EPL GW8 Review: Vardy keep scoring, De Bruyne hitting form.

Jamie Vardy’s seventh goal of the season helped him into first place in the forward standings in the 2021/22 Premier League. The Leicester City striker scored for the fourth successive Gameweek, earning eight points in a 4-2 home win over Manchester United.

With fellow big-hitters Romelu Lukaku and Cristiano Ronaldo blanking once again, Vardy strengthened his claim as the go-to premium forward in Premier League. Indeed, Leicester’s upcoming matches raise further the appeal of the 34-year-old.

De Bruyne hitting form?

Kevin De Bruyne and Bernardo Silva also got double-figure hauls as Manchester City claimed a 2-0 home win over Burnley. They both scored and collected a maximum of three bonus points against the Clarets, De Bruyne has netted both of his goals for the season in the last two Gameweeks.

Aston Villa’s John McGinn and Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah were the joint-top scoring midfielders over Saturday’s seven matches.McGinn earned his season-high haul of 13 points thanks to a goal and an assist against Wolverhampton Wanderers. Salah, meanwhile, recorded his fifth double-figure haul in eight Gameweeks to extend his lead at the top of the player standings.
