'Leicester City striker is as annoying as Wales legend' - Martin Keown

Former Cardiff City star and Wales international Craig Bellamy's irritable streak has been cloned in Jamie Vardy.

Leicester City sealed their greatest ever performance throughout their entire 130 year history on Sunday, September 21 as the Filbert Way club outfoxed Manchester United by a 5-3 score.

Leicester City may have won a hat-trick of League Cup titles and even finished runners-up for the English title in 1929 but, according to former great Gary Lineker, it is the humbling of United on Sunday that must live long in Blue Army memory.

Many of the home players proved their cunning against United, with strong performances from Leonardo Ulloa, who now has five goals from five appearances for his new club, and legendary midfielder Esteban Cambiasso, whose memorable debut performance in the Premier League was punctuated with a goal and a dominance in the middle of the park.

Jamie Vardy, though, was City's finest Fox as he earned a penalty, tormented Manchester United's rearguard, supplied two assists and, of course, got on the score-sheet himself.

Commenting in his Daily Mail column, Martin Keown likened Vardy to former Cardiff City, Newcastle United and Liverpool forward Craig Bellamy.

"Vardy was a bit like Craig Bellamy — annoying to play against but outstanding!"
