Watford and Leicester City drew 1-1 in the Premier League’s early kick-off today.
Ben Chilwell scored his third top-flight goal of the season in the last minute of normal time. A wonderful switch of play from Demarai Gray, who had just been brought on by Brendan Rodgers, picked out Chilwell’s run and gave the Leicester left-back enough space to smartly shift the ball into the box before smashing it across the face of goal and in off the right post.
That's a centre-back! 🤯

Three minutes later came something even more remarkable: Craig Dawson scored a bicycle kick. Leicester failed to clear a 93rd-minute corner and when the ball rebounded toward the six-yard box, where Watford’s 30-year-old was waiting to astonish viewers with an acrobatic equaliser and his first goal for the Hornets.
“Defensively, he was impeccable today,” said Rio Ferdinand of Dawson during BT’s coverage, which also awarded him the Man of the Match award.
The result leaves Watford vulnerable to rivals looking to climb out of the relegation zone, but only if two of West Ham, Bournemouth and Aston Villa win.
It also gives Chelsea the chance to gain ground on Leicester tomorrow when they play Aston Villa but preserves their eight-point lead over fifth-place Manchester United.
