A match linesman has told Manchester City players to go and thank their away fans after victory at Arsenal.

The Daily Mail says after the match, which City won 2-0 thanks to goals from James Milner and Edin Dzeko, TV footage picked up the official, John Brooks, telling the City duo 'they've paid 62 quid over there, go and see them' as they exchanged handshakes following the final whistle.

City returned 912 unsold tickets priced at £62 each for their Barclays Premier League clash and the fans that did attend made their feelings clear as they held banners before kick off protesting at the prices.
