Liverpool defender Trent Alexander-Arnold was at the centre of the controversy during the Premier League game with champions Manchester City after he handled the ball twice in the penalty box without being penalized by centre referee Michael Oliver.
The England international right-back handled the ball in the penalty box shortly before Liverpool took the lead via the 25-yard stunner from Fabinho.
Manchester City players felt aggrieved because Michael Oliver failed to award the penalty for the handball from Alexander-Arnold.
Liverpool added a second goal through Mohamed Salah with all the aforementioned incidents happening inside the first 15 minutes of the game.
