Roy Hodgson

Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson has a very simple explanation for the huge downturn in Leicester City’s fortunes in the new year calendar year and that is lack of goals from their talismanic striker Jamie Vardy. Leicester City has not recorded a win since the football has started and have also dropped out of the FA cup after a quarter-final loss to Chelsea. Vardy has only scored once since Christmas and that has coincided with lack of wins for Leicester.

Roy Hodgson said “What people call form can boil down to very, very simple matters, When they [City] were in form, a large part of that was Jamie Vardy scoring. In his last few games, Jamie hasn’t scored many goals. Perhaps that lack of form is Jamie not finding the net. Often when we discuss these matters, it can be pinpointed to a very simple thing – a very important player missing or very important goalscorer not scoring the amount of goals [he was]. They’re a good team, There’s no doubt about that. The fact is they might not have won their last couple of games but the season is always going to contain ups and downs, periods where you pick up points, and periods where things don’t go so well and other teams catch you up. They do have some very, very good players, they’ve been well managed by Brendan [Rodgers] as well, and with six games to go they’ve got everything to play for with a Champions League place. I look forward to every game, in particular now because there was a scare we wouldn’t be playing. It’s a nice place to go and play, and they are a very good footballing team who ask lots of questions of you. As far as I’m concerned, it’s another game in these last six games we’ve got left and I look forward to it, going to a lovely stadium to play a good team.”
