However, as this collection of stats show, taking the record previously held by van Nistelrooy isn’t the only claim that the Leicester City hotshot can make right now.
Indeed, as Vardy racks up the goals this season, he continues to shatter records and demonstrate the kind of consistency that sets him apart as one of the EPL’s finest frontmen.

Vardy’s goals have seen him tipped to emerge as a key man for England at next summer’s European Championships in France, while in the meantime, might one or two of the division’s bigger dogs seek to sign the in-form hotshot?
Looking at these numbers, it’s easy to see why such great things are expected of the polarising Vardy?
At this rate, will the hitman be able to score the goals to help Leicester secure an unlikely Champions League qualification?
