- The Algerian international netted three times while also providing two assists
- City have settled in the Premier League's top half over the past month
- Mahrez enjoyed a successful pass percentage of 78 per cent in 594 minutes across December

The 26-year-old forward found the net on three occasions last month while also providing two assists as City solidified their position in the top half.

Mahrez’s first strike of December came from distance during a 3-2 triumph over Newcastle United at St James’ Park before adding another stunner in a 4-1 victory at Southampton.

After setting up Jamie Vardy to score his 50th Premier League goal, City’s first in a 2-2 draw with Manchester United, he later repeated the feat at Liverpool too.

His final effort of 2017, meanwhile, was a well-placed header for the Foxes during a narrow 2-1 reverse at Watford on Boxing Day.
