  • It was Liverpool's third win of the league season
  • Mo Salah scored the lone goal of the game

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has claimed that the Anfield crowd threw stones at him during his side's 1-0 loss to Liverpool FC.

Liverpool on Sunday ended Manchester City's 21-match unbeaten streak in the Premier League, thanks to Mohamed Salahs' goal.

In a post-match interview after his side's first loss of the 2022-23 season, Guardiola said stones were thrown at him after City playmaker Phil Foden's goal was disallowed by VAR.

"The crowd tried but they didn't touch me. Maybe next time they will be better," Guardiola told BBC Radio 5 Live.

Reacting to the disallowed goal, Guardiola said "this is Anfield."

"The referee said play on, played on, played on, there were a thousand million fouls like this and this one is because we scored a goal. So they disallowed it because we scored a goal, otherwise, it would not have been disallowed. We lost because we make a mistake but this is Anfield," the Spanish boss added, according to

Meanwhile, City's loss further extended Arsenal's lead in the 2022-23 Premier League. The Gunners now have 27 points after defeating Leeds United 1-0 Sunday and are four points clear at the top of the table.

The latest 1-0 victory over City, which was Liverpool's only third win in this league season, brought the Reds back into the top 10 of the table. Jurgen Klopp and Co. are placed eighth with 13 points.

Liverpool, meanwhile, condemned the "vile" chanting from the away end.

"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 vandalized with graffiti of a similar nature. We know the impact such behavior has on the families, survivors, and all those associated with such disasters," the club said in a statement.

"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," the statement read.
