Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy has shown no signs of slowing down despite being 33-years-old. The belligerent attacker won the Premier League Golden Boot scoring 23 goals in the 2019-20 season.

He has kept it up and has scored 11 goals already this term from 15 appearances. Vardy loves to run in behind the defenders and once he gets past them, it is nearly impossible to stop him.

Leicester City have worked their way back into being title contenders once again and Jamie Vardy has been leading from the front. He is a modern-day legend at the club and they will bank on him to keep his good form up for the rest of the season to keep apace with the likes of Manchester United and Liverpool.

#2 Bruno Fernandes (Manchester United) - 18 goals

Bruno Fernandes is the only midfielder on this list and it is fair to say that the Premier League hasn't seen a player like him in a long time. Manchester United signed Bruno Fernandes in the January transfer window and his goal tally looks even more incredible when you look at the fact that he made his first appearance for the Red Devils in February.

Fernandes has had a galvanizing effect on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side and he has racked up 14 assists as well in addition to the 18 goals he has scored since he joined. He finishes the year with 18 goals and 14 assists from 29 games. He averages at more than 1 Goals + Assists per game.

Bruno Fernandes is simply the main reason why Manchester United are second on the Premier League table right now and are breathing down the necks of league leaders Liverpool.
