Riyad Mahrez May Have Scored A Goal Of The Season Contender Vs Leicester City

Riyad Mahrez put Manchester City ahead against former side Leicester City with a wicked half-volley.

City welcomed Leicester to the Etihad with no recognised striker on the pitch after injury ruled out Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus.

It didn't matter however as they were in front inside four minutes thanks to Mahrez.

Kevin De Bruyne whipped a corner into the Leicester box which James Justin headed clear, before Mahrez slammed his shot past a helpless Kasper Schmeichel.


Fans have reacted to the Algerian's strike and they think it is the perfect way to mark your 200th Premier League appearance.



Mahrez was a Leicester player for four years and won the Premier League with the Foxes back in 2016.

Pep Guardiola's side dominated the ball throughout the first half and Leicester looked devoid of ideas going forward.


But one quick counter attack saw Jamie Vardy hauled down in the box by Kyle Walker and referee Michael Oliver pointed to the spot.

Vardy dispatched the penalty and the scores are level at the break.

Who do you think will go on to win the game, Manchester City or Leicester City?
