Mahrez reflects on personal form after netting 50th City goal

Riyad Mahrez is delighted to have claimed a 50th strike for City but insists the success of the team is his biggest priority.

The Algerian reached his latest milestone with a composed finish in our 4-0 triumph away to Newcastle United, which saw City break two English top flight records in the process.

Victory at St. James’ Park also represented an eighth Premier League victory on the spin for Pep Guardiola’s men, and Mahrez says maintaining that impressive run will be crucial moving into 2022.

“I feel good at the moment, as long as it helps the team to achieve and to win the games, that’s all that matters for me.

“It’s always good to score but everyone needs to contribute to win games, that’s the most important thing.


“We try and be consistent or else you wouldn’t win leagues and trophies.

“The most important thing is to be consistent, sometimes it’s not easy but we have to try to be focused every game and give everything.

“We know we have the quality to arrive at the end. We’re in a good moment and we have to keep it up and keep going.”
