    Is Jamie Vardy “world class”? Leicester striker just loves banging Arsenal down

    Brendan Rodgers has hailed Jamie Vardy as “world-class” several times as he finds the back of the net.

    Having missed the Foxes’ last two games with a calf problem, Vardy returned to action from the bench at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday evening, firing home an 80th-minute winner to move Leicester onto 12 points from their opening six games last season.

    The effort was Vardy’s 11th goal in 12 outings against the Gunners — who reportedly tried to sign the 33-year-old in 2016 — with no side suffering more at the former England international’s hands.

    In fact, only Wayne Rooney (12) has scored more Premier League goals against Arsenal than Vardy, who is now the highest-scoring away player at the Emirates Stadium with five goals.

    Vardy was on 7 goals since the start of the Premier League campaign. Rodgers said he feels fortunate to be coaching such a talent.

    “Our plan was always to bring Jamie into the game and he can stretch it,” said Rodgers. “That is why he is a big player. He makes big contributions in the big games. That shows you the level he is at, and he is a world-class player. I am lucky to have him here.

    “We deserved it. We played against a really good side who have players who can run in behind. To keep a clean sheet and play with quality and calmness was good. The boys were outstanding.”

    Vardy himself stressed the importance of Sunday’s result after Leicester had lost back-to-back Premier League games to West Ham and Aston Villa.

    “We weathered the storm and we started getting into it,” he said. “We played well and came away with a win. It is big for us but it is just the next game. We had a couple of bad results and we just wanted to put it right.”

    Despite heading into his mid-30s, Vardy’s output in front of goal – and electric pace – are both reminiscent of a 25-year-old. As such, he is the Leicester player with the highest goals this Premier League season, while he is responsible for 46% of their strikes in the competition so far.

    But with their “world-class” goalscorer in this sort of form, Rodgers’ Leicester City must be considered one of the strongest contenders.

    24% of Jamie Vardy‘s PL goals have come vs Arsenal, Liverpool or Man City and you have to say fair enough.
