With the scores locked at 0-0, the match was looking like an even contest, until Vardy produced a moment of magic.
The England international latched on to a wonderfully weighted pass from Riyad Mahrez, before unleashing a dipping half-volley from 25 yards, which flew over Simon Mignolet and into the back of the net.
It was a simply outstanding effort, which sent the King Power Stadium into delirium and set Leicester on their way to victory.
Vardy would add a second late on in the contest to secure vital three points for his side, as they aim to cause one of the biggest shocks in Premier League history.
Leicester’s win over Liverpool means that they maintain their three point advantage at the top of the table, after a quite remarkable first 24 matches.
With only 14 matches left to go, Claudio Ranieri’s side are genuine title contenders and the entirety of The Foxes’ squad deserves credit for their form this season.
It was Vardy who stole the acclaim last night, however, with Fuchs and Simpson both messaging him on social media site Twitter after the match.
