Manchester City were, somehow, held to a 2-2 draw at home to Tottenham on Saturday in the Premier League’s later kick-off, with a Lucas Moura header making sure the points were shared.

The fans, though, after conceding to Lucas to make the score 2-2, all wanted the same change. The Cityzens below were desperate for Riyad Mahrez to be introduced to the action, which you will see in the tweets below, although they had to wait until the 80th minute for Mahrez’s entrance.
The Algerian winger shone last week against West Ham in the club’s Premier League opener, earning himself a 9/10 rating from The Manchester Evening News, it wasn’t the same against Spurs, though, although it could have been had he been given more time to impose himself.

The Cityzens didn’t mince their words calling for Mahrez’s introduction on Saturday, although when it came, the winger had just ten short minutes to play.
