The Algeria international has been voted as the best player in the English top-flight ahead of the Super Eagles attacker
Manchester City winger Riyad Mahrez has been announced as the winner of the PFA Fans’ Player of the Month award for March, beating Leicester City forward Kelechi Iheanacho to the individual accolade.
The Algeria star bagged three goals in four league games last month for the Citizens, including his brace against Southampton.
The impressive performances were convincing enough for the forward to be voted as the best player by the fans ahead of Iheanacho, who delivered spectacular performances for the Foxes.
The 24-year-old attacker scored five goals, including his second hat-trick of his career, against Sheffield United, for the King Power Stadium outfit.
Mahrez also beat off competition from Manchester United’s Luke Shaw, Arsenal’s Alexandre Lacazette, West Ham United’s Jesse Lingard and Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane, to win the prize.
