Vardy out to continue run

Leicester striker Jamie Vardy will look to continue his scoring record in big matches when Man Utd visit the King Power Stadium.

Vardy is one goal away from his 50th in the Premier League but perhaps what is more impressive is the proportion of his goals which have come against the so-called big six.

Since he began playing in the Premier League at the start of the 2014/15 campaign, 41 per cent of his goals have come in matches against Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United or Tottenham.

During that period, the former Fleetwood player's record is vastly superior to his peers with Sergio Aguero managing just 26 per cent, Harry Kane 18 per cent and Romelu Lukaku, who will oppose Leicester on Saturday evening, notching only eight per cent of his goals against the same clubs.

"I have said before he is the complete striker," said manager Claude Puel.

"He can give a solution between the lines and is comfortable with the ball. He has good movement in behind defenders and he scores goals, he's clinical in front of goal.

"He wants to play in every game with the same tempo and quality and he gives his best. He is a fantastic player with a positive attitude and is unselfish, giving a positive attitude to the team. We are lucky to have Jamie with us."
