The Algeria winger also ended the game with an assist, setting up Ilkay Gundogan’s goal to make it 2-0 to the visitors shortly before half-time. [via Sky Sports]

In addition to his contribution last night, the 28-year-old has provided three assists in the Premier League already this season, but has started just two of their five league matches so far in 2019/20 and had 308 minutes of game time. [via TransferMarkt.co.uk]

Mahrez’s main competition on the right-wing has been Bernardo Silva, who has started three of their first five league games and played for 347 minutes so far this season. However, the Portugal forward has only one goal and one assist to his name in 2019/20 and had to be content with a late appearance off the bench against Shakhtar.

These Manchester City fans on Twitter feel that Mahrez should be Pep Guardiola’s first-choice right-winger instead of Bernardo Silva:
