Riyad Mahrez‘s hat trick against Swansea City was a no-nonsense trio of goals, with the Algerian winning a 50-50 ball for the first marker and coolly passing home the other two.
In winning the Round 15 honors, Mahrez becomes the first Premier League player to snare the award twice this season.
It’s his third multi-goal performance of the season. Mahrez has 10 goals and 6 assists in Leicester City’s early table-topping campaign.
