With another fantastic individual effort at the King Power Stadium, the 24-year-old showed to be Watford’s key man in attack.
The Super Eagles man won a penalty and scored a goal, but Watford were unable to capitalise on their good form following a 4-2 defeat against Leicester City at the King Power Stadium in adverse weather circumstances.
Four of the six goals were scored in the first 45 minutes, thanks to a superb first-half performance by the home side, which was aided by some bad defending from the visitors, including a moment of madness from William Troost-Ekong.
In the 16th minute, Super Eagles defender William Troost-Ekong made a bizarre and horrible gaffe that gave the home team a 1-0 lead.
Meanwhile, Vardy grabbed a brace, with Maddison and Lookman also on target for the Foxes.
The game ended 4-2 with three points for the hosts, which means that they move up to the top half and into ninth.
“We need to learn from our mistakes, because since I arrived there are many games where we think we should do much better but we make some mistakes,” Moussa Sissoko said shortly after the game.
“I don’t like this. I want my players to fight a little more,” Claudio Ranieri added.
