Match of the Week FA Cup: Financial head-to-head Leicester City v Watford

  • Cup football is back on the menu in England, with the third round of the FA Cup taking place this week.
  • As Premier League teams enter the tournament, defending champions Leicester City host struggling Watford who have not won a game since their sensational 4-1 victory against Manchester United in November. 
  • Leicester versus Watford is a match that brings back memories for both teams’ fans, although with different emotions.
  • The ending of the Championship play-offs semi-final in 2013, which saw Watford steal the win in the most dramatic fashion, has led to this match going down in footballing folklore.  
  • Saturday’s matchup also means the return of Claudio Ranieri to the King Power Stadium, where he guided Leicester to their first top-flight title in club history back in 2016.
