Man City away end surprises fans during match against Tottenham

Last night, Man City took a giant leap towards winning the Premier League title with a 2-0 victory over Spurs at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. The Blues weren't at their best but managed to get over the line thanks to a second-half double from Erling Haaland.

The atmosphere inside the stadium on the night was peculiar, to say the least with Tottenham fans as flat as they have been all season despite the match representing an opportunity for them to take the race for the top four to the final weekend of the season.

Beforehand, the pre-match build-up had been dominated by speculation that Spurs fans wanted their team to lose to avoid Arsenal winning the league and the atmosphere basically confirmed that those inside the ground didn't want their team to win.

That mean that it was on the 3,000 Man City fans in one corner of the stadium to generate some noise on the night. While they occasionally burst into song throughout the night, their celebrations after Erling Haaland's opener have caused a furore on social media.

Fans go in on ‘plastic' Man City away end

A clip shown live on Sky Sports of the Man City away end after Haaland's opener was strange, to say the least. Granted, only a small section of fans were recorded but the celebrations weren't exactly befitting of a goal that effectively sealed a fourth consecutive Premier League title.

Fans of other clubs were quick to pile on after it made its way to social media. One person said: “I could name at least 15 League One clubs with better limbs/atmosphere than that Away end. It’s a title decider man. Bunch of Plastic fans. That’s why no one cares if they Four Peat.”

A Liverpool fan said: “This is exactly what Trent meant when he said it means more to us. A goal that’s probably won them the league and they celebrate like that? This is how I react when my dominos driver walks up my path.”

Even some City fans weren't impressed. One said: “Honestly pathetic. How are these people getting tickets? Obviously not fans of the club are they? All stood together so it makes me think something is going on at the club and it's some sort of naff allocation. No away tickets should be going to corporate.”
