Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy found the net again as the Foxes came from behind to beat West Bromwich Albion 3-2 at the Hawthorns on Saturday.
England’s most in-form frontman got on the scoresheet after Riyad Mahrez’s double had responded to Salomon Rondon’s 30th-minute opener. Rickie Lambert then scored a late consolation goal from the penalty spot.
Leicester’s win pushes them up to third in the Premier League table, above Manchester United, who drew 0-0 with Crystal Palace.
Vardy is now just the third player to score in eight consecutive Premier League matches, joining Liverpool’s Daniel Sturridge and Man United legend Ruud van Nistelrooy in a very elite club.
Van Nistelrooy actually scored in 10 consecutive Prem games in 2003. Leicester’s next two matches are against Watford at home and Newcastle United away, so Vardy will fancy his chances of equalling the Dutchman’s record.
If he does score in those two matches, his chance at breaking the record with come at home to Man United on November 28.
