EPL: Mahrez hat trick inspires dominant Manchester City

Algerian playmaker Riyad Mahrez was the star of the show as Manchester City thrashed Burnley 5-0 in the English Premier League, EPL, on Saturday.

After what has been a bizarre start to the season by the side coached by Pep Guardiola, they found their real level on Saturday inspired by Algerian star, Mahrez who scored first ever hat trick for the Cityzens.

The former Leicester City sensation opened the scoring as early as the sixth minute when he latched on to a Kevin De Bruyne pass to curl home the opener for the hosts. 

He doubled their lead on 22 minutes this time after he reacted fastest to a Kyle Walker quick throw-in to put some distance between them the Clarets.

Two more goals from Benjamin Mendy, his first for Manchester City just before the break, and another by Ferran Torres after, handed City a comfortable 4-0 lead before Mahrez completed his hattrick.

The 29-year-old 2019 African champion completed his hattrick and sealed the win for City with a header after he connected brilliantly to a Phil Foden cross on 69 minutes.

A man of the match performance for Mahrez who takes his goal tally to 4 goals in 7 PL appearances for City this season.

It does seem he loves scoring against Burnley as he now has 7 goals in his last 4 matches against the Clarets.
