Leicester 4

The 4 team was the first to ever win a major European championship in an English football league after being promoted from the second division. Leicester City has now become one of the most successful clubs worldwide and is known as not just for its achievements on-pitch, but also for how it maintains such incredible community spirit off-pitch.

Watford vs Leicester is a football match that took place on the 25th of October 2013. It was Watford’s first ever game in the Premier League, and it was Leicester City’s first ever game in the Premier League.

Jamie VardyIn 2015-16, Jamie Vardy scored 24 goals as Leicester won the Premier League under Claudio Ranieri.

Claudio Ranieri’s homecoming to the King Power Stadium was ruined by Jamie Vardy’s two goals as Leicester defeated Watford in a thrilling contest.

For the first time since leading the Foxes to the Premier League triumph in 2015-16, Ranieri was in the opponents’ bench, and he was greeted warmly by the home crowd.

His present team, though, contributed significantly to their own demise in a wild and exhilarating game played in blizzard circumstances.

When Jonny Evans sent a free kick forward, William Ekong dove under the ball, allowing James Maddison to score the game’s first goal past Daniel Bachmann in the 16th minute.

When Wilfred Ndidi carelessly chopped down Emmanuel Dennis in the 30th minute, Watford were granted an opportunity to equalize. Joshua King converted the penalty into the top corner.

Vardy produced a superb lifted finish following Maddison’s ball four minutes later, and the duo linked again shortly before half-time, with Vardy flicking in a header from Maddison’s corner.

Dennis then dispossessed Timothy Castagne and calmly scored to make it 3-2 in the 61st minute, but Harvey Barnes set up Ademola Lookman for a close-range tap-in to restore the hosts’ two-goal lead.

Leicester moves up to ninth place from 13th, while Watford remains 16th, four points above the relegation zone.

Watford’s defensive flaws are exposed

Leicester’s victory was just their fifth in 13 Premier League games this season. After a 3-1 victory against Legia Warsaw on Thursday, manager Brendan Rodgers will be pleased with his team’s performance in difficult, occasionally ludicrous circumstances in their second game in four days.

The play started in clear weather, but after 20 minutes, snow began to fall and did not stop for the remainder of the game.

Burnley’s home match against Tottenham was postponed earlier on Sunday due to heavy snow at Turf Moor, while the game at Leicester was delayed in the second half as ground personnel cleared the snow with brooms merely to see the lines of the penalty area.

Although Vardy subsequently claimed Bachmann was “trying to have it called off with the official,” the game was able to be finished despite seven minutes of injury time.

“You must maintain a professional demeanor, which we did. We weren’t concerned since the pitches had undersoil heating “Vardy remarked.

“I was hoping not,” Rodgers responded when asked whether he was worried the game might be called off. Swansea City played Ipswich Town at Portman Road the last time I was engaged in a game like that.

“However, the ground crew removed the areas that the referee requested, and the ball continued to go normally. We were able to watch the game through when the snow lessened.”

Last time out, Watford defeated Manchester United 4-1, costing United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer his job. However, they were vulnerable in defence against the Foxes throughout the game. Vardy came close to scoring a hat-trick in the first half, but was stopped by Bachmann’s legs.

Ranieri would have had a bittersweet day as Leicester supporters shouted songs applauding him throughout the game, a homage to the club’s success five years ago when they won the league having being tipped as 5,000-1 outsiders at the start of the season.

Ranieri has now lost four of his six games in command of Watford. His team hasn’t kept a clean sheet this season and has to improve substantially and fast at the back.

Chelsea, the European champions, will visit Vicarage Road on Wednesday, followed by Manchester City, the Premier League champions, on Saturday.

Watford might be on the receiving end of two thrashings if they defend as they did at the King Power Stadium.
