  • Brendan Rodgers left Celtic for Leicester City last month

Brendan Rodgers lost his Premier League return game as his Leicester City side fell to a 2-1 defeat to Watford on Saturday.

Rodgers, back in the Premier League for the first time since losing his job at Liverpool in October 2015, looked to be opening his Foxes tenure with a battling point after Jamie Vardy cancelled out Troy Deeney's fifth-minute opener - but Andre Gray ruined his day when he pounced for an injury-time victor at Vicarage Road.

Congerton is in line to join Rodgers at Leicester ahead of next season and would replace Eduardo Macia, whose contract at the King Power Stadium expires this summer.

" I thought the play was excellent", the 46-year-old said.

Leicester responded after the break, as Jamie Vardy ran onto a fine through-ball from midfielder Youri Tielemans and dinked his finish over Watford goalkeeper Ben Foster for his 10th league goal of the season.

Watford began the second half on the front foot as Deulofeu combined well with Roberto Pereyra to tee up Abdoulaye Doucoure whose curling shot from distance was swatted away by Schmeichel. The gleeful Watford supporters showed their former manager no mercy, chanting: "Javi Gracia, he's better than you".

"If someone had told us nine games ago we would be in this position, no one would have believed them. It is an important amount of points for us, but I can feel the players want more and more".

"But we know the players they have and I don't think they will change a lot the players or the way they are playing".

He said: "The goal at the end is a case of managing the game".
