Jamie Vardy just keeps getting better

Published Add your comment

It's been a quite meteoric rise to the English top flight for Leicester City's Jamie Vardy.

The English forward, who joined Leicester from Fleetwood Town in 2012, scored two goals as the Foxes came from behind to secure a point in their 2-2 draw against Southampton on Saturday.

It was the continuation of a fantastic start to the season which has seen Vardy score nine goals in as many appearances for Claudio Ranieri's men.

In what is only his second campaign in the top flight, the striker has already managed to better his tally of five goals in 34 appearances from last season and is, without doubt, one of the first names on the manager's team sheet.

It's an incredible story of a player who started his career at non-league side Stocksbridge Park Steels and only started playing league football at the age of 25, but Vardy, now 28-years-old has been able to use that as a stepping stone to becoming a Premier League star.

Vardy is well known for his tireless displays of energy and hard work. He can play from the wing, or occupy a more central role for his side and his willingness to run at defenders with blistering pace makes him a threat that any opponent will be cautious to deal with him.

Perhaps the only thing missing from his game last season was consistent goal-scoring and he has certainly improved in that regard, becoming the Premier League's top goal-scorer.

"Vardy is an absolute nightmare for defenders. He never stops running, doesn't give up and is an excellent finisher." said Paul Merson on Soccer Saturday.

His great form has transformed Leicester from a relegation-threatened side to a team hovering in-and-around the top half of the table.

The Foxes will be hoping their scintillating run doesn't come to an end and their top marksman can continue to terrorize the Premier League's top defenders.
