Mahrez stats

Mahrez's team-mate Jamie Vardy finished runner-up, having held the No 2 spot for the majority of the season. Premier League top-scorer Harry Kane had overtaken Vardy after the 29-year-old sat out two matches through suspension, but Tottenham's end-of-season collapse saw Kane drop to No 3.
