Vardy’s 82nd-minute strike – his 13th goal of the season – doubled City’s lead, following Wes Morgan’s first half opener, and ultimately sealed a third consecutive Premier League win.

Following another assured performance, typified by Leicester’s spirited and dogmatic approach to regaining possession, Vardy, 32, says there is still more work to be done in training.

“That’s exactly what we’ve been working on over these weeks on the training field, but we still know there’s a lot of hard work to do,” he said, speaking at full-time on Saturday.

“Personally I’ve always liked to press as quickly as I can anyway. Now we’ve got the whole team getting on board and I think it puts the opposition under a lot of pressure.”

City’s start to life under Brendan Rodgers’ management, including three victories in four matches, has particularly pleased Vardy.

Now the aim is to continue that over Leicester's remaining six Premier League victories, says the Club’s all-time top Premier League goalscorer.

Rodgers: A Really Good Feeling

Brendan Rodgers spoke with LCFC TV after a positive display to beat the Cherries 2-0 at King Power Stadium on Saturday.

He added: “It’s been great. Obviously with the pressing and the way we’re moving the ball, everything’s quick and fast.

“We’ve got to keep doing that so it’s back to the training field, keep working hard, and obviously put the effort in for next week.

“We’re just delighted that we’ve got the three points and everyone’s happy, but like I say, it’s a lot of hard work now to continue with this.”
