Leicester player ratings for their 5-1 win against Watford

Leicester, Six Sports

Leicester got back-to-back wins in their search for a top-half finish in the Premier League table.

The Hornets started strong as they scored within five minutes. However, it was unfortunate for Leicester as the shot from Joao Pedro deflected off a helpless Timothy Castagne to land in the Leicester net.

Watford continued to carry on their onslaught as an Adam Masina shot hit the crossbar.

However, the Foxes responded just after 17 minutes from a mixup from the Watford defenders. James Maddison leveled things for the Foxes.

This steered the comeback for the Foxes. In no time after this goal, Leicester got the lead. A sublime finish from Jamie Vardy took the visitors ahead.

After the second half, Leicester continued with their rout. Harvey Barnes scored the third goal of the match.

Then two goals from Barnes and Vardy secured the three points for the Foxes.
