Brendan Rodgers backs Vardy to end goal drought

Sat 27 February 2021 | 17:27

Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers has urged Jamie Vardy to end his goal drought ahead of Leicester's clash with Arsenal.

Vardy

has netted five goals in his last four games against the Gunners but has struggled since the start of the New Year with only one goal in 11 games.

"You saw in the game (against Arsenal) when he came off the bench for the last half an hour he was sensational.

"He will always disrupt defenders' balance. He hasn't quite got the service but we've still been winning - that's important - and it's not down to just Jamie to score the goals. The contribution has to come from the team.

"He's the type of striker who relies on service, in terms of his movement as well and making more runs.

"He is a player who needs the service and when you have so many players out - the guys who can serve him - it makes it a little more difficult for him."
