Guardiola claims Liverpool fans threw coins at him ‘but they didn’t touch me’

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has claimed that Liverpool fans threw coins at him during their 1-0 defeat at Anfield.

The alleged incident occurred in the aftermath of Phil Foden's disallowed goal in the 53rd minute. City thought they had taken a priceless lead when Foden poked home from close range, only for VAR to rule it out for a foul by Erling Haaland in the build-up.

City claim that in the aftermath of the disallowed goal, which sparked wild celebrations among the home crowd, Guardiola was targeted by projectiles from Liverpool supporters.

According to the Daily Telegraph, City are set to complain to the Premier League about the incident. The allegation is likely to be reported to referee Anthony Taylor, which will bring about a Football Association probe into the claim.

Guardiola addressed what allegedly happened on BBC Radio 5 Live after the game. He said: "Next time they will do it better. They didn't get me. They tried but didn't get me. They got it on the coach years ago but not this time."

The Spaniard's comments are believed to refer to the Premier League clash between the two teams in 2018, when bottles were thrown at Manchester City's team bus as it entered Anfield.

There was further controversy involving the managers later on in the game when Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp was sent off for berating the fourth official.

Klopp wasn't happy that Mohamed Salah did not receive a foul after being brought down by Bernardo Silva. The German boss overstepped the mark and was sent down the tunnel by Taylor.

Despite his protestations, Klopp would have been pleased with the final result as the Reds secured a much-needed three points.

Salah scored the only goal of the game with 15 minutes left, bringing down Alisson's magnificent ball over the top before coolly slotting it past Ederson in the City goal.

Victory moved the Reds up to eighth in the table while City remain second, four points adrift of league leaders Arsenal.
