Leicester continue excellent Premier League form with win at Crystal Palace as Jamie Vardy hits ten for the season

3 Nov

Jamie Vardy became the first player to reach ten goals in the Premier League this season as Leicester continued their fine campaign with a 2-0 win at Crystal Palace.

The Englishman returned to the top of the goalscoring charts with a late strike to double to Foxes’ advantage following Caglar Soyuncu’s second-half opener.

And Leicester moved back to third place following a seventh win in their opening 11 games, although this wasn’t quite as easy as their 9-0 victory at Southampton last weekend.

The Foxes were forced to work hard for the victory in what was an evenly-fought contest.

However, despite respectable performances, Palace have emerged from their last three games with just one point.

Up next? A trip to Stamford Bridge with Chelsea on a run of five straight wins.
