Hull City fans react on Twitter to Chuba Akpom’s performance v Manchester City

Chuba Akpom

Arsenal youngster Akpom is currently on loan at Hull City.

Hull City were on the end of a 4-1 defeat at the hands of Manchester City on Tuesday evening.

Taking on the Premier League side in the League Cup, Hull could not secure their first ever appearance in a League Cup semi-final, although the final score flattered the home side.

It took three late goals for City to truly show their dominance on the game, after Wilfried Bony had given the Premier League leaders a lead after 12 minutes. It the took until the final 10 minutes for Kelechi Iheanacho to net the second, before Kevin De Bruyne scored twice inside the final 10 minutes to take the lead to 4-0.

Andy Robertson scored a late consolation goal in injury time, in what was a deserved goal for the visitors.

Hull lined up in a much-changed team from their loss to Derby County on Friday, with Robertson, Alex Bruce, Ryan Taylor, Sone Aluko and Chuba Akpom all starting.

And it was the Arsenal youngster who took much of the fan’s criticism at the end of the game.

Akpom, who is on a season-long loan from the Gunners, has netted just three goals in 21 games in all competitions this term, and fans took to Twitter after the game to criticise his performance - with his attitude highlighted as one of his real weaknesses.
