Hotspur fan is being criticized for cheering for Manchester City, not Tottenham, in a match against Manchester City.
Manchester City and Tottenham played the 7th round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-23 season held at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester, England on the 20th (Korean time). Man City managed to win 3 points by beating Tottenham 4-2, and with this, Man City is second with 42 points (13 wins, 3 draws, 3 losses), and Tottenham has 33 points (10 wins, 3 draws, 7 losses) placed in the 5th position.
The first half was dominated by Tottenham. Following Dejan Kulusevski’s opening goal at the end of the first half, Emerson Royal’s header cut the net in extra time, widening the gap to two points. But in the second half, it was the complete opposite. Following Julian Alvarez’s comeback goal, Erling Haaland scored an equalizer, and Riyad Mahrez scored multiple goals, succeeding in a turnaround.
Man City got the valuable 3 points. Recently, while competing for the EPL lead with Arsenal, the victory point was narrowed to 5 points. Although Arsenal still have a game to play against Manchester United, which could open them up to 8 points again, they created an opportunity to put pressure on Arsenal.
On the other hand, Tottenham is hopeless. In the last match against Arsenal in the north London rival derby, they lost 0-2, so they fell into a two-game losing streak. At the end of the season, winning in a big match is essential to enter the top 4 of the European Football Federation (UFEA) Champions League (UCL). However, Tottenham are 5 points below 4th place Newcastle United with one more game played due to poor performances.
There were even fans who were cheering for Manchester City in this match against Man City. A Tottenham fan introduced by the British ‘Daily Star’ could not hide the excitement of joy after Man City reversed at half time. “I’m a Tottenham fan. We can’t let Arsenal win the league,” he said. Not Tottenham, who had already widened the gap, but cheered Man City to prevent Arsenal from winning. It seemed that he had already given up on his achievements this season.
In the end, the host, Darren Ambrose, said with a puzzled expression, “You are a disgrace to the football world.” 스포츠토토
