Manchester City: Football fans flock to hail Riyad Mahrez following 6-1 Aston Villa rout

Manchester City: Football fans flock to hail Riyad Mahrez following 6-1 Aston Villa rout - Manchester City

Manchester City winger Riyad Mahrez put on another brilliant display as his side strolled to a dominant 6-1 victory at the expense of relegation-threatened Aston Villa, resulting in these football fans flocking to social media and hailing the ‘underrated’ star after his brace in the Midlands on Sunday evening.

Mahrez, who signed for the Sky Blues in the summer of 2018, briefly smashing their transfer record at that time for a £60 million fee from Leicester City, has been a much-improved asset since the start of this campaign. The Algerian winger has, so far, accumulated seven goals and seven assists this season – bettering his numbers in half the time when compared to his debut campaign for Pep Guardiola’s side, as per SofaScore.

Now, after scoring a brace at Villa Park which set his side on their way to securing a dominant victory, football fans, in general, have flocked to praise a brilliant showing from the African Cup of Nations winner. One even suggested he was better than Liverpool’s Mo Salah, with the former Leicester City man having averaged more shots per game, key passes and dribbles than the Egyptian according to WhoScored.

Having said all that, see some of their best reactions to the 28-year-old below.

City fans, does Mahrez deserve more recognition for his stand out contributions as of late? Join the discussion by commenting below…
