Danny Murphy does not believe Kevin de Bruyne should have to give a guard of honour to Liverpool players who 'can't even lace his boots' when Manchester City host the Premier League champions on Thursday.

City's failure to beat Chelsea last week saw Liverpool crowned champions of the Premier League for the first time in their history and they will now be given a guard of honour by the dethroned champions, who happen to host them in their next contest.

The 43 year old, who spent seven years of his playing career at Anfield, has risked the ire of his former club by singling out City star Kevin de Bruyne as so superior to some Liverpool players that giving them a guard of honour is a farce.

'The fact City will be doing it on Thursday will show humility, saying "Well done" to Liverpool and appreciation for their quality,' Murphy told talkSPORT. ' I think it's a load of nonsense!

'Kevin De Bruyne is the best midfielder, probably, in the world, and he's clapping his hands and giving a guard of honour to players who can't even lace his boots!

City boss Pep Guardiola confirmed that his side would welcome Liverpool onto the pitch with the guard of honour at the weekend.
