Manchester City defeated Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 at Wembley Stadium on Monday night, but fans took to social media to slam one of their players following the game.
All the talk prior to the match was about what condition the pitch would be in following the NFL game that had been hosted a day prior to the clash.
In truth, the game turned out to be a rather poor spectacle, however, Pep Guardiola’s side made the most of it and ensured they were the better of the two sides on the night.
City went ahead within minutes of the kick-off when Riyad Mahrez netted the only goal of the game to take all three points back to the Etihad Stadium.
Tottenham did have an excellent chance to steal a point shortly before the final whistle, however, Erik Lamela fluffed his chance and skied the ball over the crossbar.
Fans were pleased with the result, however, a number of them took to social media to share their criticism of one of their players for his performance in the game.
Benjamin Mendy had a largely poor display and supporters let him know how they felt about it on Twitter following the end of the game.
Some had stated that he was the worst player on the pitch, with some still not convinced about the defensive part to his game.
Here are some of their reactions:
Have to put that performance down to the pitch
Bounce was just awful
Mendy & Walker struggled the most
Fernandinho was immense, until he got the yellow
Fantastic 3 points
7 out of 9 against the top teams
Top of the league
Now 4 games at home
The boys battled & won #CTID #MCFC

Thought Mahrez was really magnificent tonight, Fernandinho vital as always in those sort of matches. Mendy played like a man wearing giant novelty shoes #MCFC

When has Mendy ever been defensively solid for us? He can't defend

Walker and Mendy putting on a bit of a horror show in time for Halloween 😱 but the game management from the teams was top quality tonight. Never really looked under too much pressure! #MCFC

That was a panicky game for me. 🙈
Mendy has a shocker tonight as did Walker.
Players of the night (my opinion)
Mahrez (killer instinct for the goal)
Fernandinho (always puts a top performance in)

Thank God that over with. I thought we was very poor tonight. Mendy and walker were shocking. Other than 1 error Laporte was immense alongside Stones. My MOTM was Ferna pure class be hard to replace him. Anyway we won the game thanks to a great goal by mahrez #mcfc
