LONDON: Jamie Vardy won the Premier League Gold Shoes for the first time in his career early this morning despite a poor finish at the end of the season saw Leicester City miss out on the Champions League.
The 33-year-old England striker became the oldest player to win the top scoring award after scoring 23 goals, one more than Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Southampton player Danny Ings.
With Chelsea securing the top four spot with a 2-0 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers, Vardy failed to find a touch as the Foxes tried to overtake Manchester United and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad for the top four.
Vardy almost scored for Leicester when they lost 2-0 at King Power Stadium when his shot hit the crossbar after an hour.
Ederson won the ‘Golden Glove’ award for scoring the most unbeaten after Manchester City won 5-0 over eliminated, Norwich then recorded 16 unbeaten matches this season.
He finished the match a better match than Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope, whose side lost 2-1 at home to Brighton.
