As for Mahrez, both of his goals came in the second half, giving Man City a 3-1 lead and then finishing 4-1. Mahrez's first goal came from a corner kick as he fired an unreal delivery past a diving David De Gea. His second goal was also a rocket.
Don't forget Phil Foden as he gets a nine for his performance. The speedy winger stormed the pitch consistently and regularly caused problems for the United defense. Foden continued his unreal season.
Next up for Man City next week is a Champions League showdown against Sporting Lisbon. MCFC have a 5-0 aggregate advantage heading into this encounter as they have essentially completed a trip to the quarter-finals. Fans will hope Pep Guardiola's men can win the Champions League and EPL crowns this spring.
