The Algeria international was impressive in the outing forcing Federico Fernandez to score an own goal before providing the assist for the second goal which made the difference in the game.
The Foxes started the week with a 1-1 draw with West Bromwich Albion on Monday before confronting Paul Clement’s side and Mahrez took to the social media to acknowledge the tight schedule but delighted with the win on Saturday while appreciating the fans for their support.
“Difficult week but Massive 3 points yesterday. Thanks to the fans,” Mahrez wrote on Instagram.
The forward has registered a goal this season and will hope to build on this striking performance when Leicester square up with Leeds United in the League Cup on Tuesday.
