Jamie Vardy's wonder strike helped Leicester send out a title warning as they breezed past Liverpool 2-0.

The striker's brilliant brace maintained the Foxes' three-point lead over Manchester City - ahead of their top-of-the-table showdown on Saturday.

In front of the watching England boss Roy Hodgson the 29-year-old netted a stunning 25-yard effort before firing in from close range to continue his stellar campaign.

Vardy is in talks with City to extend his deal and reached 18 Barclays Premier League goals for the season to underline his importance to Claudio Ranieri and help prove outstanding Leicester's title credentials.

"We not getting carried away, but this was an important results," said Vardy.

"I spotted that their keeper was off his line for most of the game, so when it came to me I had to have a go. I don't think I've scored too many better goals than that."

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp was less than enthused about his side's efforts against Leicester, as he was clearly fuming during his post match interviews.

"I’m not too fine with our game today. We could have played much better," stated Klopp.

"We had a few shots where we could pass and a few passes where we could shoot. We created half chances but not real chances.

"It was a world-class goal from Jamie Vardy. Today would have been a good day to show we are ready for this. I need a few more seconds to calm down. I have to watch it again."
