Manchester City fans slam Raheem Sterling on Twitter after performance v Liverpool

The former Liverpool man was criticised by Manchester City fans on Saturday evening.

So Raheem Sterling's first reunion with Liverpool after leaving the club for Manchester City over the summer didn't exactly go to plan...

City were humbled by a hard-working, high-pressing Jurgen Klopp side. And Sterling himself endured a day to forget on a personal note. The 20-year-old produced very little indeed against his old side and duly received plenty of stick from Liverpool fans on social media.

But Sterling's own Manchester City supporters were unhappy with the youngster's display. For a winger that cost so much money, the City man can often look very limited as a forward. The phrase 'one-trick pony' springs to mind and has been used by some fans.

Sterling, overall, looked short of anything against Liverpool except running. And all professional footballers can run... Does the Manchester City man really have enough of an end product? Against an injury-ravaged Bournemouth side he did. But can he produce on the big occasion?

Maybe he can - but he certainly didn't against Liverpool during his side's 4-1 defeat on Saturday afternoon. Here's how Manchester City supporters reacted to his display on Twitter:
