Video: Riyad Mahrez sets up Andy King goal for Leicester City with amazing pass

A year ago today Leicester City were at the bottom of the Premier League table, but when players like Riyad Mahrez are making sublime passes like the one to set up Andy King, you can see why they’ve turned it around.

Leicester City found themselves behind early against visiting West Bromwich Albion, but they turned it around and by the end of the first half they’ve taken the lead thanks to goals from Danny Drinkwater and the aforementioned King. King’s goal was all about the first touch from Mahrez though. The ball came in from the left and with his first touch Mahrez performs a side-footed flick-on right into the path of King who finished easily.

Leicester now need to hold on for another 45 minutes if they hope to regain their five point lead over Tottenham, and put pressure on Spurs for tomorrow.
