Riyad Mahrez knows every single one of his teammates made a crucial contribution in the 2-0 victory over Paris Saint-Germain.

The Algerian’s brace earned City a deserved win at the Etihad Stadium, sending City to a place in a maiden Champions League final in the process.

Speaking after the win, Mahrez spoke about that and much more-

“When you play a semi-final of the Champions League you have to be solid, everyone has to contribute defensively and that’s what we did,” he declared.

“We were very solid today, didn’t concede much and that’s why we’re in the final.”

“Of course, we know he’s capable of putting the ball to the other goal!

“It’s something we work on all the time and today it worked good.

“I don’t think it was the game plan but they had to come at us, maybe sometimes we were a bit deeper and when they lost the ball we were good on the counter as well.

“That’s what the two goals was and we were happy.”

Just a fantastic performance.
