Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers has praised striker Jamie Vardy after his brilliant performance against Sheffield United.

were on the verge of a fifth game that could not gain 3 points. However,

's late goal made it 2-1 for Rodger's side. With this victory, Leicester reached the third place in the table, and despite the shaky results in recent weeks, they have a strong position in the table. After the game, Brendan Rodgers praised the English striker and his goal.

“It was very important for us,” Rodgers said. “It might be the longest period since I’ve been here that we haven’t won, but if not it’s certainly felt the longest.

“We haven’t performed so well (of late). But we knew coming back to the Premier League it was going to be tough, and our performance was very good.

“Our combination and movement was very good and we didn’t have too many scares.

“It is important. We’re not used to losing. I thought it was a win we very much deserved but it was always going to be tight. If you look at their record, seven of their games have been decided by a single goal.

“But I thought we thoroughly deserved it. We hit the post a couple of times, we defended well when we had to. We were probing, getting around their 18-yard box, but we just needed that final pass and it came late on.”
