It wasn’t a very good first-half for Leicester City and, in particular, Jamie Vardy.
He may have scored 24 goals in the Premier League last season, but in his first 45 minutes of the new season, he looked as though he’d never scored a goal in his life.
Not once, but twice, Vardy fluffed his lines when given the perfect opportunity to give the champions the lead.
First, new signing Ahmed Musa pulled the ball back for the England striker only for him to totally miss the ball. Take a look at his terrible effort below:
Then, Musa was the provider again later on in the half, providing him with the perfect opportunity in the box.
This time, Vardy did connect with it but blazed it well over. It was all too much for the 29-year-old who punished himself with a rather strong punch to the face.
To make matters even worse for the prolific goalscorer, Vardy’s side then went 1-0 down just minutes later as a combination of Abel Hernandez and Adama Doimande managed to score in first-half injury time.
If Vardy emerges from the break with a black eye, you know exactly why. He’s been punching himself in the changing room.
