The Algeria international was on target against the Red Devils in a goal-laden first-half to reach an enviable height this season

Riyad Mahrez was on target for Manchester City during Tuesday’s English Football League Cup semi-final first leg against Manchester United.

Starting his 19th match across all tournaments this term, the former Leicester City man found the net as Pep Guardiola’s men cruised to a 3-0 lead at half-time.

In the process, Mahrez has increased his goal involvement to 15 during that period.

The goal against Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men was his first since his last effort against the Foxes on December 21 in a Premier League game against his former team at the Etihad Stadium.

After Tuesday’s game, Manchester City are guests of Aston Villa in Sunday’s English elite division outing with Mahrez hoping to be in action.

The reigning English kings are third in the log with 44 points accrued from 21 outings.
