Have a look at the best Man City jokes made in reaction to their 5-1 FA Cup 5th round defeat at Chelsea.
Manuel Pellegrini selected a young starting XI with one eye on Wednesday’s Champions League fixture at Dynamo Kiev, handing full debuts to no less than five players.
One of them, David Faupala, scored a first-half equaliser before Chelsea well and truly seized control after the break, running out 5-1 winners at Stamford Bridge for the second consecutive weekend having seen off Newcastle by the same score last Saturday.
Nevertheless, after three consecutive defeats following the announcement that Pep Guardiola will replace Manuel Pellegrini at the end of the season, there were plenty of Man City jokes and memes doing the rounds on social media:
