Top ELVN: Players to watch on Match-week 36 of the English Premier League.

7. Jamie Vardy:Jamie Vardy-Leicester City

Riyad Mahrez might be Leicester City’s “milestone man” and the last player on the team to have scored against Watford, but Jamie Vardy is undoubtedly The Foxes’ “form man”, heading into this fixture; especially at home, where he’s scored 5 goals in their last six games (across all competitions). The Englishman now has 12 goals in the EPL; exactly half of his total from last season and you’ve got to assume that he’ll doing his best to get as close to that number as he can, in Leicester City’s four remaining games.

The game against Watford would definitely be a perfect place for him to start, as he scored the second goal in a 2-1 victory, the last time they hosted The Hornets at the King Power stadium.

6. Christian Benteke:Christian Benteke-Crystal Palace

After going on a scoring run which saw him find the net five times in five games, Benteke seems to have slowed down a little bit in the past few weeks. Still, with 14 goals in the League, he’s currently enjoying his second most productive campaign (second only to 2012/13, when he finished with 19 for Aston Villa).

He and his teammates have failed to score in and lost both of their last two EPL games and they’ll be itching to get back on track as soon as possible; especially with the infamous “40 point barrier” just two points away. A trip to the Etihad isn’t exactly the easiest of prospects, but Benteke’s goals have already fired Palace to victories at Stamford Bridge and Anfield, so they should be mildly confident of claiming a third successive “scalp”.
