Vardy joins Man United great Ruud van Nistelrooy in elite Premier League club

Jamie Vardy scored a brace against Aston Villa on Sunday evening as Leicester recorded their eighth consecutive win in the Premier League this season.

The Englishman, who also scored in midweek against Watford, is enjoying a stellar campaign, finding the net 16 times in the opening 16 matches. 

His double against the Villains meant he has also scored in eight consecutive matches, matching his own record that he set in November 2015 as they won the Premier League title. 

The brace also meant that Vardy joined former Manchester  United great Ruud van Nistelrooy as the only two players to score in eight consecutive seasons in two different seasons. 

The Dutchman achieved this fete when he first scored in eight consecutive matches in January 2002, before embarking on a 10-match scoring run in the 2002/03 season. 

Former Liverpool and Chelsea striker Daniel Sturridge is the other player to have achieved this in the Premier League, scoring in eight consecutive matches.
