PREMIER League clubs have been rapped for poor food hygiene.
Champs Man City kept dirty kitchens and did not cook clams properly.
Its chefs were also ticked off for mixing breads that can cause allergic reactions.
Rivals Man Utd stored chicken liver pate wrongly — with bosses told to clean up their act within eight weeks or face prosecution.
And Arsenal catering chiefs were slammed for using sticky paper to catch kitchen mice. Even chef Delia Smith’s Norwich City were ordered to clean better and more often.
The Sun on Sunday looked at food safety reports by councils covering the top clubs.
Liverpool, Leicester, West Ham, Watford, Southampton, and Chelsea got top marks. But Wolves had out-of-date French cheese in fridges.
Burnley was warned for how it kept houmous. At Tottenham there was a lack of food prep space and too few cloths.
Sheffield United had out-of-date food. Inspectors found cracked tiles in Everton’s kitchen.
Crystal Palace had to replace old chopping boards and fix faulty hot taps.
Newcastle United had to mend a walk-in fridge floor. And Brighton were told to address flaky paint.
