Riyad Mahrez reaches new Premier League milestone as Leicester hammer Manchester City

The winger reached double figures for goals and assists in the Premier League this season - and only one player was quicker to the milestone in Europe...


Riyad Mahrez has become the first player in the Premier League to reach double figures for goals and assists this season.

The Algeria international dazzled in Leicester City’s 3-1 win over Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday as he provided the corner for Robert Huth’s opener before scoring a fine solo effort in the second half.

The win has put Leicester six points clear at the top of the table, while Mahrez continues to remain as one of the standout stars in this season’s Premier League.

But while Mahrez was the first to reach the milestone in England, he wasn’t the first in Europe.

Out of all the players in the Premier League, La Liga, Serie A, Bundesliga and Ligue 1 - Napoli forward Lorenzo Insigne reached 10 goals and 10 assists earlier this week after he set up Jose Callejon’s strike in Wednesdy’s 2-0 win over Lazio.
