Vardy ready for domestic title push

Leicester striker Jamie Vardy admits he’s never felt better after his midweek exploits against Liverpool and is ready for the title run-in.

The Premier League’s top marksman scored twice against the Reds on Tuesday evening, one of them, potentially the goal of the season, and Vardy believes his groin problem is a thing of the past.

“As each game comes, we’re going to get better and stronger and hopefully I’ll get the season out with no more niggles,” the 28-year-old said ahead of the crucial trip to Manchester City on Saturday.

The England international has been in superb form this season, scoring 18 goals to lead the unfancied Foxes to league summit.

Leicester boss Claudio Ranieri seemed upbeat about Vardy’s recovery when speaking to Foxes Player HD.

“For one month he didn’t train because he had a (groin) problem and we kept him calm without training, just to play and of course slowly his fitness went down. Now it’s getting better and better,” Ranieri said.
