Author of a hat-trick, Vardy largely contributed to Leicester City's box on Manchester City (2-5), this Sunday, on behalf of the second day of Premier League.
After their inaugural success against Wolverhampton last weekend, enhanced by a League Cup qualification this week at the expense of Bournemouth,fell heavily this Sunday, at home, against an astonishing (2 -5). Carried by a Vardy on fire, but also thanks to three penalties obtained, the Foxes take the lead in the championship.
Despite a clear domination from the first moments of the meeting, rewarded by an early and sublime opener from Riyad Mahrez (4th, 1-0), the Citizens did not manage to widen the gap. They will then be punished just before the break by a strong Leicester, proceeding with quick attacks, and who will convert a penalty through Vardy (37 ', 1-1).
Untenable, Vardy will even double the return from the locker room (54th, 1-2), before offering himself a hat-trick on a new penalty (1-3, 58th). There will even be a third penalty awarded to the visitors, this time transformed by the former Monegasque Tielemans (88th, 2-5). Meanwhile, Maddison had hit (77th, 1-4), while Aké (84th, 2-4) thought to revive his own. Never before has Pep Guardiala, whether with Barça, Bayern or Manchester City, conceded five goals in a game ... That’s to say the feat achieved by the Foxes!
