'New Year, New Me' - Jamie Vardy Explains His Unusual Goal Celebration

'New Year, New Me' - Jamie Vardy Explains His Unusual Goal Celebration

A second-half Jamie Vardy goal proved the difference today as Leicester City over an error-strewn Everton in their Premier League tie.

It caps a remarkable run of games for Claude Puel's outfit who have now beaten Everton, Chelsea and Manchester City in their last four games. For Marco Silva, it is a time of grave concern as the boos were audible on the final whistle.

Following his goal, Vardy broke out a Robbie Keane-like celebration as he somersaulted and tumbled his way to the corner flag.

A visibly irritated Silva hinted at unrealistic expectations when speaking to Sky Sports post-match.

As a club, we didn’t say once we’ll be challenging for the top six.  I don’t know why you are asking me about this situation, and it’s not lack of ambition because we have big ambition behind us as a club.

But we have to be honest and be fair with us as well and look at the other clubs for the budget they have as well.

They do have a winnable run of games oncoming, with Bournemouth, Southampton and Huddersfield next up.
