The former England striker claimed that he is quite enjoying seeing Leicester win every weekend in the Championship. The 62-year-old admitted that he was a big fan of Vardy’s celebration, highlighting it as his moment of the weekend’s footballing action.

“I know I’m a little bit biased but I’m going to go with Jamie Vardy [as my moment of the weekend],” said Lineker, via the Rest Is Football podcast.

“He scored a penalty for Leicester, it was 1-0.

“Top of the Championship, it’s so much fun in the Championship I have to say.

“He scored the goal, and he’s obviously getting stick from the Bristol fans, I think about his wife, as every game I’ve ever been to at Leicester does from the opposing fans.

“And he ran a little bit like, remember [Emmanuel] Adebayor, he ran the whole length of the pitch and gave it to the Bristol City travelling supporters.

“Classic Vardy.

“Bit of banter, really.”

Leicester have earned 21 points from a possible 24 and lead the Championship table by goal difference.

The gap to third place is just one point, highlighting how close it is in the battle for the automatic promotion places at the moment.

It is still so early in the season that Leicester will be focused on getting weekly results without thinking too much about the table.

Maresca’s side have now won their last three league games in a row, as they target automatic promotion straight back to the Premier League at the first attempt.

Next up for the Foxes is a midweek clash in the EFL Cup against top flight side Liverpool at Anfield on Wednesday night.

This season, how has Jamie Vardy done for Leicester City?

Vardy has made eight Championship appearances for Leicester this season.

With only three starts, the experienced forward has produced two goals and one assist.

Maresca is managing his minutes, since the experienced striker is no longer capable of playing 90 minutes in every game.

Vardy remains an important member of the first team squad, particularly given his level of experience.

However, he is no longer the team’s guaranteed starting striker, with Kelechi Iheanacho, Patson Daka, and Tom Cannon all fighting for the spot in Maresca’s side.
