FA investigate ‘incident’ between Arsenal and Liverpool players during Premier League game

The Football Association will review details of an incident towards the end of Arsenal’s 3-2 win over Liverpool at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday night.

Bukayo Saka scored a late penalty to secure victory for the Gunners who returned to the top of the Premier League over Manchester City.

Liverpool had come twice from behind to equalize before Arsenal were awarded a penalty 15 minutes from time after Thiago Alcantara’s challenge against Gabriel Jesus that included minimal contact but was confirmed by VAR.

There was a flash point as tempers boiled over after the decision and players from both sides were involved, notably Jordan Henderson, Granit Xhaka and Gabriel.

Referee Michael Oliver spoke to rival managers Mikel Arteta and Jurgen Klopp after the incident.

Klopp said in his post-match TV interviews he was “not allowed” to reveal more details, while Arteta told a press conference afterwards: “It was an incident that happened. Whatever happens in this square, stays in this square.”

The FA will speak to Oliver and his officiating team before deciding whether further steps should be taken.

“We are aware of an incident that took place during the match between Arsenal and Liverpool. We are in dialogue with match officials and will review the details of the incident,” an FA spokesman said.
