Leicester City has shown great resilience in the opening nine games of the season. Jamie Vardy scored twice to secure a point against Southampton on Saturday.
The Foxes fell behind 2-0 after 37 minute after goals by Jose Fonte and Virgil van Djik for Southampton. But Claudio Ranieri’s men came back in the second half to salvage a point thanks to a brace by striker Jamie Vardy. Vardy now leads the Premier League scoring race with seven goals in nine games.
“I’m very happy because our spirit is amazing,” Ranieri told Foxes Player HD. “We have a very good spirit and we played very well but in the first half we were down two goals from the set pieces.
“Sometimes you can do nothing against a player who is taller than you. Maybe you can be a little smarter but they were taller and the second goal was maybe offside. But it’s OK. We played well and we were desperate to come back in the match.
“After the first goal we made a very fantastic finish. They had the counter attack but we covered very well and we created enough chances to win the match.
“I told them with our spirit anything could be possible. For me if we lose 2-0, 3-0 or 4-0, nothing happens but I want to see us fight until the end. Then it’s important to score a goal because the opponent is under pressure and we’ll have nothing to lose in this moment.”
Leicester sits in 5th place with 16 points, one point behind West Ham United in 4th.
