'F*cking hell, what are we doing!' - Mahrez on PL final day drama

A nervy final day fightback against Aston Villa was required to claim another major honour, and the Algeria star says it illustrates their hunger

Riyad Mahrez


Manchester City

won't rest on their laurels after last season's title scare.

Pep Guardiola

's City won last season's title against Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool.

They overcame a two-goal deficit in their final game to beat

Aston Villa

. Mahrez admits the ambition to win more titles remains and says their comeback against Steven Gerrard's team shows their mental toughness. Mahrez said, "We want to win again." "We want to go when the season starts. That's the drive. We never imagine "this year will be easy" or "we can take it easy."

"No, we go 100% from the start because we want to win. Against Aston Villa, I thought, 'F***ing hell, what are we doing?' Villa wins 2-0 at home. Sometimes you don't feel good in a game, and others helped us win — that's our squad." Raheem Sterling,

Gabriel Jesus

, and Fernandinho have all recently left Manchester City.

With the additions of

Erling Haaland

and Kalvin Phillips, plus the possibility for Jack Grealish to play a bigger role this season, Mahrez is confident Leicester will be in the mix again, especially in Europe.

"The last four [or] five years have been great," he said. "Keep going and break records would be great. The Champions League is...details? We should have made the final last year. I think we'll return this season."
