Cape Town - The weekend's English Premiership action saw plenty of goals and ... for a change ... Jamie Vardy was not one of the scorers. 

Vardy was still very influential in his side's 3-2 win over Everton at Goodison Park, but it was his Algerian team-mate Riyad Mahrez who stole headlines over the weekend.

Mahrez scored two penalties to sink Everton and consolidate his side's position at the top of the table, while he moved to 13 goals for the season.

Everton's Romelu Lukaku scored for his seventh straight Premier League match to climb to 13 goals, while Watford City striker Odion Ighalo continued his fine scoring form with a brace in his side's 3-0 victory over Liverpool. 

Tottenham Hotspurs striker Harry Kane also found the back of the net against Southampton, taking his tally for the season to nine. 

Premier League top scorers:

15 - Jamie Vardy (Leicester City)

13 - Riyad Mahrez (Leicester City), Romelu Lukaku (Everton)

12 - Odion Ighalo (Watford)

9 - Olivier Giroud (Arsenal), Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspur)

7 - Sergio Aguero (Manchester City), Giorginio Wijnaldum (Newcastle United)
