tottenham, although they have won four of their last seven meetings.

West Ham are 5/1 with Andy Carrol at 9/1 to open the scoring.
