The first FA Cup semi-final of the weekend was one that had Riyad Mahrez’s name written all over it.
Man City were already two goals up thanks to the Algerian, and when the chance presented itself for him to score the first FA Cup semi hat-trick since 1958, he took it.
The hat trick goal owed much to Jack Grealish’s wonderful wing play, and the ability to pick out an assist at just the right time.
His cross was pinpoint and all it needed was Mahrez to stroke home.
