Sounds like Lindelof had really good game against Vardy and handled him perfectly. Glad someone as biased as you would confirm that. Means a lot to us who are fans of the whole club!If Lindelof is too closed to Vardy, Vardy would made a quick turn or accelerate to get passed him quickly, Lindelof won't stand a chance to cover this. If Lindelof is too far to Vardy, he has no pace to cover the distance as well.
That space he gave to Vardy was the ideal distance for himself to make sure he's quick enough to react & when he does, he equalled Vardy in a foot race for few seconds and then slow Vardy down by hustling him.
