1) Jamie Vardy isn’t firing on all cylinders… Yet…
Up against the side that he turned down this summer, Jamie Vardy came out with a point to prove. Not only did the Premier League sensation need to prove that he made the right choice this summer, but he also has a point to prove following a disappointing Euro 2016 campaign and a poor display last weekend against Hull.
However, Vardy failed to do so. With two ‘big chances’ (chances that you would expect the player to score from) already to his name in two games this season, he has mustered just four shots on target, and none of them have been on target. Against Hull, many labelled Vardy’s performance as one of the reasons why the Foxes did not win, and that could be the case again today.
Up against the Gunners, he was more active, attempting five dribbles, compared to just one last weekend, though only one was successful. Vardy is an integral part of this Leicester side, as their clear top scorer last season, and Claudio Ranieri will need him back firing on all cylinders if they are to mount any kind of title defence.
