Name: Riyad Mahrez
Position: Winger

Take your pick! Once again; not for the first time this season, there were plenty of players at the King Power Stadium that caught the eye and earned plaudits for their performances last month, but Riyad Mahrez’s displays topped the lot.

The 25-year-old, who is certainly in the running to be awarded the PFA Player of the Year award this term after a terrific campaign with the high-flying Foxes, added another two goals, plus an assist, to his impressive statistics under manager Claudio Ranieri this year.

The Algerian international, who joined Leicester City for a reported £400,000 from French outfit Le Havre back in January 2014, has remarkably scored 16 goals and provided 10 assists in 31 Premier League appearances for the league leaders so far this season.

Leicester are currently seven points clear of second placed Tottenham in the standings, and Mahrez’s impact throughout March significantly helped construct that gap.

Firstly Mahrez set up Andy King’s second goal against West Brom at the start of the month to salvage a 2-2 draw at the King Power, before the dynamic winger netted the only goal of the games in 1-0 wins over Watford and Crystal Palace respectively.
