Manchester City star Raheem Sterling rinses Ilkay Gundogan on Instagram

The heaviest pressure, however, is most likely to be on Manchester City’s shoulders after setting extraordinarily high standards in the past two seasons.

But judging by their players’ social media activity, the spirits at the camp seem to be really high and the Citizens are feeling good ahead of the new challenge that lies in front of them.

Raheem Sterling has recently shared an Instagram snap with John Stones from the training grounds and with it, he also threw some banter towards Ilkay Gundogan.

Sterling was seen doing what seems like a special greeting with Stones on the pitch and, by the looks of it, Gundogan just couldn’t figure out what was going on there.

At least that’s the message his rather confused face seemed to convey.

Noticing this, Sterling was quick to banter him for it, asking him “why so mad?” and tagging the player in the process.

Of course, this is just friends having fun, which is definitely something the coach will be happy to see.
