City team bus split
Manchester City have claimed their team bus was attacked as it left Anfield following their 1-0 defeat to Liverpool.
  • Latest incident from ill-tempered clash
  • Bus smashed before 2018 Champions League match
  • Liverpool beat Premier League champions 1-0

WHAT HAPPENED? The windscreen of the coach was allegedly cracked as it left Merseyside, four years after Liverpool were fined €20,000 for throwing bottles and objects at the team bus as it arrived ahead of the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final back in 2018.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: It's the latest incident reported from a bad-tempered match between the best sides in England. Coins were thrown at Pep Guardiola following a VAR check on a City goal that was ruled out, Liverpool issued a statement about "vile chants" and graffiti in the away end, while Jurgen Klopp was sent off for protesting at the referee and his assistant.


WHAT NEXT? Merseyside Police have confirmed they will conduct an investigation into the events of Sunday and the Football Association are expected to look into the matter too.
