Vardy stings you while Mahrez and Albrighton add mystique - Keown rates Leicester attack

Arsenal legend Martin Keown has heaped praise on the attacking prowess of table-toppers Leicester City.

Keown says that Vardy buzzes like a bee in the Foxes' attack while Riyad Mahrez and Marc Albrighton add mystique from both midfield flanks.

He writes in his column for Daily Mail: "Riyad Mahrez and Marc Albrighton work so well as inverted wingers — two-footed wide men who often cut inside.

"Their ability to do this adds real mystique to their play and means that opposition full backs are never sure which direction they're going to run.

"Vardy is like a bee. He buzzes around all game and though he might only have one chance to sting you, he almost always punishes you.

"Nearly all of his goals are lone strikes in games but they have had a huge impact on Leicester's season."
