Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham and Leicester City star Jamie Vardy are the top two in the race for the Golden Boot in the Premier League but they both failed to add to their respective tallies at the end of proceedings on Saturday.

Jamie Vardy had scored for eight successive league games before the Norwich City clash at the King Power Stadium on Saturday evening.

He was unable to add to 16 league goals tally in the Premier League as hosts Leicester City played out a 1-1 draw with Norwich City who are second bottom on the table.

Jamie Vardy thought he had equalized for Leicester City in the first half when his header from a James Maddison corner kick slipped through the fingers of Norwich City goalkeeper Tim Krul and into the back of the net only for the Premier League goal accreditation panel to award the strike as an own goal for the shot-stopper.

Norwich City had taken the lead through topscorer Teemu Pukki before the Leicester City equalizer just before the halftime interval.

The two teams were unable to add to their respective tallies in the second half as they settled for a score draw.

Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham has 11 league goals and he was unable to add to that tally after his team lost 1-0 at home to Bournemouth courtesy a Dan Gosling strike in the second half.
