Man City went four points clear of Leicester last night with a win over West Ham, but the lack of home fans was the biggest talking point
City fans aren’t known for being the most passionate fans in the country, with many clubs joking they’ve only been around since they were taken over in 2008. However, City fans tend to disagree claiming they’ve loved the club since the Maine Road days and before…
Last nights attendance though didn’t do them any favours. This was a re-arranged Premier League game as they were meant to play on the 9th February but Storm Ciara called it off.
Given that it’s not been a week since they were told they were being banned from the Champions League for two seasons, this could have been the reason. But given that they could even end up in League Two, you would have thought the fans would want to be there for their remaining Premier League games.
Liverpool and Man United fans revelled in the fact it was so empty. City will be hoping for their fans to fill the ground when Real Madrid visit for the second leg of the Champions League tie.
The title is as good as gone now with Liverpool being 22 points clear of them. City will be concentrating on the Champions League now. They are the favourites to win the competition at 4/1. Pep was brought in to win this competition and if the ban stands, this could be his last chance to do so. He has won it twice before with Barcelona and at 4/1 the odds will only decrease as the competition goes on.
