A Jamie Vardy hat-trick, as well as solitary efforts from James Maddison and Youri Tielemans, booked the Foxes' third consecutive Premier League victory at the start of 2020/21 on Sunday.

After delivering such an impressive performance against Pep Guardiola's title challengers at Etihad Stadium, Leicester return to King Power Stadium to tackle West Ham this weekend.

Schmeichel, 33, was delighted by the clinical nature of City's performance in Manchester and called upon his team-mates to use that result as a springboard for their season.

"It's definitely something to build on," the three-time Danish Footballer of the Year told LCFC TV at full-time. "We go into every single game looking to win.


A Tactically Disciplined Performance, Says Schmeichel

Goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel praised his outfield colleagues following Leicester City's fantastic 5-2 victory at Manchester City on Sunday.

"Today we had to change the way we play a little bit and be very, very disciplined and we were getting ready for a really hard shift.

"It was hard work out there for the boys and I actually didn't have that much to do because they were great in front.

"We were clinical when we had the chances. We probably could have had more, maybe, but a very, very tactically disciplined performance."

While Schmeichel, who wore the captains' armband at Etihad Stadium, says the Foxes must limit the occasions they go behind in games, he insists they will remain level-headed.

"Obviously that's something that we need to work on," he added. "When you know this group, we don't get carried away. It's a decent start, but we have to back it up next week."

The Foxes' No.1 was also pleased to see Daniel Amartey made his first Premier League start for the Club since October 2018 and praised the Ghana international for his performance.

"Incredible," Schmeichel said, discussing Amartey's exploits in Manchester. "Having followed his journey from such a horrific injury and the persistence... the determination to come back.

"To come in and play Arsenal and Manchester City and play as well as he has done is a huge testament to him as a guy. We've missed him in the dressing room on matchdays.

"You know, our medical staff deserve huge credit. They've worked so hard with him for so long and he's never given up hope and he's a great guy and we're just really happy to have him back."
