Claudio Ranieri hopes Jamie Vardy will be protected by referees

Jamie Vardy could be a marked man after his fine 2015-16 season

Leicester boss Claudio Ranieri has urged referees to protect Jamie Vardy as he feels the striker is now a marked man.

The England forward will lead the line for the Premier League champions when they start their title defence at Hull on Saturday, after rejecting a move to Arsenal and signing a new Foxes deal in the summer.

Vardy scored 24 goals last season as Leicester claimed their first title in surprise fashion by 10 points after being 5,000/1 to win the league at the start.
