Mahrez signed for a fee of £60m from Leicester back in the summer, but has been an unused substitute in the last three games as he struggles to dislodge Raheem Sterling and Bernardo Silva from the team – both of whom are up for the PFA Player of the Year award, in fairness.
442oons have charted the entire career of Man City’s main man Sergio Aguero through song in the hilarious video below…
The 28-year-old Algerian international believes that his technical ability should have yielded more than just 13 Premier League starts, although he has failed to deliver in key moments.
Mahrez, the Citizens’ record signing, missed a late penalty at Anfield in the 0-0 draw earlier in the season, a blunder which, had he scored, would have made the title race a lot easier for his teammates right now – he was also ineffective against Tottenham in the 1-0 Champions League quarter-final first leg loss.
As a result of these shortcomings – he was also substituted in the FA Cup against Swansea with City 2-0 down – the Citizens supporters on Twitter feel that he needs to do more to earn a starting place…
He’d do well to know that performances warrant minutes, not ‘technical ability’.

He’s the most skillful player at City. Everyone knows that. The players said it as well. But when all you do is cut inside and shoot, you’re bound to be dropped for a player who does more and contributes more. That’s how it is in football, especially in a top 5 team in the world.

He just needs to fight for his spot. I don’t want to hear him complain about playing time. You came to the best club in England and you think you deserve to just be put in the starting 11 every week? Prove you deserve it, like Bernardo did.

If we lose the league it will be his fault. So I hope we can say bye bye to him this summer

A waste of money

He litterally isn’t a team player, all he does is cuts in and puts it over the bar or does stupid crosses to nobody, if he learns to adapt to our playing style the potential is huge, only then him cutting in and shooting would be fine

If he wants more starts then play better. It really is that simple.

He pushed for this move. Up to him to make it work. Won’t be griping about his wages
