Manchester City’s club record signing Riyad Mahrez says fans have yet to see the best of him at the Etihad Stadium and is confident his form will improve in the second half of the season.
Mahrez, who arrived from Leicester City in the summer, has taken time to adjust and 8 of his 17 appearances in the Premier League have come off the bench.
However, the Algerian winger believes that with his adaptation period coming to an end, we’ll see the same player who inspired Leicester to the title and was named PFA Player of the Year.
“When you arrive the first six months it’s always difficult to adapt to everything,” Mahrez told Sky Sports.
“I’m very good. I’m still new to the team. I think more months are going to pass and I’m going to be better.”
Mahrez also spoke about the title race with Liverpool and how there is so little margin for error.
“It’s massive because you have to win now, every time,” Mahrez said.
“You don’t have any chance to drop points because when you drop points, the opponent wins and now they’re in front of us, for example Liverpool.”
