Vardy out to equal Henry feat as Foxes attempt to end Reds home run

Comments()
Can Vardy rain on Liverpool's Premier League party?

Premier League leaders Liverpool will look to keep their incredible home form going as they host Leicester City on Thursday morning (AEDT) but they must be wary of Jamie Vardy - a man no stranger to inflicting pain upon the Reds.

Only Thierry Henry (eight) and Andrew Cole (11) have scored more Premier League goals against Liverpool than Vardy, who currently has seven. 

The 32-year-old striker has shown glimpses of his best in recent weeks and has seven goals with a further three assists to his name so far this season. 

Leicester, on the back of consecutive league defeats, will need him primed to fire if they're any chance of causing an upset at Anfield with the Reds unbeaten in their last 32 home Premier League games.

To make matters worse, the Foxes have lost six of their last seven away league matches against Liverpool with their last win at Anfield dating back to May 2000.

With home advantage on their side, Jurgen Klopp's side have also taken a liking to mid-week fixtures having not lost any of their last 19 home games in the competition played from Monday to Friday.

This game also marks the tenth time this season Liverpool will start a match top of the Premier League - more times than they’ve ever done in a single season.

Four points clear of second-placed Manchester City, the Reds can't afford to slip up anytime soon and they will be quietly confident of claiming a fourth straight league win against Leicester.
