Leicester City 2 Watford 0: Vardy & Maddison star

Claudio Ranieri kisses the Premier League trophy after guiding Leicester City to the title

Claudio Ranieri faces Leicester City for the first time since guiding them to the 2015-16 Premier League title

To say thank you for their memorial banner to former Leicester chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprahba, his son Aiywatt made all the food and drink in the Watford section free at half time.

And Puel is unsure whether Vardy will be able to take his place in the Leicester squad as they seek to extend a five-match unbeaten run in the league.

Demarai Gray crashed an effort against the post for Leicester, while two squandered chances from Andre Gray were the only late openings of note at the other end before Capoue saw red for a two-footed challenge on substitute Kelechi Iheanacho, who Watford felt was the one who should have been penalised. I don't know for the moment.

"He was very upset with himself and it was important for him to give a good reward to his teammates and bring the quality to his game". I don't know the players that are available for this game.

On the game front, Leicester recorded their first home win in the league since September with a comfortable 2-0 victory over Watford.

- Since the start of the 2014-15 season, Jamie Vardy has won more penalties in the Premier League than any other player (14). "We needed to be strong and deeper than the last game but we needed to have the game to play counter-attack to adapt to the opponent's style", Puel said.

Leicester City's owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha died in a helicopter crash on October 28 as he was flying back home after attending a Leicester match at home stadium against West Ham United. While not quite as productive as Mahrez, Maddison has performed well this season, scoring three goals this season, while creating chances for Jamie Vardy, who leads the club with four goals.
