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.
Where will Manchester City finish this season?

Foden and Mahrez have been incredible as Sterling’s goals have dried up.
