Two sides that is to be hoping to secure 1 / 3 straight Premier League victory go eyeball to eyeball at the King Power Stadium a few days ago as Leicester City host Watford.
The Foxes are unbeaten of their last four, while Watford have turned around their form, with back-to-back wins leaving them mid-table.
Claudio Ranieri's Leicester City side have already been one on the surprise packages inside the top flight up to now this season, using come-from-behind 3-2 make an impression on West Bromwich Albion leaving them third inside table – a place clear of Manchester United.
Leicester have mislaid just once inside league in 2010, slipping to some 5-2 loss to Arsenal in September. The team have won three of these four fixtures after that, but were knocked out from the League Cup by Hull City on penalties a few weeks ago.
The sort of Riyad Mahrez and Jamie Vardy has certainly helped earlier this week's hosts, with all the England international scoring within his last eight matches, making them the top scorer within the division, while Mahrez's brace from the Baggies leaves him with seven goals from the league until now this season.
Leicester's attacking continues to be among the best inside division, together with the team scoring 23 goals into their 11 matches thus far – only league leaders Manchester City are already more prolific looking at goal. Defending will never be as solid to the Foxes though, having kept one clean sheet this coming year, while conceding 19 times – the only real six sides to get conceded more from the bottom six from the table.
Leicester's home form is usually responsible for their lofty position within the table, using the team winning three in their five home fixtures thus far, but they are also unbeaten abroad.
The team's impressive run in the start in the season has inevitably resulted inside club's in-form players being connected with a escape from the side in January, with Mahrez considered to be on Manchester United's radar, while Tottenham Hotspur and Real Madrid are among a string of clubs being related to Vardy, although Ranieri has insisted that are both happy at Leicester.
