LONDON, December 20
Jamie Vardy scored Leicester City’s opening goal and had a hand in the other as the Foxes earned an impressive 2-0 win at Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League.
Vardy netted a penalty on the stroke of halftime and his 59th-minute header led to Toby Alderweireld’s own goal to lift Leicester two places up to second on 27 points from 14 games, four behind champions and leaders Liverpool.
Tottenham dropped two places down to fourth after a second successive defeat, having suffered a 2-1 loss at Liverpool, with their display against Leicester leaving a lot to be desired.
On Saturday, Liverpool beat Crystal Palace 7-0, while Arsenal lost 2-1 at Everton. Manchester City got back to winning ways with a 1-0 victory at in-form Southampton. Juergen Klopp’s Liverpool had not won away from home in the league since September but broke that dry spell in spectacular fashion, recording their biggest-ever top flight away win. — Reuters
