Jon Flanagan had Raheem Sterling in his pocket at Anfield last night, which contributed largely to our excellent 3-0 victory over Manchester City.
The £49m winger was poleaxed by the Scouser in the first minute, which set the tone for both of their evenings. Sterling was hauled off after only 45 minutes by Manuel Pellegrini, clearly worried for his attacker’s safety!
To rub salt in Sterling’s wounds, a clip is doing the rounds that shows how gleeful his former captain Jordan Henderson is after Flanagan’s first tackle. The midfielder looks positively over the moon at Sterling being kicked in the air!
Watch the captain’s face!
