Vardy scores brace and goes past Drogbas goal tally

Two goals from Vardy and a strike from Timothy Castagne ensured Leicester defeated West Brom at the Hawthorns Stadium.

Vardy, with the two goals, not has as many Premier League goals as Didier Drogba (104), having played 43 fewer games.

The former England global will turn 34 in January, but Rodgers believes his conditioning will ensure he has another big season.

'There are many top strikers at this level but any team would want someone like him in there, ' Rodgers said. He is super cool, clinical, he's still got pace and running ability. It's a great start for him to score two goals and very good for the team. With top-quality players, it doesn't matter what they have done in the past, or how much money they earn. Jamie trains well, he works intensely and he is a natural goalscorer who is still quick.

Not least because the Supreme Court of Canada's decision was "universally condemned" by legal scholars and health economists, she said.

Bilic added: 'I was really pleased with how we played until their goal but the biggest disappointment was our reaction to the first goal. He's a player I've known for a number of years, he will run all day and looks to get in the box.

Vardy became the Premier League's oldest Golden Boot victor after finishing the 2019/2020 season with 23 goals, one more than nearest challengers Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Danny Ings.

Right-back Castagne headed in a smartly hoisted cross from Dennis Praet for the 56th-minute breakthrough goal, before Vardy was brought down by Kyle Bartley and slotted his first penalty low into the left corner.

Slaven Bilic's side secured automatic promotion last season and have completed the signing of winger Grady Diangana from West Ham.
