When the whole world witnessed the North London Derby in the English Premier League (EPL) between Tottenham Hotspurs and Arsenal, Leicester City’s sensational striker Jamie Vardy was busy playing Call of Duty at his home. The current Premier League top scorer preferred the first-person shooter game on his PlayStation rather than watching the high-voltage match.
Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal travelled to White Hart Lane with 3 points in their mind. However, things did not fall in place for the Frenchman as Tottenham showed some resilient football to earn a 2-2 draw from the match.
The draw between the title-contenders has left league leaders Leicester City in a fantastic position. Claudio Ranieri’s men now sit five points clear at the top of the table.
“I heard a lot of people saying the results on Wednesday night went in our favor, but I was playing Call of Duty on the PlayStation.” Vardy said, as reported by FourFourTwo.
The Premier League table now sees Leicester leading the title race against the likes of Tottenham, Arsenal and Manchester City. With nine more games to play, Ranieri’s boys look to achieve the impossible.

It has to be noted that Leicester were fighting relegation last season and finished 14th in the Premier League table. Since appointing Ranieri, they have gone on to play some sensational games which makes them title contenders this season.
The 29-year-old Vardy who looks to spearhead England’s attack in the upcoming Euro 2016 in France disclosed an amazing story about a gift the entire Leicester team received from head coach Ranieri in Christmas.
“We all opened it and the next thing we knew everyone was walking around the changing room ringing bells.” Vardy stated.
He mentioned that the 64-year-old Italian manager loves to laugh and joke and the Christmas gift helped to relax the lads. Only time will tell if Leicester can ring their bells all the way to the Premier League title.
