The England international poked fun at the centre-back as he made light of the facial expression he pulled while taking a shot against Dinamo Zagreb

Raheem Sterling joked about the facial expression he pulled in Manchester City's win over Dinamo Zagreb, claiming that Phil Jones "would be proud" of the England winger's gurn.

Having already booked their place in the Champions League knockout stages, City strolled to a 4-1 win in Croatia, which ensured they finished top of Group C on 14 points.

Zagreb were eliminated after losing to Pep Guardiola's side, with Atalanta sneaking through on seven points by beating Shakhtar Donetsk 3-0 in Ukraine.

City found themselves a goal down after 10 minutes when Dani Olmo found the net with a sumptuous volley, before Gabriel Jesus took centre stage.

The Brazilian headed an equaliser just after the half-hour mark and doubled his account with a sublime individual effort early in the second period.

Jesus completed his hat-trick in the 54th minute, with Phil Foden rounding off the scoring for City late on after being handed a rare start.
