Mahrez hails Leicester matchwinner Slimani: He's always ready

Riyad Mahrez hailed Leicester City matchwinner Islam Slimani after victory over Champions League opponents Porto.

The Foxes lead Group G with six points from two games and are now in pole position to qualify for the knockout stages in their first venture into the competition.

Fellow Algerian Mahrez supplied the pass for Slimani and said: “Islam is always ready in the box. I just put the ball in and he was there.

“We have six points from six and the next game is at home and we need the points too, as it is always more difficult at home."
