Vardy Wins Golden Boot And Ederson Clinches Golden Glove
Though his team failed to qualify for the Champions league spot but the Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy became the oldest player to win the Premier League Golden Boot after finishing the season with 23 goals.
The 33 year old ended up a goal clear of Arsenal's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Southampton striker Danny Ings, both on 22.
It will be recalled that last season Liverpool duo Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah and Arsenal's Aubameyang shared it with 22 each.
Vardy still finished clear despite failing to score on the final day as Leicester lost 2-0 to Manchester United to miss out on a Champions League place.
"It's a wonderful individual achievement," said Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers. "We wouldn't be where we are without his quality and goals.
"He's a joy to work with, has a great mentality and has such quality. It's a huge accolade and we're all delighted for him."
Former England striker Vardy scored more in 2015-16, Leicester's title-winning season, with 24 goals - but missed out that time to Harry Kane's 25.
Manchester City keeper Ederson pipped Burnley's Nick Pope to the Golden Glove award after recording his 16th clean sheet of the season on the final day of the season in a 5-0 win against Norwich, while Pope conceded in Burnley's 2-1 defeat against Brighton.
In another news, Manchester city stopper; Ederson wins the golden glove too after he failed to concede any goal yesterday in their last match of the season.
