Leicester City fans mock Liverpool fans during last night’s Premier League clash by waving phones showing The Sun logo.
A couple of Foxes supporters could be seen in the home section at the King Power Stadium let down the majority of the home side’s fan base by showing The Sun newspaper’s logo up to the travelling supporters to stir up trouble.
From all the disappointing things in the game going on at the moment, you have the fans of the ‘family club’ @LCFC brandishing images on ‘the Sun’ logo to us in the away tonight. Disgrace. pic.twitter.com/bytRBFKcbj

The video clip has gone viral on social media, with it being watched over 500,000 times as well as ‘liked’ by thousands of users.
It came as the Reds were singing ‘Liverpool, Liverpool!” on repeat at the top of their lungs with their side winning in empathic fashion in the final game of Boxing Day.
Trent Alexander-Arnold was easily the man of the match of the game when he made two assists and scored one in Liverpool’s 4-0 win over Leicester.
He was on the scoresheet along with Roberto Firmino, who scored twice, and James Milner who put the ball in the bakc of the net from a penalty kick.
Liverpool go impressively 13 points clear at the top of the Premier League table and look already on course to end their 30 year to win the top flight of English football.
Leicester City remain second with 39 points, one more than Manchester City who sit third and well ahead of Chelsea in fourth who have 32 points.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp to BBC Sport: “I am happy about that. I appreciate it because I do not take it for granted and the boys have to do it every three days. We had big chances at the start of the game, did not score with them but stayed in the game and controlled it.
“It is was difficult for Leicester to get into the game, both teams felt the intensity of the season but we controlled it more and maybe Leicester were not as aggressive, maybe because of us and our positioning. We scored a first goal, super, super, cross from Trent Alexander-Arnold and Roberto Firmino can score from that situation.
“We struggled a bit with their build-up in the second half and we won the balls immediately and then scored the second goal, then the boys were flying. It looked really nice.
“1-0 is not even a result, it was a moment and it could have been difficult when they had set-piece but that is OK, I don’t expect a game like this to have a free run because they have so much quality and the season Leicester have had. We were very concentrated and the goals were absolutely nice and an important day for us.”
Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers to Match of the Day: “We played our last two games against two of arguably the best teams in the history of the Premier League.
“We didn’t have enough patience in the first half. We never secured the ball which meant we had to defend for long periods really.
“The players gave everything. It’s a great learning game for us. Credit to Liverpool they played well.
“We just didn’t have long enough periods with the ball. When you don’t against a top team – world champions – it becomes difficult for you.
“We are at the halfway point now. We are 19 games in. It is the bigger picture with these guys. We have come a long way in this period. The players have been brilliant and this is another learning game for them, they see the physicality you need to compete.
“People were trying to put us in a race with Liverpool but we know where we are.”
