Football: 'New Vardy' set for Leicester return at Watford

WATFORD, United Kingdom, , (Pakistan Point News - APP - 18th Nov, 2016 ) - A two-week break from Premier League action has brought good news and bad for flagging champions Leicester City, who visit Watford on Saturday. A 2-1 defeat at home to West Bromwich Albion sent Claudio Ranieri's men into the international break just two points above the relegation zone and with injury issues piling up. But an England goal for Jamie Vardy, ending a two-month drought, has given the Foxes a timely boost ahead of their trip to Vicarage Road.

"It was important for him and important for everybody to score," said manager Ranieri. "Of course he never spoke about it, but I know goalscorers always wants to score. Now we'll see a new Vardy." Goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel (broken hand) and close-season signing Nampalys Mendy (ankle) remain out and key midfielder Danny Drinkwater is a doubt with a rib injury. But while Drinkwater was sitting out England's games against Scotland and Spain, Vardy was scoring for the first time in 15 games in the 2-2 draw with the Spaniards at Wembley on Tuesday.
