Even at the ripe old age of 33, Jamie Vardy again looks set to have a prolific season for Leicester City.

Brendan Rodgers backed Jamie Vardy to repeat his goalscoring exploits from last season after the Golden Boot victor started with a double in Leicester's 3-0 win at West Brom.

Last season's Golden Boot victor will now hope to continue his impressive display for Leicester when they host their next Premier League fixture against Burnley next weekend.

Even with a short break between the campaigns, Vardy showed no sign of weariness in Leicester's season opener at the Hawthorns.

A brace from Jamie Vardy, both goals from the penalty spot, and Timothy Castagne's opener gave Leicester the ideal start.

Vardy not only went past Drogba's record, but he has also scored in all five away PL appearances versus West Brom.

There certainly was a similarity to the Dutch striker's pinpoint penalty kick-taking in Varda's spot kicks.

"He's been brilliant. He's only trained a couple of days with us and you've seen with his performance, he's got loads of qualities and to be coming in at the back post like that", said Vardy.

Speaking after the game, Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers was full of praise for his veteran striker.

"He's a box player". Whether from a cross or penalty he's got the eye to score.

Vardy appears to have already vindicated his decision to retire from worldwide football to prolong his club career.

"Any team would want him".

For Albion, back in the Premier League after two years, it was a reminder of exactly what they face if they want to survive.
