Jamie Vardy has been on fire this season, there’s no doubting that! With 11 Premier League goals in as many games, he finds himself at the summit of the Top Scorers chart ahead of Watford’s Odion Ighalo, and his own Leicester City team-mate Riyad Mahrez (both on 7 goals). With Leicester sitting in 3rd place at the moment, 3 points behind Arsenal and leaders, Manchester City, this could shape up to be a stellar season for the Sheffield-born striker.
Can Vardy become the first Englishman to top the Premier League top scorers chart since Kevin Phillips claimed the Golden Boot with his 30 goals for Sunderland 16 years ago in the 1999/2000 season? Or will his red-hot form cool down by next May? In those 16 seasons, Englishmen have finished second on the chart 7 times, could that happen to Vardy too? One thing’s for sure, at the moment, with his goal-a-game average and the poor form of world-class strikers such as Sergio Agüero and Wayne Rooney, Vardy has a genuine chance at topping the chart!
