Jamie Vardy is expecting to take part in an open and entertaining game when Leicester City travel to Arsenal on Sunday.

Claudio Ranieri’s Premier League leaders head into the game flying high following their impressive 3-1 victory at Manchester City last weekend.

The Foxes are currently five points ahead of second-placed Tottenham and third-placed Arsenal heading into Sunday’s showdown at The Emirates.

Vardy is well aware of the attacking threat posed by Arsenal following the Gunners’ 5-2 win at the King Power Stadium earlier this season.

However, the striker is confident that City have what it takes to get a result against Arsene Wenger’s men and underline their status as genuine title contenders.

“No doubt it will be tough, we know the players they’ve got are world class but although we lost 5-2 when we played them last time we did show that we can hurt them,” said Vardy, speaking at the launch of the latest FIFA Ultimate Team 16 Winter Upgrades.

“I think it’ll be a matter of us tightening up a bit defensively which, as we’ve seen, we’ve kept a lot of clean sheets recently. It’s going to be a good, entertaining game.”

Vardy has been one of the Premier League’s standout performers this season, with the 29-year-old having scored 18 goals and made three assists in 25 top-flight games so far this term.
