Vardy holding his own

Talk about an impressive finish for Vardy: seventh place amongst so many legends!

It's incredible to think that a striker who was turning out for Halifax Town and Fleetwood Town in the last decade now has a better Premier League goal-per-game ratio than Drogba.

In fact, the only six players with a finer record are some of the greatest forwards to ever grace English shores in Aguero, Henry, Kane, Shearer, Wright and Van Persie. 


What's more, Vardy has achieved it all in a Leicester team that was almost relegated when it initially returned to the Premier League and has only actually finished in the top four once.

Whether the Foxes have been winning the league, fighting relegation or stewing in mid-table, Vardy has been having a party and the stats go a long way towards proving it.
