One man’s Raheem Sterling tweet predicted Liverpool’s victory over Manchester City months ago

Before Manchester City’s game with Liverpool, much of the talk was about Raheem Sterling.

Saturday’s match at the Etihad was the first time Sterling has faced Liverpool after moving to Manchester over the summer.

The result was a surprise to many, but the manner of the 4-1 humbling was an even greater shock.

Back in July, one man (an Arsenal fan) picked out one of Sterling’s tweets, making a bold prediction about what would happen when the two sides met again.

Incredibly, he was completely right.

As a result, the tweet has been clocking up a huge number of retweets since the final whistle.
