LEICESTER boss Brendan Rodgers hailed "dream" striker Jamie Vardy after his double downed Cherries.

The forward's brace earned the Foxes a comfortable 3-1 home win.

Callum Wilson's first goal of the season levelled for Bournemouth in the first half before Youri Tielemans' restored Leicester's advantage.

Victory moved the unbeaten hosts to eight points from four games and Rodgers praised Vardy's impact.

He said: "He was (unplayable) today. Obviously he is a dream to work with, he's a player who can make a difference in this league.

"For a manager and a coach it's amazing. He showed his quality, not just in his goals but if you look how hard he works, how he sets the team off and his hunger - everyone follows behind him.

"It was an amazing performance by him and the team showed their intensity."

Rodgers added: "Bournemouth came to win the game. Eddie Howe's team are always offensive.

"The other teams sat on the edge of their 18-yard box so obviously space is limited and it's very difficult."
