Riyad Mahrez has now scored or assisted exactly 50% of Leicester's goals this season

The Foxes could go eight points clear at the top if they win today.

LEICESTER TRIUMPHED 1-0 against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park in today’s Premier League 3pm clash.

Unsurprisingly, prolific duo Riyad Mahrez and Jamie Vardy were at the heart of the only goal, with the latter crossing for the former to fire home.

Mahrez has now been involved in 27 of the Foxes’ goals this season — exactly half of their total of 54 goals — scoring 16 and assisting 11.
