The ESPN FC crew debate if Jamie Vardy's goal for Leicester against Liverpool is the new goal of the season in the EPL.

Jamie Vardy's stunning strike helped Leicester City to a 2-0 win over Liverpool on Tuesday to keep the Foxes top of the Premier League.

Liverpool controlled much of the early action, but it was Leicester's Riyad Mahrez who came closest to breaking the deadlock with a shot from distance that Simon Mignolet had to tip over the bar.

Vardy found the breakthrough on the hour mark against the run of play with an outstanding finish on the half-volley from distance.

And Vardy doubled Leicester's lead 12 minutes later when Shinji Okazaki's shot was blocked but deflected into the box, where Vardy was quick to dink the ball into the top corner.

The ESPN FC crew discuss if Man City's wins over lesser teams will be the reason they finish above Arsenal in the EPL.

Jermaine Defoe very nearly levelled the score just before the break but Joe Hart somehow got down in time to palm the ball out to the side, then scrambled to his feet in time to block Billy Jones' follow-up.

And Anthony Martial made it 2-0 on 23 minutes when Juan Mata found him in acres of space to curl in from 15 yards.
