So the long, glorious international break is over, and today we have to watch Leicester City again. Still, the team have had two weeks to get their act together, and it’s been a productive time for Jamie Vardy, as he finally got back on the scoreboard.
Last season has finished. Watford have a new manager, a changed system and good players. It will be a tough game - Ranieri knows he can’t rest on last year’s 6-point success against Watford
Today’s opponents, Watford, are defying expectations for the second year in a row (as, I suppose, are we) and find themselves in 8th place. The Hornets are possibly coming out of the break even more desperate to set the record straight the Foxes, having been hammered 6-1 by Liverpool in their last game.
