Leicester City continued their wonderful 2019/20 Premier League campaign with a cool 2-0 win over Watford on Wednesday.
The Foxes remain eight points behind leaders Liverpool but sit three and six clear of Manchester City and Chelsea, strengthening their claim for a place in the top four. And one again, Jamie Vardy was the man to make the headlines.
Vardy opened the scoring from the penalty spot, the seventh consecutive game in which he has scored drawing comparisons to his record-breaking run in 2015/16. It look the Englishman’s tally to 14 for the season, keeping his lead at the top of the Premier League’s goalscoring charts.
He is joined on double figures by Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham, who returned from injury to net his 11th goal of the season in a 2-1 win over Aston Villa. Arsenal forward Pierre-Emerick Aubemayang is one behind on 10 after scoring twice in his side’s 2-2 draw with Norwich City on Sunday.
Behind the duo is a trio of players on nine including Sergio Aguero, who continues to miss Manchester City games through injury, potentially falling further away from the top three.
Aguero is joined by Marcus Rashford, who scored twice as Manchester United beat Tottenham Hotspur 2-1, and Sadio Mane who grabbed one of Liverpool’s five in their thrashing of Everton.
Another hat-trick of players follow up on eight goals including Danny Ings and Teemu Pukki, who both scored in Southampton’s win over Norwich City, and Raheem Sterling. Harry Kane completes the top 10 with seven goals.
