Jamie Vardy: These two Leicester City players were brilliant against Southampton

King Power Stadium - Stormy

Leicester City came back from 2-0 down to draw with Southampton at the weekend.

Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy has called Riyad Mahrez and Nathan Dyer 'brilliant' on the club's official website, after the pair came on at half-time to change their match against Southampton on Saturday.

Leicester went into the break 2-0 down at St. Mary's, but they stormed back in the second period to claim a point.

Vardy scored both of the Foxes' goals, and took most of the headlines, but the striker was keen to deflect some of the praise onto his teammates for their vital contributions. 

“The boss just said we looked like we were sitting off a bit and we needed to be pushing higher up and getting in their faces," Vardy revealed. "We made the changes at half time – Riyad [Mahrez] set one up and Nathan [Dyer] set one up just before that so the impact they made was brilliant. We were just on top all second half."

Leicester have made a habit of coming from behind this season and, as a result, they have made a hugely impressive start to the campaign.

Claudio Ranieri's side are currently sat in fifth place in the Premier League table, and they have still lost just one game all season.

One of the major reasons behind this has been Vardy's form, as the striker has netted nine times in his opening nine appearances. 

However, without the service provided by the likes of Dyer and Mahrez, he wouldn't have been so prolific, and he will hope that his teammates can continue to create chances for him as the season progresses.
