Jamie Carragher reacts to striker’s display in Man City’s 5-3 win over AS Monaco on Twitter

The Liverpool legend delivers his verdict on Twitter to Manchester City's 5-3 win against AS Monaco in the Champions League

Jamie Carragher singled out Radamel Falcao for special praise after the striker’s brilliant double for AS Monaco as Manchester City won 5-3 at the Etihad Stadium on Tuesday night.

The Citizens made the breakthrough in the first half thanks to Raheem Sterling before former Manchester United striker Falcao levelled in the 32nd minute.

Monaco went in 2-1 ahead at half-time thanks to 18-year-old Kylian Mbappe’s close-range finish before what was a thrilling second half in the Champions League.

Sergio Aguero levelled the first leg at 2-2 before Falcao scored a superb solo goal with a sumptuous chip to make it 3-2 to the visitors in Manchester.

However, Pep Guardiola’s side came roaring back thanks to Aguero’s second goal of the night before John Stones and Leroy Sane handed the Citizens a two-goal advantage.

Former Liverpool defender Carragher took to Twitter to reflect on Falcao’s performance and Manchester City’s overall performance.

Manchester City are in second place in the Premier League table and eight points behind current leaders Chelsea.
