Leicester City have continued their dominance into the new year in what is becoming a norm in the Premier League this season.

But they are being chased by a spirited and young Tottenham side who have been showing signs of consistency in the recent past.

And this close to the end of the season, the epitome of both clubs has taken the spotlight in the Premier League awards for the month of March.

Claudio Ranieri whose side has been exceptional running into the business end of the season has bagged the Premier League manager of the month award.

Manager-of-the-month It is his second one in a season where he is now just 12 points away from the Premier League title.

The Foxes started the month of March with a 2-2 draw against the Baggies and then went on to win three consecutive games against Watford, Newcastle and Crystal Palace with a 1-0 score-line.

Three clean sheets and 10 points from a possible 12 along with a 1-0 victory against Southampton in April has seen the Foxes take a 7 point lead at the top of the table with just 6 games to go this season.

In a recent interview, he spoke about how important the contribution of every player is to the team and said that he has enjoyed leading the Premier League table this season.

“When they give me everything, their heart, and soul, I’m happy. We believe in what we are doing. It’s important to win because it was a good answer to the Premier League,” Ranieri said.

Meanwhile, Tottenham Hotspur’s in-form striker Harry Kane bagged the Player of the month award for March.

Player-of-the-month

The England international who is closing in at the golden boot award is leads the list of goal scorers with 22 goals in the Premier League this season and netted 5 goals in the previous month.

He started the month with a terrific strike against rivals Arsenal in an intriguing London-derby and then bagged a brace against Aston Villa and got two more against Bournemouth in a superb month for the striker.

The 22-year old who broke into the spotlight with a superb goal-scoring season last campaign was branded a one-season wonder but he has already bettered his returns from the previous season and has promised to score as many goals as possible.

“Obviously, I’ve gone ahead of last season but it doesn’t stop here – there are six games left for me to try to get as many goals as possible,” the striker said talking to the media recently.

His heroics will, however, go to vain if he does not help his team to the top of the Premier League table at the end of the season.
