Mahrez coming into his own says Leicester teammate King

Andy King believes that Riyad Mahrez is currently in the peak of his powers.

Leicester City continued their fine start to the Premier League campaign with a 2-1 victory over West Ham United on Saturday and the star on the day for the Foxes was once again winger Mahrez.

Algeria international Mahrez tallied his third goal of the campaign and teammate King believes that the best is yet to come from the 24-year=old.

King said: "He is such a talented boy, and with his age now he is probably coming into his peak. It is brilliant for everyone involved with the club that he has signed his new contract. With three goals in two games, I am sure we will not be hearing the end of that."
