Manchester City enjoyed a 2-0 win over Paris Saint-Germain to reach the Champions League final and Riyad Mahrez was one of many players to impress at the Etihad Stadium.

The 30-year-old grabbed a brace on the night and has now scored three of City’s four goals in the semi-finals. Mahrez’s future was uncertain earlier in the season, but he’s now indispensable under Pep Guardiola.
