Man City & Ander Herrera
On Monday morning reports have come out regarding punishments following the Manchester derby.
One of the big talking points has been Ander Herrera spitting at the Man City crest.
Herrera has since reacted badly to claims of bad behaviour. The Spaniard has claimed he didn’t intentionally go out to insult the Sky Blues.
And it’s now been confirmed that Herrera will not face any punishment from the FA.
Yet, unfortunately for Man City, they will be punished after losing the derby.
City had six players booked against United. That’s incurred an automatic fine of 25,000 pounds.
Nothing going to happen re Herrera spitting or coin throwing at Mourinho from Saturday. However @ManCity will get an automatic £25,000 fine after having six players booked.

No FA action likely against Ander Herrera following allegations of spitting on Man City badge. Player has insisted it was not deliberate, so attempts to prove otherwise likely to prove impossible.

Mohamed Salah ‘fit to start’ for vs Man City
Liverpool fans have received a massive shot in the arm on Monday.
The Times have claimed that Mohamed Salah is ready to return to Liverpool’s starting XI against Man City on Wednesday night. Readers are told:
Manchester United’s second-half display in coming from behind will only have strengthened Klopp’s resolve to attack and he will be boosted by the fact that Mohamed Salah is set to be fit to start.
Liverpool are yet to issue an official statement on Salah’s injury status.
Salah, of course, left the first leg early in the second half against Man City with a groin problem. The Egyptian was also left out the Liverpool squad for the Merseyside derby at Everton last weekend.
