Watch: Riyad Mahrez doubles Leicester's lead at Manchester City

Saturday February 6th, 2016

After setting up Leicester City's first goal at Manchester City, Riyad Mahrez took things into his own feet to silence the Etihad Stadium crowd.

Mahrez netted his 14th goal of the season three minutes into the second half of Leicester's first-place bout vs. Man City, capping another trademark Leicester counterattack with a piece of individual brilliance.

Upon receiving the ball from Ngolo Kante, Mahrez evaded a crunching tackle by leaping over a sliding defender, cut the ball to his right foot and rifled a shot by Joe Hart to double the Foxes' lead. It was Mahrez's free kick that set Robert Huth up for the opener in the third minute.
