Mixed reaction on Twitter to Raheem Sterling’s debut for Manchester City

Manchester City’s game against West Brom on Monday night marked a debut for summer signing Raheem Sterling and it was certainly a hot topic on social media.

The former Liverpool winger completed his transfer to last season’s Barclays Premier League runners-up earlier in the summer in a fee that could rise to as much as £49million, which has made him the most expensive English footballer in history.

With such a huge price-tag, much is expected of the England international to deliver every time he steps on the pitch and against the Baggies he couldn’t quite mark the occasion with a goal as he was denied in the first-half from close range, however he did show signs that he will be a useful addition to what is already a star-studded squad at the Etihad Stadium.
