This news could be music to Jamie Vardy, who currently leads the Premier League goalscoring table with Liverpool’s Mo Salah having scored six goals in the Premier League’s opening seven games.

This led BBC expert Mark Lawrenson to say that Vardy wants to be a key player in the game.

Another player who can be seen as a key part of the opposition is Cristiano Ronaldo, the Portugal international was left out of the starting XI for United’s draw against Everton but could be drafted at King Power Stadium this weekend .

The United man is famous for his ‘suii’ celebration, something which was echoed by Andros Townsend when he scored Everton’s equalizer ahead of the international break.

Ahead of the game against Man United, Vardy posted a post on social media: “Focus on Saturday. @LCFC. “

The post gave fans the option of making a simple request on Twitter and Instagram if Vardy found the net.

Jack : you MUST do the CR7 celebration if you score Jamie on Saturday.

@ melvinh10 : Dooo siiiiiii when you score

@niklas_schnabel : siuu celebration on Saturday
