Manchester City fans react to Yaya Toure, David Silva's performances against Leicester

Yaya Touré interview

Manchester City were hammered 3-1 at home by Leicester City today.

Manchester City's title hopes took a huge blow earlier today, as they were beaten 3-1 by Leicester City at the Etihad Stadium.

First travelled to take on second this afternoon, and it was the Foxes who came out on top with a stunning performance to shock City.

Two goals from Robert Huth either side of a superb strike from Riyad Mahrez put Leicester 3-0 up, before Sergio Aguero pulled back a late consolation for City.

Many will believe that the announcement of Pep Guardiola's move to become City manager at the end of the season was the reason for City's no-show, but Manuel Pellegrini saw too many of his key players struggle - including Yaya Toure and David Silva.

Both players have been synonymous with City's rise to challenging for the title, and have been two of the Premier League's best players ever since arriving in the summer of 2010 from Barcelona and Valencia respectively.

Now though, they're both in their 30's, and the wear and tear is starting to show on two players who looked lethargic against Leicester.

Fans took to Twitter to state that, sadly, Silva and Toure are ultimately coming to the end of their time at the Etihad Stadium, and believe City-bound Guardiola could shift both players out of the club in the summer.

Fans were cautious to criticise two players who have meant so much to the club over the years, but there was a sense that today's performance showed they can't be relied upon regularly anymore - and supporters were certainly sad about that prospect, whilst questioning just how the duo have regressed so much.

Here are some of the reactions from City fans on Twitter after Silva and Toure's performances against Leicester...
