Former Aston Villa midfielder Marc Albrighton believes his transfer to Leicester City has revitalised him and think he is in the best form of his career.

The 25-year-old featured in 86 Premier League matches for Villa before surprisingly being handed a free transfer and joining the Foxes last summer.

He played a key role in the closing weeks of last season as Leicester successfully avoided relegation from the Premier League, featuring in nine matches in April and May.

He has started the current campaign in equally impressive form, scoring in the 4-2 victory against Sunderland.

Albrighton also starred in the fine 2-1 victory at West Ham United on Saturday and has contributed three assists in City’s two Premier League matches.

He said: “I am certainly getting to where I want to be. When I burst on to the scene at Villa, it was going well and probably down to a couple of reasons it has never kicked on from there.

“But I’ve always said that if I can get a run of games in the team, get playing and get fit and get where I want to be, then my performances will come. Last season, proved me right and hopefully I can continue that.”

Albrighton’s goal against Sunderland was his third for the Foxes and he has now made 22 appearances for the club.

Claudio Ranieri’s side are 2.70 to beat Tottenham on Saturday and make it nine points from their first three matches.

A Spurs win can be backed at 2.75 while the draw is available at 3.30.
