City have collected 39 points from 18 Premier League outings this term, and were beaten for the first time in 12 matches on Saturday, when they suffered a 3-1 reverse at champions Manchester City.

Vardy, who was on target during the clash at Etihad Stadium to take his Premier League tally to 17 for the season, believes the Foxes can cause damage to any side.

“I think we were pretty confident in our ability, but we knew that we had to show that game by game,” Vardy said. “I think at the minute we’re where we deserve to be.

“We just have to go into it the same as any other game. Like I said, we know we’ve got a lot of talent and a lot of ability and we know that we can hurt teams when we’re playing at our best.

The City No.9 scored his 17th Premier League goal of 2019/20 during the clash with Manchester City on Saturday.

“We’re a bit disappointed with the result against Man City, but it’s all about dusting ourselves off now and getting ready for the Liverpool game.”

With a busy festive fixture schedule well underway, Liverpool have also had to contest the 2019 FIFA Club World Cup in Qatar, where they emerged as victors after beating Flamengo in extra-time.  

However, the City No.9 does not believe that Liverpool’s travels will affect their performance levels when they come to Leicester on Thursday

“I don’t think that comes into it at all,” said Vardy of Liverpool’s Club World Cup involvement.

They’ve (Liverpool) been on a plane, and I’m sure the recovery would have been done on the plane, so they’ll be fresh and ready to go. We know we have to be at our best.

“Every professional footballer is obviously prepared to play games no matter where they are.

“They’ve been on a plane, and I’m sure the recovery would have been done on the plane, so they’ll be fresh and ready to go. We know we have to be at our best.”
