Leicester winger Riyad Mahrez has labelled the collapse of Tottenham's Premier League title challenge as the funniest moment of last season.
The 25-year-old was named the 2015/16 PFA Player of the Year after enjoying a season to remember as the Foxes completed a remarkable rise from relegation candidates to Premier League champions.
Tottenham had kept pace at the top, but threw away a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 at Chelsea in May to hand Leicester their first league title in their 132 year history.
Mahrez and some of his Leicester team-mates watched the match from Stamford Bridge at Jamie Vardy's house and the Algeria international has revealed what his feelings were on that historic evening.
"The funniest moment [of last season]? I think it was when Tottenham were 2-0 ahead of Chelsea," he told FourFourTwo.
"All the team were at [Jamie] Vardy's house thinking 'we're probably not going to be champions tonight.
"I was like, 'What's the point of coming?!' and then 2-1, 2-2. It was funny."
