‘At 2-2’: Jason Cundy shares what he heard Chelsea fans singing just before Man City wrapped up the title

Jason Cundy witnessed Chelsea fans singing in support of Manchester City at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

Speaking on talkSPORT, Cundy revealed that those sporting blue at the weekend were willing Pep Guardiola’s side to pinch the Premier League title ahead of Liverpool.

Most of the country had their eyes fixated on the action happening at the Etihad and Anfield, eager to find out which stadium the trophy would be heading to.

Even those attending their own team’s home games clearly couldn’t concentrate on the action in front of them, as they kept an ear out for the scores in the north.

A draw would also be enough, as long as Liverpool matched the result or lost to Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Jurgen Klopp’s men got off to the worst possible start by conceding inside 120 seconds.

But the script flipped completely when Villa scored before half-time and then doubled their lead with 20 minutes to go.

This score line would crush pretty much any group in the land.

Guardiola’s troop are simply built different from the rest, however.

Substitute Illkay Gundogan slashed the deficit with a quarter of the fixture remaining, to swiftly be followed by Rodri’s precise equaliser.

The Etihad erupted for a third time when Gundogan stabbed the ball into the net to complete the comeback of champion material.

Meanwhile, Liverpool turned their tie around as well by scoring thrice, yet their efforts were ultimately not enough.

News of the drama seeped out across the landscape, as every twist and turn radiated to each arena.

“It was a very different experience for me because I was at the Chelsea game and that was pretty dull if I’m being brutally honest with you,” explained Cundy on his involvement with the title crescendo.

“But of course we wanted to be kept updated what was going on up and down the country.

“So when I found out Liverpool went 1-0 down, I thought ‘they are going to win, that was not in doubt, but it was whether City could win’.

“Then you hear it’s 2-0 to Villa. At 2-2, the Chelsea crowd start singing ‘Come on City’. The Chelsea crowd were singing it at 2-2.

“Then all of sudden, there’s a rumble all around the crowd. The blokes near me told me it was 3-2. So the Chelsea fans were cheering City’s goal.”

Chelsea had nothing to play for when they welcomed Watford to the Bridge, so the supporters could be excused for having their mind elsewhere.

They had some afternoon thanks to City’s victory, Liverpool’s loss and to top it off, the Blues beat Watford 2-1.

Happy days.
