With his two penalties scored, Vardy becomes the second Premier League player to score five consecutive goals during an away game against a same club since Ruud Van Nistelrooy while playing for Red Devils.

Dutch legend found the net during five consecutive trips to Newcastle United. A record Jamie Vardy equals today as he scores on his five away games at Hawthorns Stadium.

“Never in a million years did I ever think I would win a Premier League winners medal let alone the Golden Boot…just wow! If this proves anything, it shows you should never ever give up on your dreams, no matter how crazy they may seem!” Jamie Vardy wrote in July as he claimed 2019/20 Premier League Golden Boot with 23 goals.

In addition, Leicester will take on Burnley on September 20, 2020 (next Sunday) Burnley for their second game of the season. Another occasion for Jamie Vardy to score as Liverpool star Mohamed Salah is currently on top of PL top scorers after his hat-trick against Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds United on Saturday.
