Sterling and Walker mock each other over shocking misses during Man City’s nervy win against Leicester

MANCHESTER CITY duo Raheem Sterling and Kyle Walker trolled each other on social media over their shocking misses in the 1-0 win against Leicester.

Both men had cause to be embarrassed over their attempts as Vincent Kompany spared their blushes with an emphatic 25-yard stunner at the Etihad.

The vital win leapfrogged the Citizens back above Liverpool into top spot in the Premier League and Pep Guardiola's men will retain the title should they beat Brighton away on Sunday.

Sergio Aguero joked after the full-time whistle that he told Kompany not to shoot before his strike nestled in the top right corner off the underside of the bar.

It was an opinion shared by Sterling, who tweeted a pic of his shot, with the caption: "My face screaming "NOOOO VINNY WHY U DO THIS" so hard. What a hit boi !!! Captain Incredible."

Before he added: "And if anyone has updates for the one @kylewalker2 hit in 1st half, please let us know."

Walker was guilty of blazing a long-distance strike high and wide over the bar in the 17th, with fans in the second tier in danger of being hit.

Commenting on his spooned effort, Sterling joked: "Oh mannn this is terrible."

The former Tottenham right-back then posted Sterling's missed header in the 52nd minute as the ex-Liverpool winger failed to direct his attempt on target.

Tweeting his team-mate, he quipped: "Great clearance pal."

But it was Sterling who would have the last laugh, as he replied by saying: "Yours better tho legend says we still looking for that ball #nowheretobefound."

City are bidding to become the first side since Manchester United in 2009 to retain the league championship.

They know anything less than a win will gift the title to the Reds, assuming Jurgen Klopp's team beat Wolves on Sunday.
