The evergreen Jamie Vardy made it 14 Premier League goals this season after his penalty helped Leicester City stay second after beating Watford at the King Power Stadium last night.
Will Jamie Vardy break his own goalscoring record?
Bank on it
He'll fall short
Indeed, the former England man was at his clinical best last night as both shots taken against the Hornets hit the target (per WhoScored), with his first-half spot-kick leaving Ben Foster helpless between the posts. While he made the fewest amount of passes than anyone in his team, as well as having the lowest number of touches of any starter, he looks to be phasing into a genuinely top class poacher.
Now, having scored in seven games in a row, fans on Twitter are backing him to break his own impressive goalscoring record this season after such good form under Brendan Rodgers. Famously, Vardy notched in 11 consecutive games during the 2015-16 campaign as the Foxes won the title, though his exploits this time around would suggest reaching that again isn’t out of the realm of possibility.
With Norwich, Manchester City, Liverpool, West Ham and Newcastle United up next, the 32-year-old’s Twitter message following the win saw plenty of fans on Twitter backing him to do it all over again.
It's coming Jamie. We can celebrate in may
