Here are the five fastest players to score 100 Premier League goals:
Ian Wright - 173 games
Ian Wright's career path was not much different from Vardy and he rose from the depths of the non-league to establish himself as a Premier League winner and one of the most influential players in the history of his club.
Wright's big break came in the colors of Crystal Palace and after a renewable goal-scoring record at Selhurst Park, he went to Arsenal in the early 1990s, signed a deal for the club record and became the biggest attack threat in North London during the first seasons of the Premier League era.
The striker was an instinctive ending of the showman's style, who scored the Gunners' goals during a time when the club was famous for their defensive resistance in contrast to any attacking moment.
Wright reached a century of Premier League goals in just 173 appearances and later became the top scorer in Arsenal history, an extremely popular player whose name is still regularly sung on the terraces thanks to his productive record and repertoire of excellent endings.
Thierry Henry - 160 games
The man who has overshadowed Wright as Arsenal's all-time leading scorer, Thierry Henry's career in English football is the one who needs a little introduction.
Arriving from Juventus in north London, Henry quickly established himself as the top striker in the Premier League, earning a record four gold boots over a brilliant eight-year-old style in which he was twice named PFA Player of the Year and as FWA Footballer of the Year on three occasions.
The Frenchman redefined the expectations of a center-forward and pioneer multi-purpose striker in the modern game, moving extensively into dangerous areas and taking on more responsibilities than simply taking away the chances.
Rarely did a player look as unstoppable as Henry with an Arsenal shirt, an irresistible talent who flew randomly into opposition defenders and scored relentlessly and regularly during the best period in the club’s Premier League history.
He scored 100 goals in just 160 league appearances for the Gunners, won two league titles and was recognized as the most influential player the division has ever seen.
Sergio Aguero - 147 matches
Sergio Aguero, the weakest non-English player in Premier League history and Manchester City's all-time leading scorer, has made the art of finding the back of the net almost bizarre after a sensational career at the Etihad.
No player has ever scored as clinically or as regularly as the little Argentine, who comes alive in the width of the opponent's goals with his low center of gravity and insatiable desire to get his name on the score sheet.
Only two players have ever reached a century of Premier League goals in a way faster than Aguero, who has the best goal-to-match ratio of any player who has scored.
It may seem like a strange sight, but there is a sense that Aguero remains underestimated in the much better discussion of the Premier League, despite his status as a four-time title winner and a player who has defined so many big - scoring more goals than any other player against the 'six balls' of the division.
Statistics can only show half the story, but there is no doubt about Aguero's place in the speech of the best Premier League striker ever.
Harry Kane - 141 games
Only one player has ever reached the 100th Premier League club faster than Harry Kane, the Tottenham star who had a disastrous start to his career after taking his chance on the North London side.
Kane appeared on stage after joining the Spurs academy and flourishing amidst regular football, scoring over 20 league goals in four consecutive seasons and winning the Golden Bizz in the Premier League in successive campaigns in 2015/16 and 2016/17. .
In the second of those seasons, Kane scored 29 goals in just 30 Premier League appearances, with no player in Premier League history averaging a better goal-scoring ratio in a Boot Golden winning season.
The England captain possesses a shooting spirit mentality and selfish nature that is required to be among the best strikers in the world, enjoying the responsibility of being the main man for both the club and the country.
He became the 27th player to score 100 Premier League goals with a penalty against Liverpool in 2018 and reached the milestone in just 141 major flights.
Alan Shearer - 124 games
Alan Shearer, the top scorer in Premier League history and a man whose signs many believe will stand the test of time, plundered a staggering 260 goals during a prolific career at Blackburn Rovers and Newcastle United.
Shearer remains the only player to have scored more than 30 league goals in more than one campaign, achieving performance three seasons in a row during a period at Ewood Park that won a Premier League title for Blackburn.
He became the first player in division history to win three consecutive Boot Golden awards, two of which he won with Blackburn before claiming the honor for the third time following a world record transfer to St James' Park.
Shearer was the talismanic forward presence of his generation, combining a natural finishing instinct with a willingness to take part in the fighting side of the game, enjoying the admiration that accompanied the sound of a goal as he set out to celebrate the one-handed signing style .
He scored 100 Premier League goals in just 124 league games, later becoming the most prolific goal-scorer the division has ever seen, breaking the Magpies's Jackie Milburn goal record.
