West Bromwich Albion 2-3 Leicester City – Premier League

Jamie Vardy scored in an eighth consecutive Premier League game to give Leicester City victory over West Bromwich Albion in a five-goal thriller on my first ever visit to the Hawthorns.

The hosts had taken a first-half lead through Salomon Rondon’s header but a Riyad Mahrez brace and Vardy’s 11th of season gave the visitors a deserved 3-1 lead. Substitute Rickie Lambert converted a late penalty to set up an exciting finish, but the Baggies couldn’t find an equaliser and it was Leicester who took home the points to move up to third in the table.
