Riyad Mahrez roasts himself on Twitter after painful miss vs. Aston Villa

Rodri was named Man of the Match for his dominate midfield display, including one headed goal, in Manchester City's 3-1 beatdown of Aston Villa on Sunday, but winger Riyad Mahrez was certainly a close second. The Algerian provided for Rodri from a corner kick, and then he scored City's third from the penalty spot.

Mahrez probably would've won the game's individual honor if he would've finished a second opportunity in the 84th minute. Instead, with just Emiliano Martínez to beat, Mahrez spooned an effort wildly over from eight yards out.

Mahrez clearly prefers 25-yard screamers over tap-ins, and you're allowed a little self-deprecation after taking all three points because of your masterclass. So Mahrez took agency over his own submission for the miss of the season on Twitter.   

Next up for Man City is the big one: a top-of-the-table clash with Arsenal on Wednesday night at the Emirates.
