Both Liverpool and Man City played out a thrilling game at Anfield. Kevin De Bruyne cancelled out Salah’s sensational goal to make it 2-2 which was the highlight real of the game.
Soon after the game, Manchester City made an official complaint to Liverpool. As supporter allegedly spat at visiting team’s backroom staff member.
According to Sky Sports News, Liverpool have confirmed that they will investigate the matter following Man City’s allegation and will access CCTV footage to identify the potential culprit.
When asked about the incident, Pep Guardiola has urged Liverpool to take action on the matter.
Pep Guardiola said
“I’m pretty sure Liverpool FC will take measures against this person.”
“They (the staff) told me but I didn’t see it,”
“I’m pretty sure Liverpool FC will take measures against this person. I know they are greater than this behavior.”
The spitting incident completely diverted the attention from what has been an exceptional match. Man City completely dominated the first half but Liverpool were lucky not to concede. Liverpool’s engine boiled after the interval at halftime with Sadio Mane putting Liverpool ahead in the 59th minute.
Man City fought back with Foden’s effort in the 68th minute.
While Mohamed Salah’s magnificent solo goal gave the Reds the lead again but De Bruyne’s curling effort saw the match ending as 2-2. However, Fabinho could have pulled out a victory goal but his shot was blocked from Rodri as the ball was travelling to an open goal.
After an enthralling battle with Man City, Whats next in line for Liverpool?
After the International breaks, Liverpool will play four away games in three different competitions.
The Reds will be welcomed at Vicarage Road by Watford in Premier League followed by a Champions League clash with Athletico Madrid.
