Leicester v Chelsea: Jamie Vardy predicted Arsene Wenger’s downfall

Leicester v Chelsea

One of the big matches in the Premier League on a huge Saturday of action sees Leicester take on Chelsea.

The two recent Premier League champions have been busy doing business with one another in recent seasons.

In the past two summers, Chelsea have signed Leicester’s two star central midfielders.

N’Golo Kante joined the Pensioners last summer, while Danny Drinkwater left Leicester last week on transfer deadline day.

Will Drinkwater make his Chelsea debut at Leicester?

Jamie Vardy on Arsenal

Ahead of the Chelsea game, Leicester striker Jamie Vardy has given an excellent interview with the Times.

Vardy started the season on fire with a brace in a 4-3 defeat at Arsenal.

A little over a year ago, Arsenal tried to sign Vardy from Leicester, but the England international opted against joining the Gunners.

Vardy has now opened up to the Times about Arsenal’s approach, and why he decided to stay at the King Power Stadium.

He’s claimed the writing was on the wall for Arsenal’s current malaise:

I’m a bit of a psycho [psychic] — I could see the little downfall they’re on now.

Football was the main thing [reasons for not going to Arsenal], Leicester were also in the Champions League, but moving the family when I’d just bought a house would have been a laugh — not. I’m pleased with the decision I made. Turning down Arsenal doesn’t mean I wouldn’t look at another offer.

I want to win as much as possible, I don’t want to only have one Premier League medal in my drawer at home — it would be an empty glass cabinet.

I’m contracted to Leicester and we’ll see how high we can go. Down the road, there might be an opportunity to go to the MLS or China.

It would be something I’d like to experience. I know it’ll involve moving the family again but it’ll give them a different experience to see different cultures.

The Next Jamie Vardy will be shown on Sky One on September 16.
