Leicester register first win of 2017 over Liverpool

Jamie Vardy scored his first Premier League goals for nearly three months as Leicester players suddenly rediscovered their title-winning form on Monday night.

Leicester’s Jamie Vardy scored twice to sink Liverpool

Four days after the sacking of boss Claudio Ranieri, Vardy struck twice as he and his team-mates showed the aggression and effort missing throughout this miserable season.

Danny Drinkwater scored his first of the season with a 25-yard volley and Philippe Coutinho pulled one back for Liverpool.

Leicester City managed to score their first goal of 2017 and recorded their first win since New Year’s Eve on Monday, and all it took was the sacking of the manager who delivered the unlikeliest of Premier League titles last May.

On this night, Leicester looked like the Leicester of last season under Claudio Ranieri. Jamie Vardy, who came into the game having scored in just one of his past 18 Premier League games, suddenly found his shooting boots and scored twice, while his teammates managed to recapture their impressive underdog mojo and lift themselves out of the relegation zone.
