For the majority of the season, Manchester City and their manager Pep Guardiola have escaped criticism.
The team have obliterated their opposition in the Premier League title race as they have a 16-point lead at the top.
The North-West outfit can secure the title this Saturday if they overcome local rivals Manchester United at the Etihad Stadium.
City fans have rarely had to experience disappointment this season due to the team’s scintillating and dominant displays on the pitch.
However, on Wednesday night they were stunned as they watched the players get overrun by Liverpool in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final tie.
Goals from Mohamed Salah, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Sadio Mane ensured that Liverpool took a 3-0 advantage into the second leg at the Etihad Stadium.
Some fans have been discussing the importance of this weekend’s United game on social media following the midweek disappointment.
BBC host and former England international Gary Lineker could not resist poking fun at Guardiola.
Good heavens. 3-0 to Liverpool. City all over the place. Pep’s getting sacked in the morning.
