AFRICAN SUPERSTAR NETS HAT-TRICK AS CITY RUN RIOT

Riyad Mahrez grabbed a hat-trick as Manchester City thrashed Burnley 5-0 in Premier League action on Saturday evening.

 

The Citizens got off to the perfect start when Riyad Mahrez opened the scoring on six minutes after pouncing on an error to calmly slot home.

 

The Algerian showed his class once again on 22 minutes after cutting onto his left side before firing a powerful strike past Baily Peacock-Farrel.

 

Burnley had lost 5-0 in each of their last three visits to the Etihad, so it was no surprise to see City take a three-goal lead just before the break.

 

City talisman Kevin de Bruyne sent a fine cross to the far post, where Benjamin Mendy was on hand to slot into the far corner for his first goal for the club.

 

After a quiet start to the second half, City bagged the fourth goal on 66 minutes as Kyle Walker did well to pick out Torres for the close-range finish.

 

It would be another five goals conceded on a trip to the Etihad for Burnley when Mahrez completed his hat-trick three minute later, nodding home a cross from substitute Phil Foden.
