Leicester manager Rodgers claims 'not too many better' than Vardy

Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers says there aren't many better strikers on the fast break than Jamie Vardy.

The 33-year-old scored a late winner to sink Sheffield United at Bramall Lane on Sunday.

"The mark of how you're judged as a team is how you bounce back," Rodgers said.

"We showed confidence and it was a case of at half-time reinforcing a few things and perseverance. We scored a good first goal, defended when needed and it was a great second goal for us and a deserved win.

"James [Maddison] has great vision, he sees a pass so early and he has a relationship with Jamie [Vardy] on the pitch. Jamie, once he's away in that position, there's not too many better."
