Man City lodge complaint with Liverpool as staff allegedly spat at during second half at Anfield

Man City lodge complaint with Liverpool as staff allegedly spat at during second half at Anfield

Man City held by Liverpool

The final Premier League fixture before the dreaded international break played out on Sunday evening.

The game would pit Liverpool against Manchester City at Anfield. The Reds headed into the match unbeaten in all competitions this season, but were dominated for large stretches by Pep Guardiola’s side.

Despite this, Sadio Mane opened the scoring for Liverpool on the day:

Phil Foden then equalised for Man City after 69 minutes:

Liverpool probably should have gone down to 10 men late on when James Milner fouled Bernardo Silva for what looked a clear second yellow.

Milner, however, stayed on the pitch, and went on to play a role in the hosts’ second goal of the day – a stunning strike from Mohamed Salah.

But Salah’s effort was soon cancelled out by Kevin De Bruyne, with the final whistle eventually sounding with the score at 2-2.

Man City complain to Liverpool as staff allegedly spat at

Following what was a fairly heated game, a rather unsavoury report has come to light.

As confirmed by various sources post-game, Man City have lodged a complaint with Liverpool after a member of their backroom staff was allegedly spat at during the celebrations for Phil Foden’s equaliser.

It is added that City have footage of the incident on one of their cameras:
