Kelechi Iheanacho has taken to social media to congratulate Jamie Vardy after he netted his 100th and 101st Premier League goals in the 3-0 win over Crystal Palace at the King Power Stadium on Saturday.
Vardy has been phenomenal for the Foxes since they made it to the top-flight in 2014-15, with his 24 goals landing the East Midlands club a shock league title the season after, when they finished 10 points clear of Arsenal.
He has reached the 20-goal mark on two occasions including the current campaign, in which his 21 goals have him on top of the goalscorers charts, two ahead of Arsenal and Gabon forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
“Back to winning ways. Congrats to @vardy7 on reaching the 100 club,” Iheanacho posted on Twitter.

Vardy became the first Leicester player to score a century of goals in the Premier League era and the fourth in the club’s history after Arthur Chandler (204), Ernie Hine (149) and Arthur Lochhead (105).
The 33-year-old has now scored 128 goals for Leicester since joining from Fleetwood Town in 2011, and a total of 190 career club goals in 388 outings.
Iheanacho was the other goalscorer on Saturday afternoon in what was his ninth league start and 16th appearance, getting the opener four minutes after the break following a dull first-half.
