Delph delights travelling City fans

Manchester City returned to Champions League action on Tuesday night, making the trip to France to take on Lyon in one of the games of the week. The Ligue 1 pulled off one of the shocks of the tournament so far to beat the Citizens on match day 1 at the Etihad, rolling out 2-1 winners. City travelled to the Groupama Stadium knowing that a point would book their passage through to the last 16 of the competition, three would guarantee progression as group winners. It wasn't easy for them again but they managed to get over the line, drawing 2-2 courtesy of a late Sergio Aguero equaliser after 83 minutes.

That means City are through and big things are expected of them in this years competition, with them the favourites to go all the way with several bookmakers. It's a competition that they've never won and they're clearly desperate to get their hands on it if Fabian Delph's celebrations last night are anything to go by after the full-time whistle. The City utility man is a bit of a fans favourites and he backed that up last night in Lyon when City booked their place in the next round of the Champions League.

After the full-time whistle when the home supporters had left the Groupama Stadium, leaving just the travelling City fans in the ground Delph ran over to them and did a Klinsmann to them which went down an absolute treat. And to be fair, it was pretty funny! A lot of footballers subdue their celebrations so to see Delph come out on his own and do that was class!
