Jamie Vardy plunders Crystal Palace to become Leicester's man of the century

It was a struggle, for a long time it wasn’t hugely convincing, but it was a win – and given how things have been going recently for Leicester, that is the most important thing. There must be encouragement too in the fact the goals came from Kelechi Iheanacho and Jamie Vardy, neither of whom have been prolific of late, even if it required Crystal Palace errors to set them on their way.It’s three years since Iheanacho joined from Manchester City but his 49th-minute strike was only his ninth in the league for them. That he got the opener does not mean the 23-year-old is back to anything like his best. At one point in the first half, he led a dangerous break only to run down an alley that was less blind than invisible, eventually petering into indecision despite no defender getting close to him. And it was perhaps significant that as Brendan Rodgers added a midfielder to try to close the game down just after the hour, it was Iheanacho who was withdrawn.
