Former Manchester Untied captain Gary Neville has called out Manchester City supporters who invaded the pitch after winning the Premier League title against West Ham United.

The Blues created history on Sunday by becoming the first English club to win four consecutive top-tier titles. Phil Foden got City off to the best possible start on two minutes as his thunderous strike flew past Alphonse Areola.

Moments later, Foden made it two as he turned home Jeremy Doku's cross. Mohammed Kudus added extra nerves when he scored an acrobatic effort just before the break.

However, Rodri's strike through a crowd just before the hour mark secured the victory for the hosts. As the game entered stoppage time, fans began to brace themselves to invade the pitch.

Some supporters could be seen encroaching on the pitch before the full-time whistle which led Neville to slam those taking part. "What are they doing? Honestly," Neville said.

"They are even getting booed by their own fans. To be fair Bernardo Silva is going over to them, he is furious. He's absolutely right.

"It's not your first title. All the City fans are over toward them saying 'get back in the stands.'

"They are not kids either, by the way, 40-odd-year-old blokes." When the referee eventually blew for full-time, fans spilt onto the pitch to celebrate the title win.

Some supporters tried to celebrate with the players but the City squad ran quickly for the tunnel to avoid being stuck in the celebrations ahead of the trophy lift.
