Mahrez grabs hat-trick as ruthless City put Burnley to sword
Riyad Mahrez scored his first Manchester City hat-trick as Pep Guardiola’s side beat Burnley 5-0 at Etihad Stadium for the fourth time in a row. The Algerian curled two first-half efforts into the corner to ease any concerns about a perceived City scoring drought.
Benjamin Mendy drove home Kevin de Bruyne’s cross for his first City goal before half-time and Ferran Torres turned home his first Premier League goal after the break following a brief period of Burnley pressure. Mahrez steered the hosts to their biggest win of the season by completing his first treble since scoring all three for Leicester City in a victory at Swansea City in December 2015 as the Foxes marched towards the title.
It could have been worse for visitors Burnley – and their keeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell, who was making his Premier League debut with first-choice Nick Pope missing because of injury. In addition to De Bruyne slamming a shot against a post in the final minute, Torres and Gabriel Jesus both had goals disallowed for offside – with both having involved major mistakes from the Northern Ireland keeper.
