Man City make complaint after Liverpool fan 'spat at backroom staff'

Manchester City have made an official complaint after a Liverpool fan allegedly spat at their backroom staff during the 2-2 draw at Anfield.

Defending champions Man City twice came from behind to secure a draw in a Premier League thriller between two title rivals on Sunday.

Shortly after the match, it emerged Man City’s backroom staff had made a complaint after they were allegedly spat at by a Liverpool fan during the second half.

Manchester City believe the incident, which is said to have occurred after Sadio Mane’s opening goal, was caught on camera and an investigation is now underway.

Pep Guardiola said: ‘I don’t know exactly, I didn’t see the images. If what happened that the people told me, Liverpool will take measures with this person.

‘Liverpool is much greater than this behaviour, so nothing will change my admiration for this club.

‘The same with what happened a few years ago when they destroyed our bus when we came here.

‘We said it was certain people, not Liverpool FC. So it’s always a pleasure to come here.’

Manchester City dominated the first-half against Liverpool but it was the hosts who took the lead on 59 minutes as Mohamed Salah found Sadio Mane and the Senegalese forward fired past Ederson.

Guardiola’s side levelled through the impressive Phil Foden, but Salah’s brilliant solo goal saw Liverpool once again go ahead.

Man City came again, however, and secured a point through Kevin de Bruyne’s deflected shot from Foden’s cross.

On his team’s performance, Guardiola added: ‘If you ask me about the points of course I am happy if you ask me about the performance I am more than happy.

‘The way we have played the last three games has been magnificent. We have played a lot of players and they have all played with personality and personality and unfortunately we could not win.

‘We overcame two results, 1-0 down and 2-1 down and incredible personality from the team.’

The 1-1 draw means Liverpool and Manchester City stay second and third respectively in the Premier League, with European champions Chelsea top.
