Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri praised the in-form strike partnership of Riyad Mahrez and Jamie Vardy ahead of the clubs match at home to Watford on Saturday (7 November).

They are very important for us because we make a good football but at the end you have to score. They are playing well, they are playing for the team, they link very well with each other. They score a goal, or have a very good assist and then we are very, very happy, said Ranieri at a news conference.

Algerian star Mahrez scored a double in the clubs last game at West Bromwich Albion to bring his goal tally up to seven this season. Vardy has 11 goals to his name, part of an eight-game scoring streak in the Premier League, two games shy of equalling the record of former Manchester United striker Ruud van Nistelrooy.

I think hes used to playing this way. He plays fast, everything he tries to do, he does at a hundred miles per hour, and its difficult, no? Also you can make mistakes but in this moment, hes in great form and everything he does is done well. It must continue in this way, Ranieri said.

Ranieris side sit third in the table, ahead of Manchester United and only three points off the top. The Italian said his team were not looking too far ahead and will take the season one game at a time.

No, no, no, we speak only about title to you, to everybody, we dont have a dream. We have just to do. Our focus is on Watford now. Watford. Not the points, there are three points, its important to get something.
