Leicester City have cruised into the FA Cup Fourth Round with a 4-1 win over Premier League rivals Watford at the King Power.

Leicester won the battle of the top-flight foes as Claudio Ranieri endured a Leicester return to forget.

Both sides looked ready for a battle from the off in this one as Youri Tielemans netted from the spot and James Maddison clipped Leicester into a 2-0 lead.

But Watford battled back before the whistle as Joao Pedro pounced to fire the Hornets back into it.

That looked to set it up for a scrap in the second period but Leicester’s quality told in the second 45.

Ademola Lookman’s delicious ball was fired home by Harvey Barnes before Marc Albrighton’s late effort steered the holders into Round Four.

Full Time from the King Power Stadium it’s Leicester City 4 Watford 1
