Unfortunate Jamie Vardy stat emerges after Watford 2-Leicester 1

Watford 2-Leicester 1

Brendan Rodgers tasted defeat in his first game as Leicester City boss on Sunday.

Leicester travelled to a Watford side who were winless in three before this weekend.

However, the Hornets would take the lead just five minutes into the game thanks to a Troy Deeney strike.

The Foxes would get one back in the 75th minute with Leicester’s star forward Jamie Vardy finding the back of the net.

Andre Gray would then come off the bench to score an injury-time winner for Watford.

Leicester are now eight points off 7th place Wolves with their hopes of European football slowly fading.

Unlucky Jamie Vardy

Despite scoring vs Watford, an unfortunate Jamie Vardy stat has emerged after the game.

In 16 of the games Vardy has scored in since the 2014/15 season, Jamie Vardy has found himself on the losing side.

No other player has lost as many games after scoring in that time.

Leicester City as a club are also having a bit of bad luck this campaign.

Gray’s injury-time winner means Leicester have lost more games (3) to 90th-minute goals than any other Premier League side this season.
