Vardy and Mahrez will have say in where Leicetser end up - Albrighton

Leicester City winger Marc Albrighton believes the form of teammates Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez will have a major bearing on the Foxes' hopes of maintaining top spot on the Premier League ladder.


Vardy and Mahrez have bagged 24 goals between them already this season, with a hat-trick from the latter firing Leicester to a 3-0 win over Swansea on Saturday.

"Teams fear us going forward," Albrighton said.

"We know that we have got that security. We will obviously do our best to keep clean sheets but if we can't keep a clean sheet then we will go up the other end and score.

"If Riyad and Jamie keep scoring the goals it will play a massive part in where we end up this season."
