Claudio Ranieri and Jamie Vardy: Scoop November prizes

Leicester boss Claudio Ranieri and striker Jamie Vardy have been named November’s Premier League Manager and Player of the Month.

Vardy wins the accolade for the second successive time after sealing October’s prize, having continued his scoring run in consecutive games to break Ruud Van Nistelrooy’s Premier League record and extend it to 11 matches.

The 28-year-old forward, who recently made his England debut, has been in superb form this season with 14 goals in all competitions.

Ranieri, meanwhile, took Leicester back to the top of the Premier League with victory over Swansea last weekend a position they hit during an impressive unbeaten November which saw them record wins away to Newcastle, at home to Watford, and a 1-1 draw with Manchester United.

The award will boost the Italian further ahead of his first Premier League clash with former club Chelsea, from whom he was sacked in 2004, on Monday evening.

Ranieri was up against Jurgen Klopp, who had been on a run of four straight wins with Liverpool, Tottenham head coach Mauricio Pochettino and Everton boss Roberto Martinez.

Vardy has beaten fellow England forwards Harry Kane and Ross Barkley to his prize, as well as Troy Deeney, Romelu Lukaku and Dejan Lovren.
