Leicester duo claim November awards

Leicester City duo Claudio Ranieri and Jamie Vardy have picked up the Premier League Player and Manager of the month awards for November.

The Foxes enjoyed a hugely successful month, recording three wins as well as a 1-1 draw with Manchester United, which saw Vardy break former Red Devils striker Ruud van Nistelrooy's record of scoring in 10 consecutive Premier League games.

Vardy wins the award for the second time this season, becoming only the fifth player to do so in Premier League history.

Leicester currently find themselves at the summit of the Premier League standings and hold a two-point lead over second-placed Arsenal.

Vardy beat Tottenham's Harry Kane, Watford's Troy Deeney and Liverpool's Dejan Lovren to the November accolade.

Ranieri, meanwhile, fended off competition from Liverpool's Jurgen Klopp, Everton's Roberto Martinez and Tottenham's Mauricio Pochettino.
