Leicester’s Jamie Vardy named October’s Premier League POTM

Vardy scoops Premier League award

Jamie Vardy has had a superb start to the 2019/20 campaign.

The Leicester City forward is currently the top goalscorer in the Premier League, bagging 10 in the opening 11 fixtures.

Vardy had a particularly outstanding October for the Foxes.

Leicester played three league ties last month, vs Liverpool, Burnley and Southampton.

Vardy would score four in these three league fixtures and, as a result, he has been voted as the Premier League Player of the Month for October.

On winning the award, Vardy had this to say:

“It’s great to win the award but it just shows what the team have been doing as well.

“We’ve been putting good performances in and fortunately for me I have been getting the chances and putting them away.” As quoted by Leicester’s official website.

Leicester vs Arsenal

Vardy’s fine form continued into November, with the former England international having scored in Leicester’s most recent PL tie, in which they beat Crystal Palace 2-0.

The Foxes are now set to play host to Arsenal on Saturday.

Should Brendan Rodgers’ side clinch all three points vs the Gunners, they would open up a nine-point gap between themselves and 5th placed Arsenal, which is great for Leicester’s top-four hopes.
