2/ Riyad Mahrez of Leicester City.

For Riyad Mahrez this season, it looks as if something has suddenly clicked. His neat and agile footwork has elevated to a more penetrative level this campaign, as Mahrez has racked up 5 goals and 3 assists already. Whether instilled by the player himself or with the aid of Claudio Ranieri, Mahrez looks a player fresh with confidence.

Mahrez’s energy typifies Leicester City’s new found bullishness. Ranieri has been careful to quell an overabundance of optimism, reaffirming Premiership survival as Leicester’s chief objective. The Leicester manager recognises that the Foxes do not have the squad depth to produce show-stopping comebacks every game and that tougher spells of form await.

But regardless of momentum, Leicester City know that with Mahrez in their team, they can rely on their very own Fantastic Mr. Fox.
