Leicester City’s James Vardy impressive form lands him EA SPORTS Player of the Month award

Leicester talisman Jamie Vardy has won the EA SPORTS Player of the Month award for April.

The Leicester City striker continued his impressive form since Brendan Rodgers became manager, scoring in all but one of his four appearances in the month.

In total, he claimed five goals, including a brace in a 3-0 victory over Arsenal at the King Power Stadium.

Vardy’s goals in April have moved him on to 18 for the season to give him an outside chance of winning the Premier League Golden Boot.

“It’s great but it shows how well the team has been doing over the past month,” said Vardy, after receiving the prize for the third time.

“I want to be scoring as many goals as possible but I want to be getting the goals in victories and that is what we have managed to do over this past month.”

Vardy topped an eight-man shortlist that included Eden Hazard, Jordan Henderson, Aymeric Laporte, Shane Long, Ayoze Perez, Mohamed Salah and Chris Wood.
