Vardy to light the party

Premier League leaders Leicester City will this afternoon host Manchester United at the King Power Stadium and is backing golden shoe candidate, Jamie Vardy to score his eleventh straight goal.

This same fixture last season saw the Foxes came from behind to mesmerize United 5-3.


Claudio Ranieri’s side has proven to be fearless and ready to cause upset in the league and Louis van Gaal’s only choice going into this encounter must be a counter attacking play otherwise they will lose woefully.

The Foxes have lost just once at the King Power Stadium this season and that was a 5-2 humbling to Arsenal.

But Leicester’s goal scoring record cannot be over emphasized as Jamie Richard Vardy may score his eleventh goal on the streak this afternoon to become the only player to score eleven straight goals in the history of the English Premier League.

For Manchester United to survive against the attacking threat of Leicester, Louis van Gaal must place more emphasis on Riyad Mahrez because he’s the one who provides Vardy with the necessary ammunitions to fire at the opponent.

The match is going to be very similar to last season’s encounter, but I’m certainly backing the Foxes to pick a win over United.


There have been 18 goals scored in the last four Premier League meetings between these two sides.

The Foxes have recovered more points from losing positions (10) than any other team in the Premier League this season.

The Red Devils have lost just one of their last nine Premier League matches (W6 D2 L1).

The Foxes have now scored 14 successive Premier League matches and are the only side to find the back of the net in all 13 of their PL games this season.

The 13 Premier League games involving Leicester City this season have seen 48 goals scored.
