John Stones' Reaction After Watching Goal-Line Technology Is Brilliant

HADOUKEN!!!

We haven't got a clue why John Stones is hollering 'hadouken' whilst re-watching his last ditch clearance off the goal line but it's bloody brilliant.

Once the City boys got back into the dressing room, Stones and Ederson gazed at the TV screen which was showing the moment Liverpool nearly, nearly took the lead.

As Goal Line Technology rendered it's verdict, Stones hilariously shouts 'hadouken' in sheer delight.


We didn't know Stones was such a big fan of Street Fighter?!

It proved vital as City opened the scoring before the stroke of half-time after Aguero finished superbly from a tight angle.

Liverpool leveled before Leroy Sane sealed the victory with a tidy goal.

City are now four points behind Liverpool and Pep Guardiola praised his players.

"I am proud of them, but not just today," he said.

"We lost two games in four days but you can't forget what they have done for 16 months. We knew that it was a final today, if we lose it is almost over.

"All credit to these incredible players. That is how we have to play in the Champions League. Both teams tried to search for each other, we were not scared, we had no fear and we had a lot of pressure.

"They are leaders, it is four points but we have reduced the gap. We knew that if we won we would be in contention to fight for the Premier league, if we lose it is over."
