More on this story...

Vardy rounded off the scoring in a 2-0 victory at AMEX Stadium, taking his tally to 19 for the season for club and country.

The former Fleetwood Town man has been vital to the Foxes’ Premier League success in recent years and ranks highly among some of Club’s most talented players, past and present.

His goalscoring exploits, lung-busting runs and entertaining displays have endeared him to the Blue Army and after reaching double figures for a third consecutive season, Vardy’s attacking statistics are to be applauded.

Opening His 2017/18 Account

The frontman scores his first of the season against Arsenal at Emirates Stadium in August.

The striker opened his 2017/18 account with a brace against Arsenal in August and his form continued throughout September with three more goals. Five consecutive strikes across January and February were then followed up by three goals in March. His 50th top-flight effort in City colours came against Manchester United in December, while 57 Premier League goals in total during his Foxes career sees him sit 20 clear of Riyad Mahrez in second.

Half Century For Vardy

Jamie Vardy scores his 50th Premier League goal for Leicester City.

If Vardy is in range, he will not hesitate to pull the trigger. He has had the second-highest amount of efforts on goal by a City player this season, with only Algeria star Mahrez having more attempts. With 269 shots in total across four terms – 128 of those on target – the frontman boasts a shooting accuracy of 48 per cent.

A Delicate Finish Against Spurs

The No.9 lifts an effort over Hugo Lloris during the victory over Tottenham Hotspur in November.

Vardy has started every game he has been involved in for the Foxes this term, missing only one fixture for his side. His 135 Premier League appearances for the Club is bettered only by legends Muzzy Izzet (222), Matt Elliott (199), Robbie Savage (172), Steve Guppy (161) and Neil Lennon (155). Reinforcing his impact this season, of the 30 appearances he has made, City have lost only a third of those games.
