Gary Lineker reacts as Walkers put Leicester City hero Jamie Vardy on the front of crisp packets

Bags of crisps

The top goalscorer in the Premier League has been in top form this season.

Leicester City are taking the Premier League by storm this season. Tipped by many to be relegated at the start of the season they are currently top of the Premier League after a fantastic transition into management under Italian Claudio Ranieri.

Of course the exceptional performances of some of their players has helped - in particular Jamie Vardy.

He is currently the top scorer in the Premier League and broke the record for consecutive games scoring with his 11th strike in a row. He has now become one of a handful of players to win the Premier League Player of the Month award two months in a row.

To honour his performances Leicester City crisp company Walkers have honoured him with a new flavour of crisp and new packet complete with the Leicester striker on the front - 'Vardy Salted' they call it.

Another striker synonymous with Leicester and Walkers is Match of the Day presenter Gary Lineker.

He did not seem to be pleased with the decision to allow Vardy's mug on 'his' crisps.

He sent out this tweet earlier today.


Of course Lineker was joking and is undoubtedly delighted by the performances of his hometown club and their new favourite striker.
