Jamie Vardy and James Maddison’s first-half goals gave Leicester a 2-0 win over Watford in the Premier League on Saturday, as the visitors winless run extended to four games.
Vardy’s run off the shoulder of Watford defenders Craig Cathcart and Adrian Mariappa resulted in Foster clattering in to him for the Leicester penalty – the 13th the former England forward has converted out of 15 attempts in the top flight. And a sweeping riposte initiated by Maddison from a Watford attack then brought the second goal, with Vardy turning Mariappa and Albrighton picking out the midfielder, who had raced 50 yards to receive his pass.
Watford fans were given free food and drink at Saturday’s Premier League game at Leicester after displaying a banner dedicated to the club’s late owner.
Watford have won two of their past 11 games and missed fine chances through Isaac Success and Andre Gray. Their misery was underlined when Capoue was shown a red card a minute from the end.
Gracia confirmed he plans to appeal against the decision. “It was in front of me and Iheanacho said he didn’t touch him and that’s more important than what I say.
Jon and Colin have got a short podcast for you – well there are two games this week – and they discuss the not very good performance that lead to Watford losing away at the King Power Stadium.
