Leicester City vs Watford ratings: Molla Wague off the pace in Premier League defeat

skyA Jamie Vardy penalty and a late Riyad Mahrez strike were enough to earn Leicester City a 2-0 win over Watford.

BBC SportWatford have now won just one of their last 11 Premier League matches, while Leicester improve to two wins from seven in the league and move up to seventh place in the table.

TelegraphWatford are in a bad run. They have lost eight of their last 11 games, although the points banked at the start are keeping them out of trouble. Manager Marco Silva pointed out, as he is entitled to, that with six or seven first-team players out injured – Heurelho Gomes and Tom Cleverley joined the list before this match – any team would struggle. At least Orestis Karnezis, making his first start after Gomes pulled out with a back problem, atoned for his nightmare entry off the bench at Everton last November.

Watford announced Marco Silva’s sacking as Head Coach early on Sunday morning which was then featured by the following blogs along with reports from the Leicester game.

BHappy imageOK, so there was supposed to be a Leicester report. Sorry about that. Birthday drinks on Saturday night delayed that exercise and by the time I got round to sitting down events had moved on apace and an account of events at the KP Stadium had become almost superfluous, like a restaurant review of a curry shop that shut down a week ago.

FranIn line with other Premier League clubs, there was a minute’s applause for the wonderful Cyrille Regis, who passed away earlier this week.  Those of us of a certain age were deeply saddened at his early death.  He was a wonderful player to watch and one who was a trailblazer for the young players of colour that have followed him.

The Hornets NestOne win from our last 11 league matches, leaving us five points above the relegation zone (despite still being 10th in the league), coupled with a loss of confidence from the dressing room and shocking performances on the pitch and as a result the atmosphere at Vicarage Road beginning to turn toxic meant that something had to give.

20th January 2001- New Division One, Watford 1 Fulham 3

GT on passing the landmark of 1000 games as a manager.

BSAD imageThink back to the start of the season, when we could look at our forthcoming opponents without fear, when even our fellow Premiership casualties didn’t appear to offer a serious challenge. Our squad was as strong as any in the division, more complete and more experienced than the one that had been promoted. All we needed were performances to match.  On Saturday morning, those thoughts were finally laid to rest. Fulham are better than us, better than everyone else. Of course, the league table already provides a fairly clear indication of that…but it’s beyond doubt now.
