Leicester City striker and Premier League's top scorer wins award for a fourth time after netting four goals in October

Jamie Vardy has been voted the EA SPORTS Player of the Month after surging to the top of the scoring charts in October. 

Vardy scored four goals in three appearances to climb above Tammy Abraham and Sergio Aguero and keep Leicester City flying high in third place in the Premier League. 

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

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

Four-time winner

Although Vardy's month started with a stoppage-time loss at leaders Liverpool, it ended in the most spectacular of ways. 

After scoring in a 2-1 victory over Burnley, he struck a hat-trick as Leicester beat Southampton 9-0 for the biggest away win in the competition's history.

The Englishman earns the award for a fourth time, two of which came in Leicester's 2015/16 title-winning campaign and the other in April of this year.

The 30-year-old topped a six-man shortlist that also included Jack GrealishIlkay GundoganDean Henderson, team-mate Youri Tielemans and Willian.

Premier League fans selected their favourite on the EA SPORTS website. The votes of the public were then combined with those of the 20 club captains plus a panel of football experts to decide the winner.
