Here are the reactions to his performance, "Raheem is a worse finisher than that lady who restored that Jesus painting. "

"'s been very dangerous, until he's clean on goal. I'd keep him on but tell him to bloody pass it to Kane."

"Sterling is one miss away from being called a n*gger by Daily Mail in tomorrow's headlines"

" reminds me of trying to play football with my son. He’s so enthusiastic, but when i pass him the ball he just picks it up and throws it under a passing truck."

"Sterling proving his gun tattoo is harmless by showing the world he has no idea how to shoot"

"If Raheem shot Tupac, he’d be 47 today."

Dele Alli, Maguire, Pickford hailed

"Jordan Pickford channeling his inner David de Gea. Unreal."

"Pickford and Maguire will grab the headlines but the organisation, leadership, communication, efficiency and composure of both Henderson and Stones has been really impressive."

" is a man of his word"

"jordan pickford could’ve saved the titanic"

"150 - Donald Trump has offered Everton $150 million for Jordan Pickford. Wall."
