Vardy linked up with Kelechi Iheanacho, starting his first league game this season to open the scoring after 20 minutes.

Iheanacho added the Foxes’ second from close range as the visitors looked to have taken control before the break, only for Villa captain Jack Grealish to whip an effort into the bottom corner on the stroke of half-time.

Jonny Evans and Vardy scored the last two goals of the game.

Leicester remain second in the top flight, but now have a six-point advantage over Manchester City after Pep Guardiola’s side were beaten by Manchester United on Saturday.
