A great game at Vicarage Road saw Watford grab a last gasp winner on Brendon Rodgers return to the Premier League and his former side.

Another masterclass from Hornets captain Troy Deeney saw him bag another goal and a last-minute assist as he hooked the ball over to substitute Andre Gray who calmly slotted home for a 92nd minute winner.

A fast and powerful start from the home side saw the Leicester keeper make an important save in the first two minutes of the game which led to a vital block from captain, Wes Morgan.

Finally, Gracia’s sides fast start to the game paid off after a pin-perfect free kick from Deulofeu was headed in by the Watford captain.

Watford were the better side in the first half which finished 1-0.

The start to the second half saw Rodgers men camped around the Watford box with no breakthrough for the visitors.

Two penalty appeals got the Watford fans on top of referee Jon Moss as both were waved away.

A potential chance for Deeney saw him collide with Kasper Schmeichel as the goalkeeper was first to the ball which resulted in the Watford captain receiving a yellow card – which wasn’t liked by the home fans.

Gracia’s first substitute saw an unhappy Deulofeu walk off the pitch for super sub Andre Gray.

A great game from Leicester youngster Tielemans saw him pass a pin-point through ball to on-form Jamie Vardy who finished with a crisp strike to score the first goal that Ben Foster has conceded at Vicarage Road in 2019.

His goal was his last contribution to the game as he limped down the tunnel after an injury that he picked up.

A big chance for the visitors on 90 minutes saw Morgan head Maddison’s cross wide of the post.

Two minutes later and Deeney hooked ball over the Leicester City defence was finished calmly by Andre Gray.

A good game all around for Gracia’s side sees them stay in eighth position on level points with European contenders Wolves.
