Fans Think Jake Paul Has 'Never Watched Game Of Football In His Life' After Liverpool vs Man City Prediction
YouTuber-turned-boxer Jake Paul branded Manchester City's fanbase as "amazing" in a now-deleted prediction post on social media.
The 25-year-old American, who has admitted in the past that he doesn't follow 'soccer' at all, is apparently looking forward to Sunday afternoon's crunch clash at the Etihad.
Pep Guardiola's side will try and extend their lead at the top of the Premier League to four points against Liverpool in what could turn out to be a crucial game in this season's Premier League title race.

Millions of people are talking about the game online and in a surprise move, Paul decided to join the conversation.
He originally predicted that in-form Liverpool would pick up all three points against Pep Guardiola's side but after the post received hundreds of comments in a very short space of time, the YouTube personality decided to get rid.
Paul wrote: "Man City Vs Liverpool is a toss up. City has their amazing fans...but Liverpool on fire at the moment. I'm putting my bet on The Reds and @mosalah."
Minutes after deleting the Twitter post, Paul went back on his claim that City fans were "amazing" by simply making the observation that the Citizens had "home field."
The prediction that Liverpool would win the fixture did, however, remain the same.
As you can imagine, Paul's original post brought plenty of comments from fans on social media.
One Twitter user wrote: "I never thought the day would come where Jake Paul tweets about football," while another said: "Jake Paul tweeting about Man City vs Liverpool is the most random thing I've ever seen."
A third commented: "As if Jake Paul originally wrote that City have their amazing fans, deleted the tweet and then just wrote they have the home field lmao."
Last year, Paul opened up about his unlikely friendship with Real Madrid forward Vinicius Junior, saying they both support each other's endeavours.
He told talkSPORT: "I don't follow [football] at all. I mostly follow the players, but that's about it.
"Vinicius Jr, that's my guy. We both support each other. He DMs me whenever I knock someone out. He's been killing it."
