Riyad Mahrez releases statement after Leicester training return

Man City v Leicester City – Live TV Coverage on Sky Sports

According to reports at the game, the Leicester fans weren't happy with Mahrez's return.

In their last league fixture, Manchester City dropped points only for the fourth occasion this season as they were held 1-1 by Burnley at Turf Moor. The best bet is the over 2.5 goals is since Manchester City will probably get 3 goals on their own.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola wants Riyad Mahrez to make his Leicester return against the Premier League leaders on Saturday despite continued speculation linking the Algerian to City.

"Riyad Mahrez has today returned to training with the Leicester City squad", Leicester said in a statement, whilst a video of a smiling Mahrez training was also posted on the club's Twitter feed.

The 26-year-old was said to be quite upset over Leicester's Thai owners rejection of City's proposal of a record KSh 9.4 billion fee, and an unnamed player for Mahrez.

Wenger: Kane made the difference, that's what he's about
Came on and helped Arsenal add some pressure and should have equalized when he missed a couple of glorious chances in stoppage time .

"I would go as far as to say that if you look at the likes of Cesc Fabregas, Frank Lampard and Ryan Giggs - the top assist makers in the Premier League - I think he is the best I've ever seen at passing the ball". Poor form from our closest competitors has left us still just one point from 7th, and four points clear of 9th, but the Foxes need to turn this around. "I think everyone knows Riyad has the ability to play at the highest level, so I understand his disappointment, definitely".

City opened the scoring in only the third minute, Raheem Sterling showing he learned his lesson from a terrible miss against Burnley last week and tapping in at the back post.

And commenting on four-goal hero Aguero, Guardiola said: "Sergio has an unbelievable talent in the box, so we try to create a lot of chances to score the goals he does, and he always does". The match at the Etihad will be the third consecutive league game the winger has missed since Pep Guardiola's City failed to get their man on January 31, transfer deadline day.

"We have tomorrow and three days later the Champions League, five days for the next one, five days for the final". After that we were not in the right positions to play quicker. Kelechi Iheanacho is expected to start once again alongside Jamie Vardy in the Japanese's absence.
