If you got up early for Watford-Leicester City, you were greatly rewarded. That may not have been the case for the first 89 minutes but once things got down to the wire, both teams hit another gear and provided an entertaining conclusion.

Leicester, currently sitting 3rd in the Premier League, struck first blood in the 90th minute as Ben Chilwell unleashed a rocket of a shot off his left foot into the top right corner of the goal. Ben Foster didn’t have a chance to get a hand on that and Leicester thought they had three points.

That was, until a couple minutes later. In the 93rd minute, the corner kick bounced around and fell to Craig Dawson, who unleashed a bicycle kick to get the equalizer and share the points.

Watford, who is in the midst of a relegation battle, need to collect as many points as they can. And with the draw, they currently move up to 16th, just one point ahead of West Ham and Bournemouth in 17th and 18th and two points ahead of Aston Villa in 19th.

For Leicester, a win would’ve further cemented their top four standing but sitting eight points ahead of Manchester United in 5th, a draw will still suit them well with eight games left.
