Everton 0-1 Leicester: Jamie Vardy strikes to hand Foxes victory

Jamie Vardy was in no hurry to leave the pitch. He shuffled slowly to the sidelines after being substituted, shaking hands with his team-mates before turning to applaud Leicester's exultant fans.

2019 had started in the best possible manner for Vardy, with a goal and a somersault for good measure, so who could blame for wanting to savour the moment? All around Goodison Park, however, Evertonians were in a hurry, darting for the exits after another wretched day.

Vardy's seventh goal of the season had proved decisive and completed what has been a hugely successful Christmas period for Claude Puel, who has masterminded wins over Chelsea and Manchester City to go with this flattening of Everton.
