Jamie Vardy showed he’s the striker Everton need

Everton kicked off 2019 with a disappointing 1-0 defeat to Leicester City.

The Toffees were hoping to start the New Year with a victory after some recent inconsistency, but Marco Silva’s side were ‘anxious and nervous’ according to the Portuguese (via BBC Sport).

It’s now four defeats in five for Everton, who have slipped to 10th in the Premier League table.

At times this season, they have shown glimpses of being a brilliant new outfit under Silva, but it seems they have a way to go yet.

Everton have had some trouble in the goalscoring department over the Christmas period, with Richarlison continuing in a central role ahead of Cenk Tosun and Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

The Brazilian has been a bright spark this term, but when he doesn’t play well the team tend to struggle.

The striker was linked with a £25 million move to the Toffees back in October by The Mirror, who claimed there had been tactical disagreements between him and Claude Puel.

 

In December, Vardy admitted that the Frenchman’s tactics didn’t suit his game, leading to speculation he could leave.

Ironically, he scored the game after giving that interview in a 1-0 win over Chelsea, and then again against Everton.

The ex-England international would make a world of difference to Everton’s team.

Despite his advancing years he still appears to have a frightening turn of pace. His movement and intelligence to find space would improve Everton significantly.

Tosun, Calvert-Lewin and Oumar Niasse have all shown to lack consistency, but Vardy is generally a reliable, top Premier League striker.

He has also proven what a fine finisher he still is.
