Raheem Sterling Misses Open Goal From Five Yards As Manchester City Lose To Lyon In The Champions League

The Blues brilliantly created an opening with Gabriel Jesus squaring to Sterling who missed from five yards.

The England international ballooned over an empty net as he looked on in disbelief.

Moussa Dembele then went down the other end and scored Lyon's third goal of the tie to send his team to the Champions League semi-final.

A second tweeted: "Now he's not even a tap in merchant."

A third added: "Even a little kid could have scored man, seriously."

Maxwel Cornet opened the scoring against City who hit back through Kevin De Bruyne. Second-half substitute Dembele bagged a brace as Lyon won 3-1.

The French club now play Bayern Munich for a place in this season's final.
