Manchester City returned to winning ways in the English Premier League with an emphatic 5-0 win over Newcastle United on Wednesday evening.

Algeria international Riyad Mahrez continued his good form, netting his 10th goal of the league season and in the process, he made history for the Cityzens.

City subsequently became the first side in Premier League history to have five players with 10+ goals in a single season. Mahrez joined teammates Sergio Aguero, Raheem Sterling, Gabriel Jesus and Kevin de Bruyne on double digits.

Mahrez has scored 12 goals and assisted a further 15 in 44 appearances across all competitions this season.
