The Foxes striker netted twice to see off Liverpool at the King Power as Claudio Ranieri’s men kept their unlikely title challenge on course with a 2-0 win
Letting fly: Vardy tries his luck from range – and it comes off
Jamie Vardy scored the greatest goal of his life to maintain Leicester‘s incredible title challenge.
And team-mate Danny Drinkwater says the Foxes now believe they can make history by winning the Premier League.
Vardy, who opened the scoring with a superb long-range volley, said: â€œI donâ€™t think Iâ€™ve ever scored anything better than that. But a goal is a goal and more importantly itâ€™s a win for the club.
â€œTo be honest Iâ€™d spotted that the Liverpool goalie (Simon Mignolet) was quite far off his line so when the ball bounced up for me I decided to give it a go.â€
Drinkwater, a key man in the Foxesâ€™ title challenge insists they can complete their fairy story.
â€œWe wonâ€™t stop believing,â€ he said. â€œWeâ€™re staying grounded, but if we carry on the way we are, then why not have the belief to win it? It would go down in history surely.â€
Vardy, who has been offered an Â£80,000-a-week new contract by Leicester, went on: â€œIâ€™d like to be here for a long time.
â€œYouâ€™ve seen how we are. Weâ€™ll be back on the training field and looking towards Manchester City on Saturday.â€
Leicester visit their title rivals Manchester City and Arsenal in their next two games and manager Claudio Ranieri shrugged off any championship talk, saying: â€œOur focus is on Manchester City.
â€œIâ€™m very, very pleased with my players. We are free of pressure. The players have a good feeling.â€
â€œThe first goal was fantastic. It was an unbelievable pass from Riyad Mahrez and it was unbelievable what Vardy did.
â€œHe watched the ball arriving, watched the opponent and watched the keeper. He looked at the keeper out of the goal and hit it. It was unbelievable, amazing, fantastic.â€
Defeat virtually ended Liverpoolâ€™s lingering top-four hopes and boss Jurgen Klopp was unhappy with their display.
â€œIt was nice to be in the stadium when Jamie Vardy scored the goal of the month, but not when you are the manager of the other team!â€ he said.
â€œI donâ€™t feel too good at this moment. We could have played much better.
“I think our plan was good. We had time on the ball, we had opportunities in their box, but we didnâ€™t make the right decision often enough.â€
