Jamie Vardy has had a tough start to the season so far despite scoring 2 goals in 5 games.
His link-up play today with Slimani was fantastic considering this afternoon’s fixture is only the second time they’ve played together.
His role changed today as usually he’s the main threat going forward, being partnered with Shinji Okazaki.
Today he played almost as a playmaker for Slimani, which worked very well however Vardy will be disappointed that he didn’t get on the scoresheet.
A dream start from the Algerian in the Premier League.
He bought the Slimani Show to the King Power today as ‘Super Slim’ bagged himself 2 goals on his Premier League debut.
The pressure was on for the Algerian as he had a relatively tame game midweek against Brugge after being substituted at the hour mark.
The club record signing will be looking to get on the scoresheet again next week as the foxes face giants Chelsea where he’ll be up against Gary Cahill and David Luiz, along with former fox N’Golo Kante, a physical battle that Slimani will love.
