Vardy breaks Premier League record – scoring in 11th straight game

Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy scored for a record-breaking 11th consecutive Premier League game. Jamie Vardy

Vardy previously shared the record with former Manchester United striker Ruud Van Nistelrooy having netted in 10 successive games, but now holds the record outright.

The historic strike came 24 minutes into the Foxes 1-1 draw with United at the King Power Stadium.

The 28 year-old England forward said: “I’m obviously delighted – but the main thing was the performance itself and I think we performed well.

“It’s unbelievable,” he added whilst being shown a replay of his celebration after finding the net. “I think I got a little bit carried away there.”

Vardy’s 14th league goal of the campaign came after full-back Christian Fuchs slid a brilliant ball in behind United’s defence, and the red hot striker fired it low and beyond the on-rushing David De Gea.

Vardy could score in his 12th straight Premier League game when Leicester face Swansea at the Liberty Stadium on December 5th.
