Aguero, Kompany & more: Twitter reacts as Man City win, Spurs draw
Sergio Aguero and Vincent Kompany both tweet their thoughts after Manchester City beat West Ham and Spurs draw at Wigan
Tottenham Hotspur’s hopes of securing a top-four finish took a blow after Andre Villas-Boas’s men could only secure a 2-2 draw with Wigan Athletic at the DW Stadium.
Elsewhere, Manchester City were 2-1 winners against West Ham in the early kick-off, while Everton, West Bromwich Albion and Stoke City all picked up three points in their respective matches.
Here is the best of the Twitter reaction from the professionals, past and present, in chronological order to Saturday’s Premier League action.
QPR defender Chris Samba (@cs4christsamba) is relishing his match later, or so he thinks: “Morning people! Hope we get the three points we need!”
Leicester defender Sean St Ledger (@seanstledger12) pays his respects to Marc-Vivien Foe, who died 10 years ago: “We fear no foe!”
Former City midfielder Didi Hamann (@DietmarHamann) enjoys Roberto Mancini’s reaction as Samir Nasri misses a sitter: “Mancini just thought I would have scored there with my eyes shut #Nasri”
But Toure soon scores, and Celtic boss Neil Lennon (@OfficialNeil) was impressed with the strike: “I love watching Yaya Toure play…he has just scored another beauty!”

Former Tottenham chairman Lord Sugar (@Lord_Sugar) can’t understand why Spurs struggle against weaker sides: “When Spurs play relegation material like Wigan we don’t seem to perform. Where as all the others seems to beat them, we tend to let them win!”
QPR’s Samba has realised his mistake @cs4christsamba: “I woke up so excited to play I forgot it was tomorrow, sorry my mistake!”
City striker Sergio Aguero (@aguerosergiokun) praises his team-mates for helping create his goal: “We handled the ball well and deserved the victory. The goal? That was all Yaya, @21LVA, and @SamirNasri19 – I just nudged it in.”

West Brom goalkeeper Ben Foster (@BenFoster) is thrilled with a 3-0 win at the Saints: “Get in there great day,, so many away fans, frickin’ awesome support, and Hull lost too, come on you Hornets! Safe journeys back everyone!”
