The Leicester City footballer scored twice to lead the Foxes to a 4-1 win against Huddersfield Town today in the English Premier League.

Thanks to two goals by Jamie Vardy, one by Youri Tielemans, and another by James Maddison, Leicester City defeated Huddersfield Town 4-1 tonight in the English Premier League.

And the Foxes manager Brendan Rodgers is in awe on the work of Jamie Vardy, after calling him an “incredible player.”

“He’s an incredible player. His journey is well documented but it has been interesting working with him because he’s tactically very, very good,” Rodgers told Sky Sports.

“He’s such a threat in the game with his pace and how he can link the game up and he wants to score goals. There was a fantastic cross from Ricardo [Pereira] for his first and he puts the penalty away.”

“But all around, the players worked very, very hard and there are areas where we can be better. I thought at 2-0 up, we could control it better but these are things that will improve with time,” he added.

“It was a very good attacking performance. When it gets to 2-1, we had to show a reaction and it was very, very good. It was always going to be a difficult game for us today with Huddersfield getting relegated and they wanted to have a reaction, of course.”

“I thought we played very well. We had to make a late change with Caglar [Soyuncu] coming in and I thought he was outstanding. He had one mistake towards the end where he was tired and made a loose pass but apart from that, he was outstanding,” he continued.

“The team worked ever so hard, they were creative and we scored four goals. We could have had one or two more with a better final pass.”
