Riyad Mahrez’s performance for Leicester City against Tottenham Hotspur last night appears to have drawn a mixed reaction from supporters of the North London club.
Mahrez was selected to start for Leicester yesterday, but was part of a Foxes team who were overawed by Spurs.
Tottenham won 6-1 at the King Power Stadium, and they managed to put in a stunning performance.
Harry Kane netted four times, with Heung Min-Son scoring twice - in a highly impressive triumph.
Mahrez caught some Spurs fans’ eyes, despite the heavy defeat, but others were less impressed.

Mahrez has been poor— COYS (@YeeSpurs) May 18, 2017
@TomCStandard Disagree. Mahrez has looked good for me. Definitely has the ability to play in this spurs team— Michael Loberman (@lobo2210) May 18, 2017
Not sure Mahrez is the type of winger we need. Definitely need a Mane type and hopefully his level this summer, pace to exploit teams— Hamid (@HamidTHFC) May 18, 2017
Tottenham are believed to be interested in signing Mahrez in the summer transfer window, with Mauricio Pochettino having identified the Algerian as a potential addition (Telegraph).
Mahrez is apparently hoping to play for a side in the Champions League, and Spurs could offer him that.
