English Premier League top scorers: Can Vardy end his long goalscoring drought against Aston Villa?

Leicester's fortunes have greatly taken a turn for the worst in recent weeks, moving from possible title contenders in December to battling for a top-four spot. 

They head into Monday night's English Premier League clash against Aston Villa hoping to reignite the form that led to many thinking they were the only side that could rival Liverpool for the main prize. 

They are winless in their last four matches in the League, and with their closest challengers catching up with them, they need a quick upturn if they are to play European football next season.

Their poor run has interestingly coincided with Jamie Vardy's goal drought. The Englishman was on fire in the opening half of the season, hitting 17 goals by Christmas. 

His well has however dried, and despite leading the scoring charts alongside Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, he is still stuck on 17 since the end of 2019. 

His season has been disrupted by injuries in recent games but endured a nine-game goal drought prior to his recent injury two weeks ago. 

Leicester will need their top striker back in the goals again and will be hoping this is the day he comes with his scoring boots.

Meanwhile, many of the league's top marksmen have caught up with him at the top of the scoring charts during his goal drought.
