Soccer – Mahrez’s form pleases Puel

Leicester City boss Claude Puel believes Riyad Mahrez's return to form has been the catalyst for the Foxes' recent excellent run. Leicester have secured ten points from a possible 12 in their last four Premier League games, with Algeria international Mahrez scoring crucial goals in the victories against Tottenham and Newcastle. Former Southampton manager Puel said ahead of Leicester's game at St Mary's on Wednesday: "I think at this moment it is amazing to see Riyad play. With possession he is good and good without possession. "He scored a fantastic goal at Newcastle, but at the beginning he was defending on the edge of his own box." The Foxes are available at 29/10 with bet365 to beat Southampton while Mahrez is priced at 7/2 to score at any time in the game.
