Premier League forced to delete ‘Wall of Champions’ tweet as fans rage at glaring omission

1 month ago 27

THE Premier League has been forced to delete a tweet after fans spotted a glaring error in the post.

On the eve of the top flight’s return, the Prem has been busy promoting the new season on their social media channels.

Part of that promotion saw them tweet out a list of the winners since the Prem’s inception in 1992/93.

However, eagle-eyed fans were quick to spot a notable omission from the “Wall of champions”.

The tweet, which asked fans who would be champion at the end of the 2023/24 season, left off one of the most memorable victories of recent times.

Such has been Manchester City‘s recent dominance that it could be easy to forget a time when they went three seasons without the title.

But between 2014/15 and 2016/17 that is exactly what happened, with Chelsea picking up two league titles and Leicester City‘s remarkable win in 2015/16 sandwiched in-between.

But looking at the graphic, Leicester’s badge had been inexplicably swapped for a Man City one.

Reacting to the gaffe, one fan said: “Am I going nuts, or are Leicester not there?”

“Did Leicester get removed 💀,” remarked a second.

A third joked: “Have Manchester City paid you to award them an additional title? Leicester City do exist!”

A fourth typed: “Why is Leicester City not in the picture?”

While a fifth added: “They’ve put City in the year Leicester won it 😂😭.”

The first game of the new season sees champions Man City take a trip to Vincent Kompany’s newly-promoted Burnley.
