Flop: Jamie Vardy

Vardy was nowhere to be seen

Talking of scorers, Vardy has gone off the rails since the winner against Everton a month ago. Not that he's been particularly on song this season, but his contributions since then has dramatically declined. In fact, his only involvement in attack thereafter has been assisting Demarai Gray during the 4-3 loss to Wolves.

And he was no better today too. Vardy had the least touches on the ball compared to all other outfield players in the match and also completed only 67 percent of his passes. He could muster only two shots on target, though the second one, an overhead kick, was eye-catching and denied only by the brilliance of David De Gea.

Perhaps, that was the only moment where the former England striker looked threatening in actuality. Else, he was anonymous; cutting a forlorn figure in the attacking third. His poor form has forced the Foxes to look for goals elsewhere, as six of their last eight goals in the Premier League have come from either defenders or midfielders.
