Didi Hamann and Ian Wright react on Twitter to Riyad Mahrez's Leicester City wondergoal

Leicester City

Leicester's Riyad Mahrez had former stars swooning over his finish.

Riyad Mahrez's sensational season shows absolutely no sign of slowing down.

After a hat-trick a week ago against Swansea, he buried an absolute pearler against Chelsea with the world watching on.

Mahrez is increasing his reputation game by game, and had former professionals expressing their amazement after his excellent goal had put the Foxes 2-0 up.

Mahrez's strike even had Apprentice host Lord Sugar impressed, also taking to Twitter to applaud the effort.

Algerian international Mahrez is even emerging as a contender for player of the season alongside teammate Jamie Vardy, who struck the opener against Jose Mourinho's side.

Leicester may have a challenge to hang onto the pair in the January transfer window - but both players would be mad to move on and not see through what they have started so successfully over the first half of the campaign.

Claudio Ranieri's side are now top of the table, while Chelsea currently sit just one point above the relegation zone.
