Forward – Jamie Vardy (Leicester)
Vardy has now scored in his eight consecutive Premier League games and the third player to do so after after Ruud van Nistelrooy and Daniel Sturridge. Vardy is one of the centre forwards who can create their own goals, he has good pace which gives him the chance to get away from defenders and he links well with Mahrez. Both players has netted a combined 18 goals this season out of Leicester City’s 23.
