Leicester City's Jamie Vardy has some very impressive stats this season

Leicester City V Man Utd

Seriously, who would have thought Jamie Vardy would be bossing it in 2015?

Okay, hands up you if you ever thought Jamie Vardy would be playing for England and be the leading goalscorer in the Premier League...

Yep, I thought so, no one put their hands up, did they? And for good reason, he doesn't exactly give off the same air of brilliance that the likes of Sergio Aguero or Alexis Sanchez do.

But, you better believe that Vardy – who was playing non-league football for Fleetwood Town just three years ago – will get you a goal when you need it most and so far this season, he's already got nine!

That's three more than the likes of Aguero, Sanchez and Newcastle's Georginio Wijnaldum! Pretty impressive, right? Well, things are about to get even more impressive when we compare him to two of the best around.... Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Alright, we know what you're thinking, but just bear with us on this one... It turns out that that Vardy has as many goals in the league as Messi and Ronaldo combined! 

In fact, he's even got more goals that Thomas Muller and Neymar! But this might just be the most impressive stat of them all... he's just one goal away from joining the likes of Ruud van Nistelrooy, Thierry Henry and Alan Shearer in scoring in seven or more consecutive Premier League games...
