Vardy a doubt for Leicester's reunion with Ranieri

Vardy a doubt for Leicester's reunion with Ranieri

Vardy scored just his fifth goal of the season when he was fouled by Ben Foster in the area and scored from the spot after 12 minutes.

Leicester City gave their home fans some timely festive cheer by securing their first Premier League win at the King Power Stadium since September with a 2-0 victory over 10-man Watford on Saturday.

Jamie Vardy's early penalty put the hosts in charge and Watford never recovered, with Etienne Capoue sent off a minute from time after a two-footed tackle on Kelechi Iheanacho. "It will be a good feeling for Claudio and the quality of his team at this moment".

"I picked it up from deep, I found Vards who was in a good bit of space and he got it out to Marc".

"I needed to make an impact to make amends and thankfully I did that and hopefully that is in the past now". I'm really chuffed with that one.

He said: "Yes (I have seen a goal like that) with Glenn Hoddle and I would like to wish Glenn all the best in this moment".

Watford have now won just two of their last 11 games and missed fine chances through Isaac Success and Andre Gray. James Maddison's volleyed goal on 23 minutes completed the scoring in this game, perhaps fittingly as it was a thing of such beauty that it deserved not to be crowded out.

Boss Javi Gracia said: "Yes (we will appeal)".

"I saw it clear because it was in front of me, but I prefer not to say anything, only what Iheanacho said", he said.

"But if I am interested I won't tell you", Ranieri said on the signing of Danny Drinkwater. "I know he felt something but we will see with him and my medical staff".

I wouldn't be surprised if the travelling support did so again, as he will be in the opposition dugout for the first time since he was sacked nine months after famously steering Leicester to the Premier League title.

"People have been questioning why we are taking 2 banners to Leicester tomorrow that are not #Watford related". Ahead of their first home game since Vichai's death, Leicester City fans and players also marched from city centre to the stadium in tribute for him.
