Returning to Leicester in a managerial capacity for the first time since he guided them to a fairytale Premier League title in 2016, Claudio Ranieri addressed the media ahead of the match, discussing his emotions around his return, the absence of Ismaila Sarr, and finding consistency.
Here is what the Italian had to say.
Ismaila Sarr's absence
Neither player will be available for selection this weekend, with Watford still yet to assess the extent of the injuries.
Asked about the impact of Sarr's absence, Ranieri was adamant there are players ready to step up with Sarr out of the team.
"He's a very important players for us player but we have also some players on the bench who are ready to play and I'm sure they will do the maximum for the team."
Returning to Leicester
Ranieri returns to Leicester in the opposing dugout for the first time since his stint at the Foxes came to an end and admitted it will be emotional for him.
"The job give to me good emotion, good emotion, and I'm very proud to be part of the Leicester fairytale and the history of the football, very happy," he explained.
"The fans from the beginning in the early days they stay with me, it's is unbelievable and I want to thank you (them) again once.
"I'm very honest it will be a big emotion from the beginning and after the match, (but) during the match I know I'm an opponent and I try to do that my best." Ranieri added.
Watford's result have been a mixed bag since Ranieri took over, with two wins and three defeats from the Italian's first five games in charge.
"Now we have to continue in this way," Ranieri said referring to the victory over Manchester United.
"I want to be consistent, with the continuity, of course we have to achieve a 40 points and we are to continue to fight in every situation every ball and at the end, we will see."
