First win for Leicester
London: Jamie Vardy scored his first goal of the season to help champions Leicester record their first win with a 2-1 victory over Swansea in very wet conditions.
The England striker fired in off the post from Danny Drinkwater’s ball before Wes Morgan volleyed in from a right-wing corner after the break. Leicester’s Riyad Mahrez had a penalty saved by Lukasz Fabianski, who also blocked Shinji Okazaki’s follow-up. Swansea pulled one back when Leroy Fer headed in from Modou Barrow’s cross. How these players managed to produce a good show in relentless torrential rain is remarkable. Heavy rain coupled with thunder and lightning added an extra dimension to proceedings, which Leicester coped with better than their opponents. Vardy, who barely had a sniff of a chance in the opening two league games, gave Claudio Ranieri’s side the lead with a very typical Leicester goal. One-touch football on the edge of their own
