So often the inspiration for their respective sides this season, Al Hain-Cole is backing Riyad Mahrez to outshine Mesut Ozil in Sunday's top-of-the-table clash at the Emirates
Paddy Power have some enhanced odds available to new customers on this blockbuster clash, meaning anyone opening an account
Boasting 18 goals to his name, Premier League top scorer Jamie Vardy is the Foxes’ 6/1 (7.00) favourite with Paddy Power to open the scoring against a team he put two past in September’s reverse fixture, and on offer at 9/5 (2.80) to merely find the net.
Arguably the star of Claudio Ranieri’s overachieving team, Riyad Mahrez, pushed his case for individual accolades even further by becoming the first Premier League player to hit double figures for both goals and assists in last weekend’s impressive win over Manchester City.
Paddy Power have his anytime odds at 13/5 (3.60) for the trip to the capital and the Algerian maestro looks well worth a punt to add to his 14 league goals so far.
One of a few players who could stand in Mahrez’s way when the Player of the Season award is handed out is Mesut Ozil, who has been at the centre of everything good about the Gunners this campaign.
Having got Arsene Wenger’s men off the mark on the way to a first victory in five league games against Bournemouth last time out, the German playmaker is priced at 11/5 (3.20) to come to the fore once again with a second goal in consecutive games.
Without a strike in his last five appearances, top scorer Olivier Giroud is even money (2.00) favourite to return to form by scoring for the second match in a row against the league leaders.
Giroud was actually overshadowed in his side’s 5-2 victory in the reverse fixture by hat-trick hero Alexis Sanchez, who can be backed at 7/5 (2.20) to get on the scoresheet once again.
Finally, having struck twice at the Etihad Stadium last time out, Robert Huth is a 9/1 (10.00) long shot to become Leicester's unlikely hero against the second title rival in succession.
