Manchester City fans ran out of patience with defender John Stones after his side’s 2-1 defeat to Manchester United at the Etihad on Saturday.
The Citizens’ defending was exposed as the Red Devils’ Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial scored the goals that handed the bragging rights to the red side of Manchester.
Nicholas Otamendi scored late on to set up a thrilling finale but the hosts could not find a reply and slipped further behind their Premier League title rivals Liverpool.
City fans were unhappy with their team’s performance but were particularly displeased with one player in particular.
John Stones played for just under an hour before he went off injured in the second half, but was at the forefront of the Ethiad faithful’s frustrations.
Supporters were livid with the Englishman’s showing and made their feelings clear about it on social media.
Here you will find some of the angriest comments from Manchester City fans:
We have no defence, John stones needs to go ASAP what a waste of space

John Stones should be in the market while we get two defenders. Fenandinho should play in the midfield.

John stones is a complete liability. How he’s still getting a game over Otamendi is beyond me, that’s how bad he is

Wan Bissaka put in an absolute masterclass at right-back for United. We couldn’t get past him at all.. top class…
Counter attacks prove again our Achilles heel.
We were right; START OTAMENDI.
John Stones cannot defend.
I miss the days of Clichy at LB.
The title’s gone.
