Premier League Golden Boot race: Jamie Vardy extends lead at the top, Sterling joins the chasing pack

Leicester's Jamie Vardy is increasingly becoming the favourite to clinch this season's Premier League Golden Boot, after yet another fruitful weekend.

The Englishman scored Leicester's opener away to Bournemouth, even though it was not enough as he ended on the losing end as the Cherries battered them 4-1. 

His goal was his 23rd of the current campaign, three clear of second-placed Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang who had a frustrating evening as Arsenal were beaten 2-1 away to north London rivals Tottenham

Manchester City's Raheem Sterling joined the chasing pack with his brilliant hat-trick on Saturday night against Brighton, which took his tally to 17.

Liverpool's duo of Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane could not find the net as well in Liverpool's 1-1 draw against Burnley.
