Jamie Vardy: Leicester’s big name for big games is at it again

Big games, big names

Vardy now has 109 Premier League goals, moving ahead of Peter Crouch and drawing level with Ryan Giggs. Not bad company for a man who only made his Football League debut at the age of 25.

He won the Golden Boot last season as the Premier League’s top scorer with 23 goals, and averages a goal every 64 minutes this season.

Remarkably, his six goals this term have come from only nine shots – fewer than either Brighton’s Yves Bissouma or West Ham’s Tomas Soucek has attempted.

He is also whatever the opposite of a flat-track bully is. He loves a goal against the big teams. And West Brom.

“That is why he is a big player, he makes the big contributions in the big games,” said manager Brendan Rodgers.

“That shows you the level he is at and he is a world class player. I am lucky to have him here.”

Since Rodgers took charge of the Foxes in February 2019 Vardy has scored 39 goals in 51 Premier League appearances. Everyone else at the club has managed 57 between them.
