Manchester City fans react to Raheem Sterling's display against Sevilla on Twitter

Manchester City Etihad

Raheem Sterling played a huge role in Manchester City's 3-1 win in Spain.

Raheem Sterling was in pretty impressive form for Manchester City on Tuesday night as he played a starring role in their 3-1 win over Sevilla in the Champions League.

The win means they move to the top of their group and have qualified for the last 16 with two matches to spare.

Sterling impressed so much that he was applauded off by sections of the home crowd, having scored the opening goal and played a significant part in the second as his pace tormented the La Liga side's defence. 

Some may have questioned the money spent after he completed his £49 million move from Liverpool in the summer, as covered by the BBC, but judging on this performance, it seems to be yet more evidence that he has fit into life at the club very well, and in terms of the way he has fit into Manuel Pellegrini's side, it looks as if it is money well spent. 

Here is a selection of what fans had to say on Twitter, those who were also very impressed by what their 20-year-old star had to offer:
