Who Will Replace Riyad Mahrez For Leicester As They Host In-Form Swansea?

But he was AWOL for Wednesday's game at Theo Walcott's Everton which Leicester lost 2-1

We will reassess Riyad when he has cleared his head.

The Algeria worldwide was identified as the ideal replacement for injured Leroy Sane but Manchester City failed in attempt to land him due to a reported £80 price-tag determined by his club Leicester City.

The £80m-rated star won't be in action against Swansea after doing bunk following his collapsed move to Manchester City.

City's interest in Mahrez became apparent on January 30, one day before the deadline, but Leicester steadfastly refused to sell for anything less than an enormous offer.

Riyad Mahrez will not be included in Leicester City boss Claude Puel's squad for the visit of Swansea City as the Algerian's standoff with the Foxes for their refusal to entertain a deadline day bid from Manchester City rumbles on.

"There is perhaps disappointment for Riyad but I think all the players, all the squad will help him to come back".

What makes the failed deal even worse for Mahrez is that there was some confusion between the two clubs in negotiating.

China sees Taiwan as a breakaway province that will eventually be part of the country again, but many Taiwanese want a separate nation.

United are as short as 2/15 to win the game on the Sportsbook, so that tells us all we need to know about who is likely to dominate this match.

"Riyad is not available for this game".

"I hope he can come back quickly with us, and with a smile and happy to play with us". "He is an important player for us, of course", added Puel. We have to move forward and to have focus on the football.

Now City are the side looking to capture him, and if Coutinho's huge move to Barca is anything to go by then they may need to dig deep to get their man.

Almost two years have passed since Mahrez helped the Foxes win the Premier League title and so you can understand why he's so upset.

On top of that, Mahrez has a Premier League winner's medal, PFA Players of the Year award and African Player of the Year award in his trophy cabinet.

Mourinho's men regularly scored four in a game earlier in the season, but four of their last five Premier League gams at Old Trafford against non "big-six" clubs have finished 1-0 (v Brighton), 1-0 (v Bournemouth), 2-2 (v Burnley), and 0-0 (v Southampton).
