Manchester City have filed a complaint with Liverpool, alleging a fan spat on their backroom staff in the 2-2 draw at Anfield, according to reports.
Liverpool are looking into the request, the BBC and Sky Sports said, after Premier League rivals shared the points after a thrilling second half which saw City come back twice from behind.
“They (my staff) told me but I didn’t see it,” city boss Pep Guardiola said of the alleged incident, according to the BBC.
“I’m pretty sure Liverpool FC will take action against this person. I know they are superior to that behavior.”
Mohamed Salah appeared to have won the game for Liverpool with a cracker in a frenzied Anfield on Sunday after Phil Foden called up Sadio Mane’s opener, but Kevin De Bruyne’s deflected shot saved a point for Guardiola’s men.
The result leaves the Premier League title race in balance, with Liverpool one point behind leaders Chelsea and City in third place, two points off the top alongside a group of other clubs.
Chelsea were the only team in the top six to win this weekend, beating Southampton 3-1.
