Ranieri: Watford Is Tough Match Leicester Must Win

Leicester City boss, Claudio Ranieri says he is anticipating a difficult clash against Watford at Vicarage Road on Saturday, but is a match his side must win to improve their league fortunes.

The English Premier League champions have not had the best of campaigns this season, winning two of their last six games.


Speaking ahead of the game against Watford, Ranieri said in his press conference on Thursday, that he was worried about his team's present position in the league table, and that they have to start securing wins.

“When I look at the table I’m not satisfied. Only with hard work can we change it. Be confident, strong and solid together," the former Chelsea boss said.

“Last season has finished. Watford have a new manager, a changed system and good players. It will be a tough game.”

“I know Walter Mazzarri very well. I think he’s working very well. It’s a tough match. It will be a battle. We want to win.”

And on the injury front, Ranieri said: “ (Danny) Drinkwater and (Demarai) Gray are getting better. Today they worked and I will see tomorrow how they react.”


“Kasper Schmeichel is working with us as a normal outfield player, not in goal…he’s much better in goal!”
