Man City vs Tottenham: Manchester City allegedly tested a fake crowd sound ahead of their Champions League clash against Spurs.
The game between Manchester City and Tottenham will be remembered for years to come, as a dramatic finish secured a semifinal berth for Pochettino’s side.
5 goals were scored in the opening 21 minutes of the game, before Manchester City came back into the game late in the second half. However, the drama had just begun as Fernando Llorente gave Spurs another lifeline.
Raheem Sterling scored an injury-time goal, which could’ve been the winner but was ruled out for offside, as Spurs entered the semifinal. Pochettino’s men will take on Ajax in the semifinal.
As Manchester City suffered heartbreak in the game, as rather embarrassing footage has emerged where the club is allegedly seen testing a fake crowd sound.
Man City test fake crowd sound?
The atmosphere at Manchester City has often been a cause of concern for the club. The fan support during Manchester City’s FA Cup semifinal against Brighton was criticised by fans and pundits alike.
And maybe, to save the club from further embarrassment, Manchester City may have decided to take this extreme step.
A video has emerged where the club has been allegedly testing a fake crowd sound ahead of the Champions League clash against Tottenham.

Manchester City are currently at second position in the league, but have a game in hand over the league leaders, Liverpool.
With Jurgen Klopp’s side in a good run of form, City cannot afford to drop points. However, they face a couple of difficult fixtures in the league. While Pep Guardiola’s men take on Tottenham again on Saturday, the Manchester Derby takes place in the mid-week next week.
