The only Premier League teams to advance to the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 are now Manchester City and Arsenal Football Club. When ESPN UK made this announcement on their official Facebook page, football fans all across the world reacted fiercely, with many of them rushing to the comment section to express their feelings.
Remember how Manchester United, who placed worst in their group, were the first English team to be eliminated from the competition? Newcastle United, on the other side, lost to AC Milan 2-1 and was unable to advance from their group.
Both Arsenal Football Club and Manchester City finished top of their UEFA Champions League group after their impressive run of form and they are now the only teams representing England in the competition.
A lot of people were expecting the numbers to be more because the English Premier League is considered as one of the best in the world, but unfortunately, reverse is the case. Below are screenshots of some of the reactions from football fans across the globe.
