Manchester City were unlucky to get only a point on Saturday's Premier League match against Everton, a game completely dominated by the Citizens, who somehow failed to win the game thanks to two missed penalties and a phenomenal performance from Toffees goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg.

City players were not too happy after the match, and decided to stay quiet, with only a couple of them taking to Twitter or Instagram. Here's a few of their reactions' on social media:

City defender John Stones, who played a very good game, spoke to the media after the match and complimented his former Everton teammates, especially goalkeeper Stekelenburg and striker Romelu Lukaku, the two Toffee stars on Saturday:

“I think we should have had the three points in the bag but it’s credit to Everton and Stekelenburg - he pulled off some great saves, two penalty saves, which it made it difficult for us.

“As you said I thought we did everything we could, played some great football at times but we got done on a sloppy counter. It’s one of those games and hopefully we can move on from it and take it onto the Champions League on Wednesday.

“I’ve played a lot of games with Rom and his goal tally speaks for itself really, he’s clinical when he gets in the box and he scored a lot of goals so we tried to do our best in stopping that but he got one against us.

“We’ve gone on such a great run, we still got a point, it's the least of what we wanted, I thought we should have had three.

“In the last three games it's two draws and a loss but before that we were on such a great run. For everyone that’s seen the game today, the attacking threat we had, the excitement, I think it’s good for the future and hopefully we can get back to winning ways.”
