Rodgers allays fears of long-term Vardy injury

Rodgers allays fears of long-term Vardy injury Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers has claimed that Jamie Vardy should be okay following his injury against Watford at the weekend. Vardy was taken off in the second-half after he went down off the ball near the half-way line, with medical staff treating him on the pitch. Rodgers has come out and allayed fears of a long-term injury, by claiming that he should be fine in the coming days. Leicester conceded in stoppage time to lose 2-1 to Watford in Rodgers’ first game, but Vardy had levelled the scores with a fine finish from Youri Tielemans’ through ball.

Floyd Ayite looked to have secured a point for Fulham but Jamie Vardy plundered two late goals as Leicester City triumphed at home.

Jamie Vardy reached a century of goals for Leicester City as his late double secured a 3-1 Premier League victory over Fulham in Brendan Rodgers' first game in charge at the King Power Stadium.

Rodgers suffered a last-gasp defeat in his maiden game at the helm last weekend at Watford and his side had to work hard to secure maximum points against a spirited Fulham side, who are now 13 points from safety.

On-loan Monaco midfielder Youri Tielemans was the Foxes' stand-out player and he got them on their way with a simple finish midway through the first half, only for Floyd Ayite to pull the Cottagers level with their first effort on target in the 51st minute.

As the Foxes looked to be heading for a frustrating draw, Vardy powered through and unleashed an unstoppable drive into Sergio Rico's bottom-right corner to reach his personal landmark -  then followed that up with another cool finish four minutes from time to wrap up all three points.

Jamie Vardy has spoken about how he felt relieved to score twice to reach his century of goals for the club last weekend.
