Vardy Named As April's Premier League Player Of The Month!


Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy has been announced as the winner of the EA SPORTS Premier League Player of the Month award for April!

The 32-year-old beat off competition from Eden Hazard (Chelsea), Jordan Henderson (Liverpool), Aymeric Laporte (Manchester City), Shane Long (Southampton), Ayoze PĂ©rez (Newcastle United), Mo Salah (Liverpool) and Chris Wood (Burnley) to win the public vote.

During a sensational month of personal form, Vardy netted in all but one of his four appearances in April, scoring five goals, taking his overall tally up to 18 in the 2018/19 season.

Also helping Brendan Rodgers' men secure seven points from a possible 12 over April, the Club's all-time Premier League top goalscorer is now on 100 league goals for the Club - including his efforts in the Championship.

His first strike in April was a brilliant team goal during a 4-1 win at Huddersfield Town, before the former Fleetwood Town striker added another from the penalty spot at John Smith's Stadium.

Bagging City's first of a 2-2 draw at West Ham United, cutting across the Hammers defence to latch onto Ben Chilwell's low cross, Vardy's lethal touch was on show again in the capital.

Meanwhile, during a dominant 3-0 success over Arsenal, Vardy struck another brace - meaning he has now scored eight goals against the North London side in the Premier League.

He has also been nominated for the PFA Bristol Street Motors Player of the Month award in April and, while voting is now closed, the winner will be announced later this month.
