Leicester City: Vardy terrorises Sheffield United in ruthless victory

Leicester City turned in one of their most impressive performances of the season on Sunday by dismissing relegation-bound Sheffield United 5-0.

It was a stunning afternoon for the Foxes as they displayed a lethal and cutting edge to continually slice through their visitors.

Kelechi Iheanacho was, of course, the star of the show, securing his first-ever Premier League hat-trick with a perfect performance.

However, despite not managing to get his name on the scoresheet, as he has done in three out of his previous four appearances against the Blades, it was still a supremely impressive showing from Foxes’ frontman Jamie Vardy.

All afternoon, his constant running and hassling caused problems for the Championship-bound Sheffield United.

Without Vardy, Iheanacho would unlikely have scored his treble, with the 34-year-old twice setting up the Nigerian with perfect, low crosses to power home. As well as the two assists, the Englishman also contributed a further two key passes, more than anyone else in the game, according to WhoScored.

His afternoon was not done there though as he forced his low shot in off of Ethan Ampadu late in the game to round off a resounding win for the Foxes.

Despite the fact that Vardy only had 21 passes throughout the entire match, so many of them being vital highlights his stunning showing.

The former England forward may also have felt extremely unlucky to have not scored throughout the game. He had five shots throughout the 90 minutes, with just treble scorer Iheanacho having more, getting three on target.

However, each time he fired at goal, he was denied by Blades stopper Aaron Ramsdale, leaving him on 14 strikes in all competitions for the season.

Despite having now just scored once in his last 12 Premier League games, more performances like this from Vardy for the remainder of the campaign will surely set the Foxes firmly on the road to the UEFA Champions League.
