Marseille players did not take the knee before their Champions League encounter with Manchester City on Tuesday – but instead stood around the centre circle and watched while Raheem Sterling and his team-mates did.

PSG and Manchester United avoided such scenes last week because both sets of players decided against the pre-match ritual at the Parc des Princes by instead getting the game underway as normal.

However, while City remained intent on showing their support for the fight against racism, Andre Villas-Boas's men were seen stood huddled together in a line while the Premier League side took the knee.

Reports in France are suggesting that the Ligue 1 players opted for a one minute's silence instead to pay their respects to Samuel Paty – a French teacher who was murdered in a terrorist attack last week.

Despite this, fans online questioned why the Marseille players didn't take the knee while some claimed the hosts should be 'ashamed' and one Twitter user called the scene 'absolutely disgraceful'.

It was a training exercise Sheffield United will give City more of a game on Saturday morning, do not doubt it.

The win puts City top of Group C after just two games and now Guardiola's side are already looking strong favourites to claim a place in the knockout stages.

City outclassed their hosts, whose cautious approach and deployment of a five-man defence failed to prevent the visitors taking charge from the outset.

Guardiola said after the game: 'It is a good result for us, especially for the performance. We didn't concede much and we created enough chances to win.

'Playing away in the Champions League is always tough. We have many examples last week and this week. They are doing really well, Marseille, in Ligue 1.

'It was really good, especially the way we played, defensively and offensively, attention to all the details. When a team plays in that way, 3-5-2, so defensive, you can lose your patience and you become impatient to attack, and after that they punish you with the counter-attacks and so on.

Yep, Sarah Jessica Parker Is Working In A Shoe Shop? .
We know it sounds strange, but it's totally true.Earlier this year, the woman who made Carrie Bradshaw one of TV’s greatest – and most divisive – characters was regularly spotted at SJP, her flagship boutique on Manhattan’s 54th Street. Photographs showed her visiting the site, holding boxes, speaking to staff and customers. It seemed like it could be a gimmick, a publicity stunt. But it was no such thing.
