Jamie Vardy Goes Peak Jamie Vardy By Cupping His Ears In Front Of An Empty Hawthorns
Last season's Golden Boot winner started the new Premier League season with a brace in Leicester's 3-0 win over the Baggies and even with no fans in attendance at the Hawthorns, Vardy found a way to rile them up.
After notching his first of two penalties, the former Fleetwood Town man went over to the corner and cupped his ears in the same way he would have if thousands of West Brom supporters were sticking their fingers up at him in anger.
The smug look on his face says everything you need to know about Vardy and his love for taunting the opposition.

It was a familiar situation Vardy found himself in, having scored in all five of his visits to the West Midlands club, who must absolutely hate the sight of him at this point.
Incredibly, Vardy now finds himself on 105 goals in the Premier League - which is more than Chelsea striker Didier Drogba managed despite making more appearances.
But above all else, he loves nothing more than playing pantomime villain and feeds off opposition fans giving him stick. You only have to look at his celebrations mocking Sheffield United and Crystal Palace supporters last term for two brilliant examples.
"I'm a nightmare on the pitch, aren't I?" he told The Guardian in 2018.
"I get abuse from opposition fans and give it back to them. But that's just me - and that's how it should be; it's only a bit of banter. Tottenham's fans last season were singing something about my wife in the jungle, within a minute I scored and they never said a word about me for the rest of the game.
"At West Brom I always go to the same corner after scoring. There was a photo from the season before, the faces are all the same. Their middle fingers are exactly the same."
