Manchester City have claimed that their team bus was attacked as it made its way out of Anfield on Sunday evening.

Egyptian Mo Salah’s goal was enough to give the Reds a vital 1-0 win during the game but there were incidents off the pitch that overshadowed the day’s action.

Liverpool released a strongly-worded statement condemning chants about the Hillsborough and Heysel tragedies by City supporters in the away end.

City’s coach, Guardiola also said he was subjected to coins being thrown at him from Liverpool supporters in the Main Stand.

Liverpool spokesperson, reacting to Pep’s allegation, said: “We are aware of an incident involving objects being thrown into the technical area at today’s game. This is totally unacceptable behaviour and not the standards of behaviour we expect at Anfield.

“This incident will be fully investigated using CCTV and those found guilty will be punished, including a lifetime ban from Anfield and a possible football banning order.”

According to a latest report from the Manchester Evening News, City’s windscreen was cracked after it was pelted en route back towards the M62 from Anfield Road.

The 2020/2021 Premier League champions are yet to make an official formal compliant, but it is expected soon.
