Sunday’s match didn’t go well for Premier League title holders, Manchester City, as they were defeated 1-0 by Liverpool in Anfield, making it their first defeat of the season.
It was indeed a tough game, as both teams tried their best to score, especially Man City as they tried to see that they equalize after Mohamed Salah’s put Liverpool in lead. Phil Foden who managed to score an equalizer for Man City, got his goal ruled out, as the referee claimed that Erling Haaland had fouled Liverpool Midfielder Fabinho.
The Referee’s decision aggravated Pep Guardiola’s annoyance as he engaged in a heated argument with Liverpool fans.
Speaking about his team’s loss, Pep accused Liverpool fans of throwing him coins, which didn’t get to him. He claimed that Liverpool fans wanted to repeat what they did to Man City in 2018 during the champions league finals, where they threw coins at the Man City team bus.
He further blamed the disqualification of Foden’s goal on the fact that they played in Liverpool’s home.
He told BBC Radio 5 Live: “Next time they will do it better. They didn’t get me.”
“They tried [to throw coins] but didn’t get me. They got it on the coach years ago but not this time,” added Guardiola, referencing an incident from 2018 when City’s team bus was hit by projectiles ahead of their Champions League quarter-final first leg at Anfield.
“After we scored a goal, they disallowed it. This is Anfield,” Guardiola told Sky Sports.
Reports have it that Manchester City is planning on lodging a complaint to the premier league over what transpired at Anfield.
This Defeat saw Man City drop some points as they lose first place in the premier league table to Arsenal.
