KEY POINTS

  • Leicester City exhibited dominance against Leeds in the Premier League
  • Manager Brendan Rodgers is happy with his club’s winning performance
  • Jamie Vardy showed all-around effort for the entire game

Leicester City head coach Brendan Rodgers could barely spot a flaw in his team's dominating showing against Leeds United in the English Premier League on Monday.

The Foxes looked a step ahead on all fronts throughout the match, plucking the feathers of the Peacocks from both ends of the field to walk out of Elland Road with the scintillating 4-1 victory.

"I thought my players were brilliant. We had to be tactically disciplined and then play when we had the ball,” Rodgers told BBC.

Youri Tielemans manned the offense for Leicester City, scoring two goals in the lopsided proceeding. Meanwhile, Jamie Vardy posed as a persistent threat on the pitch for the majority of the duel, helping Harvey Barnes to drill the ball within the first two minutes of the opening whistle before joining the spree at the 76th minute.

Vardy became the seventh player in the tournament’s history to haul nine or more consecutive goals on the road since Harry Kane recorded 13 in a row in September 2017.

Leicester City's drubbing of Leeds has been indicative of how outstanding the club has been performing this season. The Rodgers-mentored brigade currently sits at second place in the standings.

The King Power Stadium-based squad has never had a sensational start since the 2000-2001 season.

With Leicester City trying to widen the gap between them and 18 other clubs as they trail behind Liverpool, Rodgers chooses not to rest on their laurels. The manager pointed out that the competition is far from over.

"If we get to March, April and we are in that position (second), then it will be nice, but there is a long way to go,” Rodgers said.

Leicester City is off to a busy week as they face Braga on Thursday in their upcoming Europa League Group G contest. This will be followed by a Premier League match-up versus the Wolverhampton Wanderers on Sunday.
