His strike against West Bromwich Albion in the Premier League last night saw his goal tally rise to 16 across all competitions in just 32 appearances. Vardy is now on 15 goals and the Nigerian could genuinely surpass him this season.
Iheanacho also won the man of the match award against Sam Allardyce's side because of a well rounded performance that saw his team go away with the win and all but secure a place inside the top 4 for the foreseeable future.
