Fans were left baffled at BT Sport and their blunder which came during the first half of the Premier League fixture, Man City v Wolves.
The game ended with Pep Guardiola’s side winning 4-1, extending their winning run to 21 games, and went 15 points clear at the top of the Premier League table.
Man City scored three late goals against Wolveswith Leander Dendoncker’s own goal giving the hosts the lead; Wolves equalised through surprise goalscorer Conor Coady with his first touch in City penalty area; though late strikes from Gabriel Jesus and Riyad Mahrez sealed the win at the Etihad.
However, when watching the game, viewers were left confused when late on in the first half, BT Sport decided to start playing the song that resonates with every Leeds fan, ‘Marching on Together’ as the fake crowd noise.
This was picked up by many users on social media, questioning why the broadcaster BT Sport was making the blunder during Man City v Wolves, see what they had to say below…

What the managers said…
Man City boss Pep Guardiola: “We were fantastic. After 1-1 we suffered but we created lots of chances in the end.”
On winning 21 games in a row: “Manchester United. That’s all we care [about now]. The champions are Liverpool, the crown belongs to them. We are in the best position right now to take them out and we are going to try, but they are the champions.
“There are 33 points to play [for]. Tomorrow our opponents will play, we have one or two days off and prepare for Manchester United at home.”
Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo: “First half we were organised but no fight, there was a lot of possession from City. Second half we had more pressing, were higher up the pitch and creating threats in our possession – which we sustained for a spell of the game. The boys were solid and compact.
“The game went by, but we were not able to sustain this and we got punished. We felt that we were on the front foot in the second half but after we draw the reaction was not to sustain but we faced a very good opponent.”
Sky Sports‘ Adam Bate with analysis:
“Manchester City won this game twice. In the first half, their dominance of Wolves was so total that the away team barely registered a touch of the ball in the final third of the pitch let alone the opposition penalty area. And when a set play allowed Wolves back into the match, City cut through them to show how they can devastate teams late on too.
“Riyad Mahrez was magnificent all evening, tormenting Jonny Otto and then Ki-Jana Hoever. Is there a silkier first touch in football than that of the Algerian? His ability to bring that ball down from the sky in his stride was enough to find space in behind the Wolves defence for the opening goal. He ended any hopes of a comeback by scoring the third himself.
“Gabriel Jesus scored the other two – a reward for his unselfish work leading the line for Pep Guardiola. Elsewhere, Joao Cancelo was excellent again, this time at left-back, while Bernardo Silva’s role in raising the tempo of the team’s play in the opposition half cannot be underestimated. The in-form Ilkay Gundogan was only required for eight minutes.
“Twenty-one consecutive wins tells the tale. Those autumn doubts about the method and the mood are long forgotten. Confidence is oozing from the team and the depth is so good that any number of changes to the starting line-up do not appear to affect the fluidity of the football. It has crept up on many during a miserable winter, but this is a great City side.”
