Mahrez head was turned however he ought to resume…

Sunday, 11 Feb, 2018

Riyad Mahrez has ended a ten-day transfer standoff with Leicester City by returning to the club's training ground today.

The Algerian global was the subject of a deadline day £60m bid by the Premier League leaders, but the Foxes rejected the offer leaving Mahrez distraught. I hope he can come back with a good attitude and prepared to work, but he will need time, and time to be match-fit.

The Argentine talisman was in clinical form and produced an instinctive finish when De Bruyne once more played in the centre forward who controlled beautifully before smashing home from close range, 3-1. Riyad is a valuable player for the team, other players have welcomed Riyad with a good feeling.

Premier League leaders City moved for Mahrez in the January transfer window but Leicester refused to sell their prized asset.

He said: "I would like to give him a rest sometimes but he's the only striker that we have".

The Foxes have picked up just one point in their last two games, and it appears that Riyad Mahrez's ongoing strike is influencing their on-pitch performances. They will be away from home and facing the top side in the competition.

The Belgian tore Leicester apart with an unrivalled range of short and long passing and will take some catching in the contest for the Premier League's player of the year. "We have more important games".

Manchester City lead the EPL table with 69 points, 13 ahead of second-placed Manchester United.

Vardy has scored an unrivalled 22 Premier League goals in 42 appearances against the current top six clubs since his top-flight debut in August 2014.

After the crucial miss last week against Burnley, squandering the chance to go 2-0 up, Sterling would have hoped for a better game in front of goal on Saturday.

Further explaining the situation, Guardiola said at a press conference on Friday: "It's quite simple - we had a lot of injuries".

The Algeria worldwide won the PFA Players' Player of the Year award after leading the Foxes to a shock Premier League title triumph in 2015-16.
