Jamie Vardy’s Record Against The Top Six Is Incredible

Jamie Vardy put a big dent in Arsenal's hopes of finishing in the top four in the Premier League and qualifying for next season's Champions League and it came as no surprise considering his form against the top six.

It really has been a season where no one involved in the battle to finish in the top four has wanted the spots remaining behind Manchester City and Liverpool.

In the past eight days Spurs, Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United have all dropped points and that's before the latter two faced on Sunday.

Arsenal once again proved their ineptitude in picking up points away from home earlier on Sunday when they were beaten by Leicester City.

Brendan Rodgers' side were 3-0 winners at the King Power Stadium as Jamie Vardy netted twice after Youri Tielemans had put the Foxes ahead.

The brace for Vardy means that since he moved to the Premier League with Leicester he's scored eight times against the Gunners but it's not just Arsenal who has seen the brunt of his scoring prowess.

All the teams in the top six are under threat when Vardy's on the pitch with the former Fleetwood Town striker bagging 34 goals against them:

That record will make for awkward reading for Manchester City fans. Their win against Burnley put them back ahead of Liverpool and two wins away from defending their league title.

However next up for Pep Guardiola's side is Vardy and his teammates and it's unlikely the former England international is going to give the blue side of Manchester an easy ride of it.

For now though most of the country would have been very pleased with the striker after he followed up his brace by mugging off Arsenal fan Piers Morgan:

The win for Leicester put Arsenal's chances of finishing in the top four on thin ice, sitting four points behind Spurs in third and behind Chelsea before their game with United.

Can Vardy change the destination of the title after potentially doing the same in the race for the top four?
