Jamie Vardy hails Danny Drinkwater: He suits my game perfectly

Surely the time has come to boot Mahrez off spot-kick duties. He missed two last season in games that were drawn and is not convincing.

This was more like Leicester and the only blot on things was keeper Kasper Schmeichel pulling up with a persistent hernia problem which he’ll have surgery on today.

Swans boss Francesco Guidolin hadn’t seen Vardy ‘live’ before and admits it’s quite a scary sight.

Guidolin said: “He’s not only fast, but technically and tactically clever. He will cause problems for opponents in the Champions League.

“He is an international player and very, very strong. We can’t complain at the result – Leicester were better than us.”
