Noel Gallagher was spotted ringside at the AO Arena in Manchester on Saturday as Amir Khan and Kell Brook squared off in the boxing ring. The Oasis legend would have wanted to forget Manchester City’s 3-2 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur earlier in the evening, but Derek Chisora made sure to provide a cheeky reminder.
Man City hosted Tottenham at the Etihad Stadium after Liverpool closed the gap at the Premier League summit to six points with a 3-1 win over Norwich City.
But Pep Guardiola was left ruing missing out on Harry Kane’s signature last summer, as the England captain produced a sensational display to stun the league leaders.
Dejan Kulusevski’s early opener and Kane’s brace, including a 95th-minute winner, ensured Tottenham completed the double over Man City and blew the title race wide open in the process.
Liverpool are now in touching distance of the Citizens and could trail by just three points after playing their game in hand against Leeds United in midweek, with a trip to the Etihad still to come.
Gallagher is a massive Man City supporter, but he also loves boxing, travelling the world watching bouts and previously carrying Ricky Hatton’s belts out ahead of a fight.
He would’ve hoped to take his mind off his club’s dismal result across town as he prepared to watch the widely-acclaimed clash between Khan and Brook.
The 54-year-old expressed his excitement to talkSPORT, but during the ringside interview, Chisora interrupted, shouting, ‘Tottenham, Tottenham, Tottenham’ at him.
Gallagher smirked at Del Boy’s actions, labelling him a friend after responding: “Of course I’m upset, we’ll talk about this later.”
Chisora is a Manchester United fan, so it’s no surprise he took great pleasure in seeing City collapse against the north London side.
However, the result does the Red Devils little favours in their pursuit of a top-four finish in the Premier League this season.
After losing their previous three league outings, Tottenham’s surprise win moves them four points behind United in fourth with two games in hand.
And while Ralf Rangnick’s men are currently sat where they need to be, other contenders Arsenal and Wolves also have two games in hand.
United will hope to build on their hard-fought 2-0 win over Brighton & Hove Albion at Old Trafford earlier this week against Leeds on Sunday.
They are set to play at Elland Road in front of fans in the Premier League for the first time since 2003, so a hostile atmosphere awaits.
Regardless of the magnitude of the fixture, three points are crucial after Arsenal, Chelsea, and Tottenham were all victorious on Saturday.
