The record Jamie Vardy matched following first-half brace for Leicester vs Watford

Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy matched a Premier League record on Sunday.

Leicester vs Watford

Leicester are currently locked in action with Watford.

The Foxes headed into the game languishing in mid-table, after a fairly uninspiring start to the 2021/22 campaign, which had seen them lose five and draw three of their first 12 Premier League outings of the season.

As for Watford, they have received something of a managerial bounce since the arrival of Claudio Ranieri. However, the Hornets are still fairly close to the relegation zone, and entered Sunday sitting 16th in the league.

And, as things stand, the Hornets look set to slip ever-closer to the drop zone…

An enthralling first 45 played out at the King Power, which saw Leicester score three and Watford one.

The record Jamie Vardy matched vs Watford

James Maddison opened the scoring on the day, with Jamie Vardy netting a quickfire brace towards the end of the first 45.

And, following his latest double, it has been revealed that Vardy has matched a Premier League record.

As per Opta, the hitman, now 34, has equalled a feat previously managed by Ian Wright, as the player with the most Premier League goals scored after turning 30:

Jamie Vardy has now scored 93 Premier League goals since he turned 30, moving level with Ian Wright for most goals by a player in his 30s in the competition’s history.
