Mahrez: We’ll Do Everything To Win It
- Premier League football returns to King Power Stadium on Saturday
- Mahrez wants the Foxes to replicate their battling performance against FC Copenhagen
Leicester City will give their all to secure three Premier League points when they take on Crystal Palace on Saturday, according to winger Riyad Mahrez.
Palace have lost just once in their last six Premier League fixtures, with that defeat coming against West Ham United last time out.
But a 1-0 win at King Power Stadium on Tuesday over FC Copenhagen saw the Foxes put in a determined performance and Mahrez believes that must be replicated against Alan Pardew’s men.
“We’re feeling good,” Mahrez told LCFC TV. “We trained on Thursday and Friday, so we’re fit and we’re ready to fight.
“We are at home and Crystal Palace are a good team. They will try to put us under pressure but we just have to give our best to win the game.
“Beating Copenhagen was a big boost. It made us very happy and we have a lot of confidence so it was important to win on Tuesday. We’re looking forward to the game on Saturday and we’ll do everything to win it.
“Copenhagen were a strong team and Crystal Palace will be on Saturday, so it’ll require the same performance.
“We need to play as we always do at home – with pace and everything we have in the team. If we play our game I think we can win.”
Mahrez netted the only goal of the game against Copenhagen, linking up well with striker Islam Slimani, who provided the knock-down for his international team-mate.
“I’m enjoying playing with him just like everyone else,” Mahrez said of Slimani. “He’s my team-mate with Algeria so we find each other quickly.
“We know how to find each other and he’s good to play with, so we just need to keep playing like that.”
