Jamie Vardy joins Arsenal legend Ian Wright in exclusive Premier League club following latest Leicester goal

Crystal Palace vs Leicester

Leicester headed into the game on a pretty dismal run of form. The Foxes had lost two and drawn one of their last three Premier League ties, and have also endured a nightmare start to their Europa League campaign, with their last outing a 1-0 loss vs Polish outfit Legia Warsaw.

As showcased below, only two players in Premier League history have scored 90+ goals in the competition after turning 30. The first was Arsenal legend Ian Wright (93), with Vardy having today added his name to the exclusive list:
