MANCHESTER CITY were accused of being “bitter” towards newly crowned Premier League champions Liverpool and were showed up by Aston Villa’s “proper” guard of honour.

As City, last season’s title winners, were the first to play Jurgen Klopp’s side since being crowned kings they were duty bound to welcome them with a guard of honour.

But their effort was slammed by fans online, who reckon the hosts put little to no effort in congratulating Liverpool.

In the champions’ following game they returned to Anfield and were again met with a guard of honour by relegation battling Villa.

This time Liverpool were significantly better welcomed onto the pitch and fans on Twitter compared the two guard of honours.

One fan tweeted before the City game: “My clap at home was louder.”

Another wrote: “The deadest guard of honour ever.”

On Villa’s version one said: “This is what you call a proper guard of honour.”

Another said: “A guard of honour done right.”


No Premier League team has ever received a guard of honour with as many games left to play as Liverpool, who had seven remaining.

But City capitalised on Liverpool seemingly enjoying a honeymoon period as they were beaten 4-0.

They soon bounced back, however, winning 2-0 against Villa, who suffered anther survival setback.
