Holders Leicester City eased by Watford to reach the fourth round of the FA Cup with a 4-1 win at the King Power Stadium on Saturday.
Belgian playmaker Youri Tielemans put the home side ahead from the spot after just seven minutes before England international James Maddison doubled the lead on 25 minutes.
Two minutes later Joao Pedro gave Claudio Ranieri’s struggling side hope, but youngster Harvey Barnes scored early in the second half to settle any nerves for Brendan Rodgers’ side and Marc Albrighton made it four late on.

Marcus Forss scored in the first half and Bryan Mbeumo grabbed what would prove to be the winner with a goal on 66 minutes, with Port Vale’s Kian Harratt pulling one back four minutes later. Mbuemo then added two more, with one coming three minutes from time from the penalty spot, to complete his hat-trick.
QPR won 8-7 on penalties at Loftus Road as they drew 1-1 with Rotherham after neither 90 minutes nor extra time could separate them. Robert Dickie scored the crucial 15th penalty of the shootout.
