Manchester City fans have uncovered an old tweet from Port Vale striker Tom Pope when he claimed he'd score 40 goals a season playing against John Stones every week.

But while Pope and Port Vale fans were enjoying the draw, City fans had uncovered a six month old Tweet from the lower league journeyman in which he claimed he would score plenty of goals against 'soft' and 'weak' defender Stones following his mistakes for England in the Nations League defeat to Netherlands.

City host League Two side Vale in the third round of the FA Cup as they start their defence of the trophy they won in May to complete a historic domestic treble.

Clearly delighted with the chance to face City, Pope took to Twitter after the draw, posting: "You're welcome" and "I bet the bookies are laughing now!

Veteran striker Pope scored all three goals in an eight-minute spell in the second half.

I know I’m a league 2 player, I know he plays for England, I know he’s on £150k a week, I know he’s a million times better player than me but I’d love to play against John Stones every week!

Pope, 34, is notorious for interacting with fans on social media, and updated his tweet after the cup draw to back-track on his previous comments on Stones.
