Rodgers hails Vardy display
Jamie Vardy's hunger to keep improving marks him out as one of the Premier League's best strikers, Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers says.
Vardy's double in the Foxes' 4-1 win at relegated Huddersfield lifted him level with Gary Lineker in the club's all-time goalscoring charts on 103.
Youri Tielemans opened the scoring at the John Smith's Stadium, with Vardy doubling the lead. An Aaron Mooy penalty reduced the arrears but a free-kick from James Maddison and a Vardy spot-kick gave City the win.
"Gary was obviously a top-class striker for many years but it's been a real joy to work with Jamie, I think from the first evening I met him when I joined," said Rodgers, who has won four straight games after losing his first as Foxes boss.
"He's very hungry to improve and get better, and obviously the style of the team and the impression of the team always helps him.
"You're pressing the game hard when you haven't got it and you're creating opportunities. He's one of the best in this league, he's already proven that, but he's shown the hunger to continue with that."
Regard the overall performance, Rodgers added: "We were really exciting going forward and this was always going to be a tough game for us.
"Obviously, Huddersfield unfortunately were relegated last week so they would want to come home and show a reaction. We got off to a good start. Getting the first goal of the game is important."
