After Manchester City laid to rest a harrowing 3-2 loss at Wolves, beating Sheffield United 2-0 at home to round off a superb 2019 in style, supporters have lauded the partnership of Riyad Mahrez and Kevin De Bruyne – with both players making an influential contribution in their latest victory at the Etihad Stadium.
The away side were denied an opening goal when VAR brought it back for a marginal offside decision, with City playmaker De Bruyne eventually putting Sergio Aguero in on goal to score the first of the game.
Should Man City sign Isco?
Later on, in the dying minutes of a nervy contest, Mahrez and the Belgian linked up for a brilliant second – with the former Leicester City man laying the ball off to De Bruyne who wrong footed Blades ‘keeper Dean Henderson with a superb finish.
Taking this into account, supporters have lauded the partnership of these two players – contemplating the potential of the pair if they link up regularly.
Here’s what they had to say on Twitter.
Best two players in the world
