(Leeds-Leicester 1-4) The league champion from 2015/16 is suddenly in 2nd place in the table. Ring fox Jamie Vardy (33) was involved in three goals when Leeds were beaten on Monday night.
Leicester have only Liverpool ahead of them in the Premier League table after seven games played.
After the sensational league gold in 2015/16, Leicester has become number 12, 9, 9 and 5 in the following seasons.
Now Leicester have reached their level one “pers” from 2000/01 with 15 points in the first seven games.
– This was Jamie Vardy’s masterclass, Chris Sutton stated as an expert on BBC Radio.
– Jamie Vardy shows that he is both a great goal scorer and a great team player, teammate Harvey Barnes said in an interview with the BBC.
Vardy was injured against Aston Villa (0-1 loss), but came in the last 30 minutes against Arsenal and scored the winning goal there.
Against Leeds on Monday night, he served Harvey Barnes after only 1.59 minutes – and 1-0 to the guests.
– Vardy has eyes in her neck, Brede Hangeland smiled in TV 2 studio.
The score came 19 seconds after Patrick Bamford had a mega chance to give Leeds the lead, but the header went straight to Kasper Schmeichel.
Then Jamie Vardy fell head over heels after 20 minutes. Leeds goalkeeper Illan Meslier had to give back, and Youri Tielemans picked up the fallout and increased to 2-0 for Leicester.
