Sane equalised for City on the half-hour mark, after Pep Guardiola’s side had conceded a shock opener against their Championship opposition.
And the German international’s strike clearly inspired his teammates, as a brace from Sergio Aguero and goals from Pablo Zabaleta and Kelechi Iheanacho soon followed.
But being the catalyst for an FA Cup comeback sometimes isn’t enough… especially if pictures like this one exist of you on the internet.
We don’t know exactly where Sterling found this picture, but going by the England international’s caption, we can only speculate that Hogwarts must be involved:
City signed Sane from Schalke in the summer, yet the youngster initially struggled to make much of an impact at the Etihad.
However, the 21-year-old has now scored two and grabbed an assist in his last two games – could we be about to witness some more witchcraft and wizardry from Sane in the weeks to come?
