Missing Mahrez casts shadow over Foxes trip to Manchester City

11 February 2018

Leicester named City target Riyad Mahrez among the substitutes after he ended a self-imposed exile which saw him miss their last two matches.

The Riyad Mahrez saga over for now, Leicester City can finally look forward to playing some football as they face Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.

Leicester only have two injury absentees, with Wes Morgan out with a hamstring injury while Shinji Okazaki is nursing a knee injury.

The league frontrunners found their rhythm early on, as they took an early 1-0 lead within the first five minutes of the match.

City players, especially Raheem Sterling, were guilty of squandering easy chances against the Clarets, and Pep Guardiola will hope for much better finishing from his side against the Foxes.

It means Mahrez will miss a third Premier League game. "He has maintained good fitness to come back quickly". They will be away from home and facing the top side in the competition.

The 26-year-old was said to be quite upset over Leicester's Thai owners rejection of City's proposal of a record KSh 9.4 billion fee, and an unnamed player. We are backing a 3-1 City win as our prediction in this game. "It's hard to start and have a certain position against them - but it's a lot of goals conceded, which is a shame". The Foxes got their reward in the 24th minute, when Jamie Vardy pounced on a Kyle Walker giveaway, beat Aymeric Laporte and finished into the corner.

Mahrez has scored eight goals and contributed seven assists in the Premier League this season, with Leicester eighth in the table after taking one point from games against Everton and Swansea City in the winger's absence.

Leicester came to pick up Kelechi (Iheanacho, who signed for Leicester from City in the summer), so we did it.
