Liverpool cruised to the league title last season. The Reds swept aside all before them, storming to an 18 point gap come the end of the season. Many have predicted this campaign to be a closer run affair, whilst Kopites have quietly convinced themselves that it’ll just be more of the same. This weekend may have proven the Reds’ fan base right; Twitter has reacted to Manchester City being humiliated by Leicester City.

Manchester City v Leicester City

Oh what a Sunday to be a Kopite.

Manchester City were thoroughly humiliated by Leicester City on Sunday. The Citizens were crushed 5-2 at home by Brendan Rodgers’ side.

The Foxes tore their hosts apart in dramatic fashion, cutting through the home defence at will at times.

Jamie Vardy bagged a nonchalant hat-trick with a pen to start and finish his scoring, James Maddison curled a beauty into the top right corner and Youri Tielemans netted a pen of his own.

Same old same old

We need to accept now that Manchester City may be very good on the ball but they just do not have the backbone for a title race anymore.

They are being found out time and again, their defensive frailties too often exposed.

The Citizens are expected to complete a deal for Ruben Dias in the coming days but that may not even be enough to save them, he has a reputation for being rash at times.

Twitter reacts to humiliation

One fan declared that City have been found out once more.

Another was surprised that they’d bottle it this early.

Brendan Rodgers is working double time to make up for past errors.

Liverpool will easily repeat.

The stats behind the defeat are incredible.

The question remains: who can stop the mighty Reds?
