Scoring several goals in a game comes easy to some elite players against weak opponents, but one of the most difficult feats in football is to score in consecutive games against many different opponents – which is part of what makes Jamie Vardy‘s latest accomplishment so special.
Going into the Matchday 13 clash with Newcastle United, a previously injured Jamie Vardy had scored in nine consecutive games and needed one goal to tie Ruud van Nistelrooy’s record of 10 consecutive games with a score.
And with only moments remaining in the first half, Vardy finally got it:
That score gave Vardy his 10th goal in 10 games – and put him into the history books alongside the Man United legend.
10 – Jamie Vardy has equalled the Premier League record for consecutive appearances scored in (10 games). Exceptional.

The only questions that remains for Vardy in his wonderful season are: 1 – Can he break the record? 2 – If he does break the record, how much will he break it by?
