His dribbling, trickery and fast paced counter attacks have tormented defenders throughout the season and it was never a surprise to see Mahrez winning the 2015/16 PFA Player of the Year award.

Mahrez wrapped up his award in style as he was Leicester’s star man tonight in a 4-0 win over Swansea. Mahrez was expected to be the main man for Leicester after Vardy’s red card last weekend and he delivered it big time.

He opened the scoring and was a key figure in Leicester’s attack throughout the game. From now, Mahrez would be hopeful of helping Leicester to their first ever league title and perhaps the biggest underdog story Sports world has ever witnessed.
