Riyad Mahrez Brilliantly Avoids Brandon Williams Tackle By Nutmegging Him

Riyad Mahrez brilliantly avoided a challenge from Brandon Williams last night by jumping over him and nutmegging him.

The Algerian winger scored in Manchester City's 3-1 win over Manchester United last night and his main adversary of the night was Williams.

United's left-back performed admirably but he won't want to watch this moment again.

He attempts to dive in on Mahrez who delicately flicks the ball between his legs and jumps over the teenager.

Williams has already developed a reputation as a no nonsense tackler but he was very rash when going in on Mahrez.

Fans on Twitter were quick to comment on the incident and the technique Mahrez showed.

City dominated last night and the 3-1 scoreline ultimately flatters United.

Pep Guardiola's side didn't play with an orthodox striker but still managed to punish United's flaky back line.

Following the game, the Spaniard was keen to point out the improvement in his side since their 2-1 defeat to United in the Premier League last month.

"We lost the ball in a position which is so dangerous [for the United goal]. We cannot forget which team we play. Tonight we can be more than satisfied to come here to Old Trafford and win.

"It is not over. We have one more game and we'll see what happens.

"Of course Manchester United can come back. Last year here they lost to Paris St-Germain [in the Champions League] and qualified. They have the shirt which means history and pride."

United on the other hand have had a miserable start to 2020, with fans and pundits alike worried about their direction.
