    Gary Lineker raves about Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy


    Leicester City returned to winning ways with a brilliant 3-0 win against Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Saturday.

    The Foxes, who were winless since the re-start, boosted their hopes of achieving a top-four Premier League finish with a superb victory at home.

    Leicester City striker and club talisman, Jamie Vardy, scored two goals while Kelechi Iheanacho added another as the Foxes picked up all three points.

    It was a special moment for Vardy who scored his 100th and 101st Premier League goals and joined the elite list of strikers to have done so.

    Leicester City legend turned popular football pundit Gary Lineker took to Twitter to express his reaction. He tweeted:

    Vardy brought up his 100th Premier League goal in his 206th appearance. In fact, he is not the top 10 fastest to the milestone.

    Newcastle legend Alan Shearer reached that figure in 124 games, while Harry Kane and Sergio Aguero took 141 and 147 games respectively.

    And yet, Vardy’s journey is special for the rest. It saw a rapid rise from non-league football with Stocksbridge Park Steels and Halifax, via Fleetwood, to the Foxes.

    Lineker has paid tribute to Arsenal legend Ian Wright who made his debut in the competition at an older age than Vardy.

    As a result of the victory, Leicester have cemented their third position in the league. They are three points ahead of fourth-placed Manchester United.
