Stoke's season has come off the rails in the last fortnight and after their 4-0 defeat at the hands of Manchester City, Twitter got stuck into Potters defender Ryan Shawcross.
The one-cap England international endured a miserable first half at the Etihad Stadium, with his blatant foul on Kelechi Iheanacho allowing Sergio Aguero to make it 2-0 from the penalty spot and giving the people of Twitter all the ammunition they needed.
Dear me!!! Ryan Shawcross. Just stay with your runner! Ref spot on=pen=game over!

Almost spat my lunch out when I heard "lazy defending isn't something we normally associate with Ryan Shawcross".

I think there are more brain cells in a piece of garden furniture than in Ryan Shawcross.

Nice clothesline from Ryan Shawcross there. And people seriously think he should be playing for England? #rugby

Ryan Shawcross defends how an ogre would defend, big clumsy uncoordinated somebody.

Pretty sure Ryan Shawcross is playing in flip-flops, summer holidays are already underway.

If the first half belonged to Shawcross for all the wrong reasons, the game became the Iheanacho show after the break as his two goals wrapped up a comfortable 4-0 win for City.
Iheanacho is a top, top talent. His composure in front of goal belies his tender age.

Iheanacho is a baller does things the simple but efficient way. Bright future.

Raved about Iheanacho for ages so this performance is no surprise. What a talent. Crazy that we're the same age but he looks 35 years older.

Iheanacho looks a great talent; great ball retention, intelligent with his movement & composed in front of goal.

11 goals for Kelechi Iheanacho this season. Want context? Bony has had 10 since joining City in 2015, Sterling has 11 this season.

Iheanacho is better than Martial & Rashford no question. Name another striker who can score a goal with bony as their striker partner

How many goals would Kelechi Iheanacho have scored this season had #mcfc not wasted 1096 minutes playing Wilfried Bony?

While Manchester City moved back up to third in the Premier League with a morale-boosting win ahead of their Champions League date with Real Madrid, Stoke conceded four goals for the third game in a row as their season fizzles out.
