Riyad Mahrez: Celebrates scoring for Leicester City at West Brom

Riyad Mahrez is “really enjoying” playing for Leicester City and hopes they can continue to play attacking football to keep upsetting the odds.

Mahrez helped the Foxes move up to third in the Premier League standings on Saturday with a 3-2 win at West Brom.

The winger hit two second-half goals as Claudio Ranieri’s side came from behind, with Jamie Vardy also scoring for the eighth game in a row.

The Foxes are unbeaten on the road in the league and have won 10 points from losing positions, and Mahrez does not want them to change.

“I am really enjoying playing in this team,” he told the club’s website. “We are playing attacking football, not staying behind (the ball) and that’s the mark of the team. We have to keep going like this. Everyone is happy – the team, the players and the city.

“Away we have come back from two goals, one goal. In the first half we played very well. We spoke at half-time and said ‘we can do it, we can make it happen’. We played like we do always.

“I was very happy to win, especially away. It was a difficult game and West Brom are a very good team. We played very well.

“I know Marc (Albrighton) has a very good foot – he can put the ball where you want. I believed on his cross. I am happy but the most important thing is the team.”
