Burnley were thrashed yet again by Manchester City, with Riyad Mahrez scoring a hat-trick at the Etihad Stadium.
Riyad Mahrez scored a hat-trick as Manchester City thrashed Burnley 5-0 on Saturday in a timely response to criticism of their early-season form.
The Algeria international struck twice in the first half to surpass 100 goal involvements in the Premier League and put City in total control.
Burnley had brief respite when a third City effort was disallowed, but Benjamin Mendy's clever finish – his first goal in English football – effectively ended the contest before half-time.
Ferran Torres also got his first league goal for City before substitute Phil Foden crossed for Mahrez to complete his treble and cap a supremely comfortable outing at the Etihad Stadium.
