Mahrez and Vardy can realise dreams with Leicester

Robbie Savage has backed Leicester City to continue their sublime form and win the Premier League title and keep hold of star performers Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez. 

Leicester City are five points clear at the top of the table with 13 games to play, though some pundits still doubt whether Claudio Ranieri's men can pull off what would be one of the most remarkable achievements in English football history due to their rivals' supposedly greater strength in depth. 

However, after watching Leicester dismantle previous title favourites Manchester City 3-1 at the Etihad Stadium, Savage believes the impossible is now possible for a side that was rock bottom of the table at the same stage last season. 

Savage, who won the League Cup during his five-year spell with the Foxes between 1997 and 2002, believes Vardy and Mahrez are an attacking duo capable of propelling Leicester to a first ever top-flight title. 

"I honestly believe that after that performance against Man City - to go to the Etihad and play like that - that they can go on now to lift the title," Savage told reporters. 

"Vardy was playing non-league football a few years ago and now he has just signed a new contract. 

"Mahrez was signed for £400,000. It is important they keep hold of him now because the way these two have played together is unbelievable. It's like a film story." 

"If they do move to a new club, I don't think there will be much of a problem for them because they will still scare defenders with their pace," Savage said. 

"Pace is the most valuable thing for them and if Leicester don't win the league and they move to a bigger club, then I doubt they will have problems in adapting. 

"But I firmly believe they will finish in the top four, so why leave? Besides, with the increase in TV revenue, Leicester have the money to keep these players.
