Leicester are represented in the latest Premier League team of the week that has been selected by BBC pundit Garth Crooks.

Actually Garth is now down as a ‘Football Analyst’ these days, a posh term for a pundit then!

The performance by Jamie Vardy in Leicester’s one nil victory over Crystal Palace at the weekend at the King Power Stadium was enough to earn them a place in the side alongside the other, in the opinion of the former Spurs striker anyway, most impressive performers in the topflight over the latest weekend.

I think we’ll already know ourselves, and not just based on the latest performance, why Crooks, we’ll also not argue with it, selected Vardy as part of his team but explaining his choice he told the BBC.

‘The Leicester City fans are singing, ‘Jamie Vardy is having a party’. Well, if scoring in seven consecutive games and hitting 10 goals so far this season is anything to go by then it’s one hell of a party. In the meantime, Vardy and his Leicester team-mates will continue rocking their way through the weekend – probably to the sound of Kasabian with a few pizzas thrown in by manager Claudio Ranieri.’

It’s always good to see us represented in this way, and well played to Vardy for his recognition, but the most important thing about the weekend was of course the three points.

Full Team:

Petr Cech (Arsenal), Kyle Walker (Tottenham), Laurent Koscielny (Arsenal), James Tomkins (West Ham), Aaron Cresswell (West Ham), Andre Ayew (Swansea), Mesut Ozil (Arsenal), Dimitri Payet (West Ham), Jamie Vardy (Leicester), Odion Ighalo (Watford), Harry Kane (Tottenham).
