Manchester City say team bus was attacked after Liverpool defeat
There were several disappointing incidents for the club amid Sunday’s high-tempo match, which Liverpool won 1-0.
Manchester City have said their team bus was attacked after they left Anfield following their defeat by Liverpool.
An image shows damage to a window – which the club said was caused by an object being thrown at the bus.
Liverpool were fined in 2018 after fans attacked the City bus as it arrived at Anfield for a Champions League game.
Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has also said opposing fans threw coins at him during Sunday’s match but that he wasn’t hit.
Liverpool, meanwhile, condemned “vile chants relating to football stadium tragedies” from the away supporters’ end during the game.
Graffiti was also left in parts of the Anfield Road End, referring to “murderers” and the number of people killed at the Heysel and Hillsborough disasters.
Liverpool flipped the form book on its head by winning 1-0 thanks to a Mo Salah goal, while City had a goal disallowed.
In another sign of the game’s intensity, Reds’ boss Jurgen Klopp was given a red card for yelling at the assistant referee for not giving a foul.
Klopp later apologised for his outburst – and also for the coins aimed at Pep Guardiola.
Liverpool said in a statement they would use CCTV to investigate the “totally unacceptable behaviour” and that those found guilty would face a lifetime ban from Anfield.
