Home Game Vardy's 100th PL goal helps Foxes past Palace

Vardy’s 100th PL goal helps Foxes past Palace

Jamie Vardy netted his 100th Premier League goal as Leicester kept their hold on third place with a 3-0 win over Crystal Palace.

Vardy could not have wished for an easier goal to secure his ton, with a dreadful mistake from Mamadou Sakho gifting the ball to Harvey Barnes, who squared for him to net just his third goal of 2020, before doubling his tally on the break in injury time with the finish of a man finally feeling confident again.

His goals added to Kelechi Iheanacho’s opener four minutes after the break, from Youri Tielemans’ inviting low cross, which should have been dealt with by a hesitant Vicente Guaita before the Nigerian striker tapped home his second goal in four days.

Crystal Palace struggled to test Kasper Schmeichel as their run of defeats was extended to three, while the Foxes kept their fate in their own hands with a first win since the restart, which guarantees they will end the weekend in third place.
