Riyad Mahrez: The First Half Was Good, We Were More Patient

Riyad Mahrez - The First Half Was Good, We Were More Patient

“He keeps scoring”, that is a famous phrase now for City fans and their rivals as the Algerian star – Riyad Mahrez put up yet another excellent performance against the Red DevilsMan United in a Manchester Derby were City took the victory with four (4) goals to one (1).

The City forward is having a great season so far in spite of being knocked out of the AFCON in group stages while he captained Algeria – The former champions of the same title. He has expressed his post-match thoughts in an interview with Sky Sports.

I think I touched the ball four times in half an hour. In my head I stayed focused, the ball would come and I’d have to make the difference. The first half was good, they took us on the counter, in the second half we were more patient, more controlled.

First, a player touched it, but I had to hit the target. The second one I hit it high because he’s good on the floor. I’ll take them both. Riyad Mahrez | Sky Sports
