Norwich City did the Reds a big favour yesterday by taking some more points off Manchester City, as the absence of Aymeric Laporte proved costly for Pep Guardiola.
The French defender is expected to be out until the New Year, so City will need to find a solution soon, but after yesterday evening’s result, one supporter made a quite ridiculous claim on BBC Radio 5Live.
The caller rang up BBC 606 to suggest sacking Guardiola for the defeat, before going on to claim Jurgen Klopp could replace the Spaniard.
This is not a drill…
A #MCFC has declared that Pep Guardiola should be sacked.

The radio show is infamous for having on some incredible callers and this one is right up there. Where do they find these people?
The title race is far from over despite the five-point gap. With 33 games to go, City have more than enough firepower to go on a winning run. The Reds are in the driving seat but there’s nothing like a knee-jerk reaction!
