Jamie Vardy Joins Premier League 100 Club With Goal Against Crystal Palace

Jamie Vardy has entered the Premier League 100 goal club, scoring for Leicester against Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Vardy had reached 99 goals in the final game prior to the football's enforced break due and had failed to net in any of the Foxes' three games since the league's return, as well as drawing a blank during his side's FA Cup meeting with Chelsea.

Jamie Vardy celebrates for Leicester.

Games against Watford, Brighton and Everton all passed by without the 33-year-old hitting the back of the net, but he finally completed his century against the Eagles. Harvey Barnes capitalised on some slopping Palace defending, before laying the ball to Vardy for the simplest of tap-ins.

He becomes just the 29th man to score 100 goals in the Premier League and just the third Leicester player to do so, after Les Ferdinand and Emile Heskey. Vardy will now turn his attention to clinching this season's Golden Boot with his most recent strike putting him one ahead of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on 20 goals.
