Trio in Golden Boot race

Lesotho Times - - Sport -

LONDON — With the Pre­mier League ti­tle al­ready de­cided, there is one piece of sil­ver­ware three in­di­vid­u­als still have their sights on.

Harry Kane (Spurs), Jamie Vardy (Le­ices­ter) and Ser­gio Aguero (Manch­ester City) are all look­ing to land the Golden Boot award on the last day of sea­son.

Vardy and Aguero are breath­ing down Kane’s neck for the award.

The Tot­ten­ham Hot­spur for­ward has net­ted 25 goals so far this sea­son with the lat­ter duo on 24 goals apiece.

Kane has been White Hart Lane’s stand­out player this cam­paign as they pushed ‘The Foxes’ to the wire for the Pre­mier League ti­tle.

Mean­while, Vardy re­turned to Le­ices­ter’s start­ing XI against Ever­ton the past week­end af­ter serv­ing a two-match ban and did so in em­phatic fash­ion with a brace. The striker could have been on 25 goals, but missed a penalty in City’s 3-1 vic­tory.

For Aguero, the for­mer Atletico Madrid for­ward has played fewer league games than Vardy and Kane, but sees his name yet again among the top goal scor­ers this sea­son.

The Ar­gen­tine has fea­tured 28 times for the Cit­i­zens while Kane has made 37 ap­pear­ances. Vardy has been se­lected 35 times by Clau­dio Ranieri.

On Sun­day, May 15 — with all the games start­ing off at the same time - City will travel to the Lib­erty Sta­dium to take on Swansea City while Tot­ten­ham Hot­spur face New­cas­tle United at St James’ Park.

Ranieri re­turns to his old em­ploy­ees at Stam­ford Bridge, where he spent three un­der­whelm­ing sea­sons as Chelsea man­ager.

With the Pre­mier League ti­tle in the bag, the 64-year-old will be hop­ing Vardy has his shoot­ing boots on as he looks to cap off the year with his 100th Pre­mier League vic­tory at a club where he was un­der ap­pre­ci­ated dur­ing his ten­ure.
