Leicester’s Jamie Vardy took just 20 minutes to take his side 1-0 up in their game against Aston Villa on Sunday, and that’s now the eighth Premier League game in a row where he’s managed to find the net. Fans thought he was a god after the title-winning season, but he’s refreshed that status by returning to his electric goalscoring form.
Will Jamie Vardy break his own goalscoring record?
Bank on it
He'll fall short
Last month Brendan Rodgers warned that the 32-year-old’s best form is yet to come, and he wasn’t wrong. He’s now fired the Foxes six points clear of champions Manchester City and appears to be the only man capable of stopping Liverpool from clinching their first Premier League title. They now sit eight points behind the Reds after 16 games played.
Leicester’s official Twitter account posted the news of Vardy’s goal and fans were predictably full of admiration for their living legend. The club captioned their goal graphic with “IT’S THAT MAN AGAINNNNNN!!!! 1-0 to City!!!!” and the supporters replied with just as much enthusiasm. There were even calls for him to have a statue.
