Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers has continued to praise ‘world class’ Jamie Vardy after the striker netted another goal against Arsenal.

The 33-year-old forward came off the bench to score the winner at the Emirates Stadium, securing the Foxes’ first win away to the Gunners since 1973.

It also extended Vardy’s stunning record against the North-Londoners having netted 11 goals in his last 12 Premier League appearances including five in his last four meetings.

Following Leicester’s 1-0 win in North London on Sunday evening, Foxes’ boss Rodgers was full of praise for his top scorer.

“Everyone talks about the goals he scores against Arsenal and the big teams but that’s why he’s a big player,” he said.

“He makes that big contribution in the biggest games and that shows you the level that he’s at. He’s a world-class striker and I’m very lucky to have him here.”

After their win at the Emirates Stadium, Leicester are back in action against AEK Athens in the UEFA Europa League on Thursday evening. Vardy is yet to make an appearance in the competition due to injury but he could well be fit enough for the trip to the Greek capital and can be backed at a price of 12/5 with William Hill to net the opening goal of the clash.
