Mahrez celebrates his goal against Sunderland.

Mahrez has been on fire for in-form Leicester City this season, and it seems as though he has taken that confidence into the latest international break as well.

The midfielder and his Algeria team-mates faced Tanzania in their two-legged play-off tie to reach the group stages for 2018 World Cup qualification, but got off to a surprise start, drawing 2-2 with their opponents.

However, as he has done for Jamie Vardy on numerous occasions this term, Mahrez turned provider, setting up both goals for team-mate Islam Slimani in that game, before netting once in the 7-0 thrashing in the second-leg.
