Riyad Mahrez Injury Boost For Leicester

Riyad Mahrez has given Leicester an injury boost ahead of their Monday Night Football game against Newcastle. The Algeria midfielder came off after scoring the winner in the 1-0 victory at Watford on Saturday which moved Leicester five points clear at the top of the Premier League.

There were fears he had suffered a hamstring injury but his manager Claudio Ranieri has confirmed the striker has trained this week and is fit to face Newcastle. He said “Now we are not thinking about how many points, we are thinking about Newcastle. It's a difficult match, they are in a dangerous position.  I can't believe why, they spent more than £100m and I think it will be another difficult match. They are fighting to survive. I am very surprised they are struggling, they have a good manager, good players and fantastic fans”.

Meanwhile, long-term injury victim Matty James is close to a recovery after returning to full training following a knee injury he suffered last year.
