Unless you’re a defender in the Premier League, the chances are you probably love Jamie Vardy.
We all know about the Leicester striker’s rags-to-riches story by now, which is constantly on the forefront of our minds every time he scores a big goal (which is fairly often, actually).
The striker has scored nine times in the Premier League this season, including in games against Arsenal, Spurs and Chelsea.
He was also on the scoresheet against Manchester United in the 2-2 draw just before Christmas, thanks to a lovely piece of link-up play with Riyad Mahrez.
Honestly, we adore watching those two together.
And the attacking duo were on-hand again against Liverpool this afternoon, with Mahrez setting up his teammate for the game’s opener.
Inside the opening three minutes of the game, a sloppy pass from Joel Matip was easily intercepted by Leicester’s Vicente Iborra – honestly, Liverpool really do need a new centre-back, don’t they?
The midfielder then found an on-side Mahrez on the edge of the penalty area making a run – who then rather typically squared the ball to an on-rushing Vardy to tap home.
And you know what?
With that goal, Vardy has now netted 22 times against the Premier League’s ‘big six’ since August 2014, which is more than anyone else.
If that’s not enough, Vardy has also hit seven goals against Liverpool, which is the most he’s scored against any other club.
He sure does love havin’ a party against those Reds, right?
