Liverpool fans on Twitter took aim at Manchester City and their stadium turnout at the Etihad on Wednesday night.

The Etihad, or The Emptyhad as it is humorously referred to by non-Man City fans, is infamous for not reaching its full capacity regularly.

When Cardiff City arrived in Manchester on Wednesday in a game that could see their hosts return to the top of the table, you would have expected the stadium to be filled to capacity.

Pictures shared to Twitter would suggest otherwise, with a lot of blue seats visible from television footage.

 

It is actually bizarre that there are so many people rooting against Liverpool when the team they would prefer to win the Premier League struggles to fill its own stadium.

All things considered, Liverpool really are the lesser evil when compared to a club like Manchester City.

Winning the Premier League would not only be an extraordinary achievement but it would be made all the more enjoyable given the number of people it would upset.
