Premier League champions Manchester City have lodged a complaint on centre referee Michael Oliver for his performance during the game against Liverpool at the weekend.

According to the Daily Mirror, Manchester City have lodged a complaint with the Premier League over the performance of Michael Oliver during the Liverpool game at Anfield on Sunday evening.

Manchester City were aggrieved about two penalty calls during the game and that prompted them to lodge the said complaint 24 hours after the game.

The Premier League champions felt they should have had a penalty for the handball against Liverpool right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold before the Reds went to the other end to take the lead through Brazilian international midfielder Fabinho.

The second penalty appeal also happened against the aforementioned Trent Alexander-Arnold in the second half of the Liverpool game.

Fabinho scored the first goal of the game as early as the seventh minute before Mohamed Salah added a second goal six minutes later.

Liverpool added a third goal in the second half through the in-form Sadio Mane who has now scored seven league goals.

Manchester City pulled one back in the last 12 minutes through Bernardo Silva but it turned out to be a mere consolation for the English champions.
