Liverpool fans have reacted to Raheem Sterling's performance for Manchester City on Saturday after they beat Everton 3-1 at Goodison Park on Saturday evening. 

Pep Guardiola's side went into that match eight points behind their rivals, but they restored that back to five when Gabriel Jesus, Riyad Mahrez and Sterling all netted against Marco Silva's side. 

 

Liverpool supporters on twitter provided a mixed reaction to Sterling's performance on Merseyside, as he continued his fine start to the season. 

Sterling did miss a number of chances during the game, but he made up for it late on when the ball crossed the line after he hit the underside of the crossbar from close range.

At one point, it looked like Everton were going to secure a point, or even more, against the Premier League champions, but Mahrez's brilliant free-kick after 71 minutes ensured the points were heading back to Manchester.

Sterling, who has started the season in a very strong fashion, saw his performance at Goodison Park scrutinised by some fans from his former club.

The England international, who signed for City from Liverpool for £49 million [BBC Sport] in 2015, will be hoping to guide his team to yet another league title.

But the current leaders, who have won every single game so far, will have something else to say about that.
