He put Leicester City 2-1 and 3-2 up scoring either side of Danny Welbeck’s equaliser, he saw the team lead 3-2 until the dying minutes of the match at Emirates, but still… same story, just like last year, just like the year before that.
This has happened to us the last three seasons here. We put ourselves in a commanding position and a few lapses in concentration have cost us
Jamie Vardy told Sky Sports, after the Foxes’ 4-3 defeat at Arsenal. Indeed, last season, it was a Robert Huth 86th-minute own goal that cost Leicester City a 1-0 defeat, while the season before that, Vardy himself had put the Foxes in the lead with a penalty kick, only to see Arsenal come back and win the game with a Danny Welbeck added-time goal.
We had quite a few chances. Unfortunately they didn’t go in but we can take a lot of positives. Scoring three goals away from home is a positive and we’ll get back on the training field to make sure we sort the problems out
the England international said, confident that the team will learn from their mistakes at Emirates.
Another positive that Vardy didn’t mention, is that he scored twice himself. In last season’s Premier League, two goals was his anything but impressive tally until mid December, and now he has already two goals to his name after just 90 minutes.
