Lots of Leicester City fans have been purring over the build-up and clinical nature of Jamie Vardy’s opening strike against Aston Villa, after the Foxes shared a tweet showing off the brilliant team goal and rather hilarious finish.
The counter-attacking prowess of Brendan Rodgers’ side was on full display on Sunday, as both of Vardy’s goals came from just a few passes.
The first strike in particular was spectacular when you appreciate the quick build-up from Dennis Praet and Kelechi Iheanacho, as the Belgian ace won the ball back in midfield and fed the ex-Man City man.
Iheanacho then smoothly nut-megged a defender before slotting an inch-perfect ball through to Vardy, who of course finished like he always does… well not exactly.
The England international’s scuffed first attempt was quite hilarious really, as it basically turned into a pass to himself to finish from two yards out.
Leicester’s number nine now has a quite ridiculous 16 Premier League goals in 16 games this season, and fans are gushing over the nature of Sunday’s opener.
Take a look at some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
