Watford snatched a late draw from Leicester City, possibly deservedly, in their EPL match. Rio Ferdinand had some advice for Ben Chilwell after the game.

Craig Dawson scoring an overhead kick in the dying minutes of a premiership contest is not exactly a predictable outcome. And don’t get me wrong, he’s a very underrated defender. Yet, it was so Leicester City that it would hurt if us Foxes didn’t laugh, to be perfectly honest.

In fact, Hornets fans and Leicester supporters would actually tell you that the contest was likely to have some kind of equally matched drama from either side. The match which set off an kind of modern rivalry, was the thrilling, simultaneously dismaying Championship Play-Offs Semi-Final of 2013. Unfortunately I simply cannot remember the outcome of that one though, sorry.

Ben Chilwell’s amazingly cultured finish in Saturday’s contest was stunning as well: the Blue Army knows the England left-back has that quality, but has seldom showcased it this campaign. If he does move to Chelsea, Manchester City or anywhere else, Leicester may just regret selling him.

Although, would you reject an £80 million bid in Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha’s position, hypothetically? I know I wouldn’t… I think.

Ex-England captain’s advice for Leicester City man

Following scoring his side’s only goal of the game in Hertfordshire, then subsequently making a slight defensive error in his team conceding a late equaliser, Chilwell received some advice and mild criticism from former-England skipper Rio Ferdinand. It appears Ferdinand legitimately wanted to assist the player with some wisdom.

The ex-Manchester United defender praised the Fox for his phenomenal goal, whilst also criticising the latter for his defending against Ismaila Sarr. Ferdinand believes Chilwell‘s ‘footwork and body positioning needed work’. However, the one-time Red Devil also went on to hail the Leicester City man’s forward advancing, too.
