Guardiola was arrested for angrily disputing with officials following the refusal to give James Milner a second yellow for a foul.

Liverpool has received a complaint from Manchester City after a fan allegedly abused their staff during the first-half of the draw at Anfield.

Manager Pep Guardiola stated that he wasn't aware of the incident at that time, but was later notified.

After the game, he stated that "They" (the staff) told me, but I didn’t see it." He was pleased with his team's draw.

"I am certain Liverpool FC will take action against this person. They are more than this behavior, I'm sure."

Liverpool is investigating the incident and looking at CCTV footage from the area.

City came back twice from behind in a thrilling Merseyside game, with Kevin de Bruyne claiming a point after Mohamed Salah's brilliant solo goal put the Reds ahead.

However, it was not without controversy on the field. Guardiola furiously protested with officials for what he felt should be a second yellow and dismissal for Liverpool fullback James Milner.

Milner's foul against Bernardo Silva right before Salah's goal was not punished, and Guardiola himself was later arrested for his protests.

City is now third on the table with 14 points. This is a point and one place less than Liverpool, and two points below leaders Chelsea.
