Leicester v Watford preview

Leicester manager Nigel Pearson has no new problems ahead of the visit of Watford and may be able to add Ignasi Miquel to his squad as the Foxes look to extend their club-record winning streak to 10 league matches.

Miquel has been struggling with a thigh strain but the centre-back featured for the development squad this week along with Riyad Mahrez, Jeff Schlupp and Chris Wood, who has been nursing a tight hamstring in recent weeks.

Liam Moore (broken rib), Sean St. Ledger (groin) and Tom Hopper (shin) remain out.

Leicester go into the game 10 points clear at the top of the Sky Bet Championship after nearest rivals QPR and Burnley drew 3-3 at Loftus Road last weekend.

Watford, meanwhile, will again be without Lewis McGugan and Almen Abdi for the trip to runaway leaders Leicester.

McGugan has missed the club's last three matches with a thigh injury while fellow midfielder Abdi continues to struggle with his troublesome foot problem.

Long-term absentee Essaid Belkalem, who last featured at the start of November, remains sidelined with an ankle complaint.

Hornets boss Beppe Sannino must decide whether to keep faith with the same XI who claimed last Sunday's 2-0 victory over Brighton - a first win in five Championship attempts.
