Trent Alexander-Arnold 'facing possible disciplinary action' over comments after Man City draw
| Last updated
Liverpool star Trent Alexander-Arnold could face FA disciplinary action for his comments after his side's 1-1 draw with Manchester City, a report has claimed.
The Reds defender equalised in the second half with a low driven shot from 20 yards past Ederson, and was awarded the player of the match award by Sky Sports.
Alexander-Arnold celebrated his goal by 'shushing' the City supporters. When asked why he did it after the match, he simply said because it was 'funny'.
But as per The Sun, the Liverpool defender's admission that he performed the celebration in front of City fans on purpose could land him in trouble with the FA.
The laws of the game state that any player must be shown a yellow card if they are found to have been 'gesturing or acting in a provocative, derisory or inflammatory way' towards members of the crowd.
However, referee Chris Kavanagh did not book the Liverpool defender for his celebration, and it is unclear whether he saw it happen.
The Sun add, however, that Alexander-Arnold would likely be warned about his future conduct if the FA were to take any action, and there were no particular appeals for sanction after the incident happened live.
On the game itself, the 25-year-old said in his post-match interview with Sky Sports: "There's been many times we've played a lot better against City and lost the game. So to come here and get the point is a good result for us, if I'm honest.
"It's something we needed as a team. It instills that belief that, even when we don't play well against the champions - they just won a treble last year and they're top of the league - if you can't play well and still get a point against them, we've done something right."
