Gary Lineker reacts on Twitter as Leicester's Jamie Vardy joins the elite

Pre Kick Off

Leicester City’s Jamie Vardy scored yet again on Saturday.

Leicester City’s Jamie Vardy joined an elite group of players after notching in his seventh consecutive Premier League fixture, prompting Gary Lineker to reference the feat on Twitter.

The former Fleetwood striker is currently experiencing a dream campaign at the King Power Stadium, scoring goals galore and earning international recognition with England.

The Foxes headed into their clash with Crystal Palace looking to break into the top four and keep their momentum going, having lost just once in their opening nine league matches.

Varney, the current top scorer in the top-flight, simply cannot stop finding the back of the net and he followed up his double at Southampton last weekend with a second-half winner against Palace.

His goal, his tenth in 10 matches, placed him alongside elite players such as Thierry Henry and Ruud van Nistelrooy in becoming one of only a handful to score in seven consecutive games.

The 28-year-old’s goal scoring exploits have largely been a result of Leicester’s fine attacking displays and the excellent work of teammate Riyad Mahrez, who assisted his winner against the Eagles.

The Algeria international now has five assists for the season, a superb tally and one which boss Claudio Ranieri will also be delighted with.

Up next for Leicester is a trip to Hull City in the League Cup before taking on West Bromwich Albion at the Hawthorns, giving Vardy the chance to really go out and place his name in the history books.
