Liverpool have condemned ‘vile’ chants from a section of Manchester City supporters during Sunday’s Premier League fixture at Anfield.

The Reds claimed a 1-0 victory thanks to Mohamed Salah’s second-half strike in what was an thoroughly entertaining and fiercely-contested match on Merseyside.

However, there were some dark moments during the match, with City boss Pep Guardiola saying coins were thrown at him by some Liverpool fans shortly after his side had a goal disallowed.

And in a statement Liverpool say that chants relating to football stadium tragedies were heard from the away section during the match.

The club adds that ‘graffiti of a similar nature’ was also found on the concourse of the away section of the ground.

The statement read: “We are deeply disappointed to hear vile chants relating to football stadium tragedies from the away section during today’s game at Anfield.

“The concourse in the away section was also vandalised with graffiti of a similar nature.

“We know the impact such behaviour has on the families, survivors and all those associated with such disasters.

“We are working with the relevant authorities and we will also work with Manchester City in order to do our utmost to ensure these chants are eradicated from football altogether.”

Liverpool, meanwhile, have pledged to ban for life anyone found guilty of throwing coins towards Pep Guardiola.

City manager Guardiola revealed he was a target for missiles hurled from the crowd after the visitors had a goal disallowed during the second half.

Guardiola was not hit by any of the objects but Liverpool promptly opened an investigation into the matter.
