Leicester City showcased their relentless pursuit of an immediate Premier League comeback with a commanding 2-1 triumph over Watford at the Vicarage Road. The win sees the Foxes soar 11 points clear of Southampton at the summit of the Championship table, bolstering their aspirations for a swift return to top-flight football...CONTINUE READING..

Patson Daka spearheaded Leicester’s offensive prowess, converting a penalty just 11 minutes into the encounter after Dennis Praet was fouled in the box by Giorgi Chakvetadze. Daka’s clinical finish marked his contribution to Leicester’s Championship-high 64 goals in a mere 30 matches this campaign.

The first half unfolded as a testament to Leicester’s dominance, with Watford struggling to penetrate their sturdy defense. Foxes’ goalkeeper Mads Hermansen remained largely untested, symbolizing Leicester’s defensive solidity and control over proceedings.

Ricardo Pereira extended Leicester’s lead in the 55th minute with a composed finish, further cementing their authority on the match. However, a late twist ensued as Harry Winks’ errant back-pass gifted Emmanuel Dennis a lifeline, reducing the deficit for Watford.

Despite the late scare, Leicester held firm, clinching their second consecutive victory at Vicarage Road for the first time since 2016. Meanwhile, Watford’s woes persist as they extend their winless streak in the Championship to four matches, highlighting the challenges ahead for the Hornets.

Elsewhere, Leeds United continued their remarkable form in 2024, maintaining their perfect record in the EFL Championship with a dominant 3-0 win over Rotherham at Elland Road.

The match kicked off with Leeds immediately asserting their dominance, controlling possession and dictating the tempo. However, controversy arose with their opening goal as Patrick Bamford appeared to use his arm to redirect a deflected cross into the net. Despite vehement protests from Rotherham and discussions among match officials, the goal stood, giving Leeds an early advantage.

Rotherham struggled to establish any sustained possession and squandered a golden opportunity when Crysencio Summerville failed to capitalize on a clear chance, blasting his shot over the bar.

Leeds continued to press forward, with Wilfried Gnonto forcing a fingertip save from Rotherham’s goalkeeper just before halftime. The onslaught continued after the break, with Bamford narrowly missing a chance to double his tally as his shot rattled the crossbar.

However, it was Summerville who extended Leeds’ lead, calmly slotting home a one-on-one opportunity to make it 2-0. The winger showcased nerves of steel by converting a penalty later in the match after being fouled in the box, securing his brace and sealing Leeds’ victory.
