​Mahrez delighted to play alongside Man City teammate De Bruyne

Manchester City star Riyad Mahrez had a lot of good things to say about his teammate Kevin De Bruyne.

The Belgian was in fine form as City swept aside second placed Leicester City in their key clash at the weekend.

City went behind, but rallied to claim a 3-1 win to keep up the pace for a second place finish this season.

Mahrez was asked about his thoughts on De Bruyne after the game.

"He is very good," the winger told reporters.

"He has a lot of quality so he helps us a lot. It's great to have a player like him in the team.

"Every game he contributes to the team, so I'm happy to have him with us."
