    For Watford though, they are still nervous.

    The match report is here and you can follow the analysis here. Thanks for joining us and bye for now.

  5. Post update

    Leicester City 2-0 Watford

    A hopeful ball is played into the Leicester penalty area, but Foxes goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel does well to clutch the ball and end any danger.

  6. Post update

    Leicester City 2-0 Watford

    With Hull losing, Watford are very, very close to securing their Premier League survival. They will be glad they don't have to rely on picking up any more points as their last three games are against Everton, Chelsea and Manchester City.

  7. Post update

    Leicester City 2-0 Watford

    Andy King looks for Jamie Vardy but the cross is overhit and the chance is wasted.

    Anyway back for Watford?


    Leicester City 2-0 Watford

    Off goes goalscorer Riyad Mahrez for Leicester, with Demarai Gray getting a run-out.


    Leicester City 2-0 Watford

    A good spell from Watford. M'Baye Niang and Tom Cleverley are both denied by Kasper Schmeichel in quick succession, before Schmeichel tips a well-struck effort from Cleverley over the top.

  10. Post update

    Leicester City 2-0 Watford

    Some good news for Watford fans as Hull have gone 1-0 down at home to Sunderland.

    Watford still aren't mathematically guaranteed to finish above Hull, but have a far superior goal difference compared to Marco Silva's side.

    Swansea, who are currently 18th, also have to win all three of their games to also overtake Watford.

  11. CLOSE!

    Leicester City 2-0 Watford

    Leicester's Christian Fuchs goes close with a free-kick, but his 25-yard effort whistles over the bar.

  12. CLOSE!

    Leicester City 2-0 Watford

    Watford are all over the place here. Riyad Mahrez leads the charge down the right flank, cuts inside and squares it to substitute Islam Slimani, who leans back on the shot and over the top it goes.

    We haven't seen much of Watford this half.

  13. GOOD SAVE!

    Leicester City 2-0 Watford

    Nearly a third for Leicester. Jamie Vardy cuts inside the struggling Adrian Mariappa and blasts low at the Watford goal but Heurelho Gomes can get his body behind the ball and pushes it to safety.


    Leicester City 2-0 Watford

    Changes for both sides. Leicester's Andy King comes on for Danny Drinkwater. Islam Slimani had replaced Shinji Okazaki moments earlier.

    Etienne Capoue is off for Watford and Troy Deeney is on in his place.

  15. Post update

    Leicester City 2-0 Watford

    Leicester are on the hunt for more goals here. Watford need to push forward if they are going to have any hope of pulling this one out of the fire.

    Thomas Hollern: Vintage stuff from Leicester? It was only last season yet it feels so long ago.

  17. BreakingMahrez makes it 2-0

    Leicester City 2-0 Watford

    And that could well be the game. A long ball forward is flicked on by Leicester's Jamie Vardy, Watford defender Adrian Mariappa fails to clear the danger and Riyad Mahrez is able to run through.

    Just before Sebastien Prodl can get there to challenge, Mahrez is able to slide the ball through the legs of Watford goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes from a tight angle and into the net.

    Leicester double their lead.
