Maddison says ‘I had to make amends’ after inspiring Leicester victory

James Maddison of Leicester City celebrates scoring a goal during the Premier League match between Leicester City and Watford FC at The King Power Stadium

Watford have now won just two of their last 11 games and missed fine chances through Isaac Success and Andre Gray.

To make matters worse for Watford, who have now only collected one point from their last four games, Etienne Capoue was sent off in the last minute for a two-footed challenge on Kelechi Iheanacho, a decision the visitors disagreed with.

Jamie Vardy's penalty and Maddison's magnificent volley, which capped a trademark Leicester counter-attack, had the hosts 2-0 up inside 23 minutes on Saturday, and there were no further goals in the match.

Leicester boss Claude Puel compared James Maddison to Glenn Hoddle after the midfielder's superb strike put him on the road to redemption.

And Puel - who played with Hoddle at Monaco - believes he has seen flashes of the former England manager, who is recovering from a heart attack, in Maddison. "I'm happy for the squad because they gave their best". There's a comparison there because he (Maddison) can invent some different moves. He is improving and he is an intelligent player.

The opener came after Ben Chilwell's throughball released Vardy, who was brought down as he tried to round Foster, referee Graham Scott pointing to the spot despite the goalkeeper's protests.

Maddison then completed a sweeping move - which he started - when he brilliantly controlled Marc Albrighton's cross, juggled past Adrian Mariappa and volleyed into the bottom corner.

Gasoline stocks fell by 764,000 barrels, compared with analysts' expectations for a 640,000-barrel gain. Wise stated that that would depend on the severity of cuts adopted by OPEC and its allies.

Demarai Gray hammered against the outside of the post after Pereira's good run but, despite Watford's improvement since the break, the Foxes maintained a degree of control.

"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.

"We need to be aware and be careful of this team because they play very well".

Boss Javi Gracia confirmed the club will appeal the red and also refused to criticise referee Graham Scott following the penalty.

"I have time to understand what we need". I spoke to Iheanacho and he said there was no contact by Capoue.

"That winning feeling, you never get bored of that".
