🏆 Premier League awards: Which players entered the history books?
After a dramatic final day of the 2019/20 Premier League season, how about we dive into some individual awards?
Here are the headline makers for some milestone moments …
⚽️ Golden boot
Leicester striker Jamie Vardy became the oldest player to win the Premier League Golden Boot after finishing the season with 23 goals.
The 33-year-old ended up a goal clear of Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Southampton striker Danny Ings – who both finished on 22.
Vardy is the ninth English player to win or share the Golden Boot.
🧤 Golden glove
Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson has won the Golden Glove award.
The Brazilian earned 16 clean sheets – one more than Burnley and England goalkeeper Nick Pope – across 35 league appearances.
Ederson and Pope had stood to share the award but Burnley conceded at home to Brighton on the final day.
🤝 Assist record
Kevin de Bruyne
Manchester City playmaker Kevin De Bruyne has equalled Thierry Henry’s long-standing Premier League assist record for a single season.
The Belgian set up his 20th goal of the campaign in our final league game of the season against Norwich – drawing level with Henry’s record set in 2002-03.
He is also the first player to register 15+ assists in three separate Premier League seasons and the fastest player to reach 50 assists in the league’s history.
