Leicester striker Jamie Vardy has been crowned the EA SPORTS Player of the Month for October after scoring four goals in three games.

Vardy has been impressive as Brendan Rodgers' side maintained their strong start to the season last month.

The Foxes are currently in third place in the Premier League table, eight points off leaders Liverpool after 11 matches.

'It's great to win the award but it just shows what the team have been doing as well,' he told premierleague.com.

'We've been putting good performances in and fortunately for me I have been getting the chances and putting them away.'

Vardy notched a goal in Leicester's 2-1 win over Burnley on October 19 and also scored a hat-trick in the club's 9-0 demolition of Southampton a week later.

The 32-year-old was voted for by fans as the standout player last month and beat Jack Grealish, Ilkay Gundogan, Dean Henderson, Willian and Youri Tielemans to the gong.
