Former Premier League champions Leicester City continue to impress a great deal under manager Brendan Rodgers who has made a very good impression on the team since leaving Scottish champions Celtic to take charge at the King Power Stadium.

The former Liverpool manager led Leicester City to a 2-1 comeback win over struggling Everton at the weekend thus making it six straight wins before that winning run was extended to seven games with the victory over bottom team Watford.

Leicester City have now set a new club record of seven consective victories on the Premier League scene.

The Foxes beat managerless Watford to achieve the record as masterminded by Brendan Rodgers who was also a former coach of Watford at the start of his managerial career.

Leicester City were frustrated by Watford in the first half which ended in a goalless draw but they were not to be denied in the second half after they scored two goals to win the game 2-0 against a team managed by Hayden Mullins until a new manager has been appointed.

Jamie Vardy scored the opening goal from the penalty spot after Jonny Evans was fouled before James Maddison wrapped up the result in added time.

In-form Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy has now scored in seven straight league games.
