Leicester City made it eight Premier League wins in a row after beating Aston Villa 4-1 at Villa Park.

Brendan Rodgers’ side solidified their second place position with the win  and are now six points clear of third place Manchester City.

To open the scoring in Leicester’s eighth win on the bounce, it was Jamie Vardy once again, to continue his scoring run and extending it to eight consectutive Premier League games with a goal.

On his first start of the season, Kelechi Iheanacho played the ball through to Vardy, who looked like he had lost the chance before firing it in on the second time of asking.

Iheanacho himself then made it 2-0. After some excellent build-up play, James Maddison sent a cross into the near post which Iheanacho finished superbly.

Villa got got back into the game on the verge of half-time as Leicester failed to clear the ball from a corner, Jack Grealish fired a shot from the edge of the box which took a deflection on it’s way past Kasper Schmeichel.

But the Foxes started the second-half on the front foot and it wasn’t long before they restored their two goal lead.

Jonny Evans scored his first goal of the season with a brilliant header on the end of a Maddison corner.

Leicester’s fourth and final goal came from the leagues top goalscorer when Vardy finished well in typical fashion, after a superb ball from Dennis Praet played the striker through to make it 16 goals in 16 games this season.
