EPL Wrap: Vardy Sets Record; Man City Top

 Leicester striker Jamie Vardy has set a new Barclays Premier League record after scoring in his 11th straight game - but it was only enough for a 1-1 draw with Manchester United .

The England forward opened the scoring in the 24th minute on Saturday to break Ruud van Nistelrooy's 10-game mark, which had stood since 2003.

Vardy netted his 14th goal of the season when he latched onto Christian Fuchs' pass and fired in across David De Gea from 12 yards after Kasper Schmeichel had launched a quick break from a United corner.

The result helped Manchester City return to the summit as they earlier claimed a 3-1 victory over Southampton at the Etihad Stadium.

Bournemouth twice recovered from seemingly-lost causes to earn a dramatic 3-3 draw with Everton and rescue a vital point in their bid for survival.

Argentina defender Ramiro Funes Mori netted Everton's first set-piece goal of the season and Romelu Lukaku's 12th of the campaign gave Everton a 2-0 half-time lead.

But Adam Smith (80) and Junior Stanislas (87) levelled in a dramatic finale before Ross Barkley put Everton back ahead deep into stoppage time.

Stanislas, however, rescued a point for the Cherries with virtually the last touch of the match in the eighth minute of injury time.
