The Algerian's strike in City's 4-1 win at Burnley last night was his 50th in the competition, elevating him into some elite continental company.
Only nine African stars have hit the fifty mark in England's top-flight, and Mahrez is the very first Algerian player to bring up his half-century having done so across his time at Leicester City and current Champions Manchester City.
Mahrez is also part of an exclusive club of players to have won the Premier League title with two different clubs. Let's see how the 28-year-old stacks up against Africa's elite goal-poachers in the English top-flight.
🌍🎯 African stars with 50 or more EPL goals
- 🇨🇮 Didier Drogba 104
- 🇹🇬 Emmanuel Adebayor 97
- 🇳🇬 Yakubu 95
- 🇸🇳 Sadio Mané 74*
- 🇨🇮 Yaya Touré 62

- 🇳🇬 Efan Ekoku 52
- 🇩🇿 Riyad Mahrez 50*
Man City's next assignment is the Manchester Derby against city rivals United at Etihad Stadium, where Mahrez will be hoping to be involved from the start.
