There Was A Huge Bust Up Between Liverpool And Leicester Players At Full-Time
A number of Liverpool and Leicester players were involved in a nasty bust-up after the full-time whistle on Saturday afternoon.
It was a controversial ending to the Premier League fixture at Anfield. Liverpool forward Sadio Mane was brought down by Jonny Evans in the area and after consulting VAR, referee Chris Kavanagh gave a penalty kick.
The ever-reliable James Milner converted from 12 yards to secure a 2-1 win for Jurgen Klopp's side but a certain Ayoze Perez was far from happy after the final whistle blew.
He confronted match winner Milner before appearing to argue with full-back Andrew Robertson.
Perez is NOT happy! :rage:
Liverpool extended their Premier League winning run to :one::seven: matches with an eventful 2-1 win over Leicester today, including a last-minute penalty from James Milner! :dart:

Perez was eventually taken away from the scene by teammates Jamie Vardy and Youri Tielemans as the cameras panned to Jurgen Klopp giving one of his classic hugs.
It is not known why the incident occurred but clearly the former Newcastle player was furious with the outcome of the game.
Plenty of theories emerged on social media after the full-time whistle.
Read that it kicked off because Robbo laughed in Perez's face at final whistle. Anyone else see that? Maybe there was a bit of needle between them during the game. If it's true then Andy probably learnt that from Suarez during the Nou Camp game :joy:

And now Perez seems to be offering Robertson a fight. Impression they'll sort it out in the car park. Robertson looks up for it.

I take it Perez lost the plot because Robertson wouldn't give him his jersey?

Liverpool are now eight points clear of second place Manchester City as they continue their unbeaten Premier League run.
Do you think they will finally lift the title this season?
