Liverpool charged over referee protest vs. City


Liverpool have been charged by the Football Association (FA) over failing to control their players during Saturday’s 4-1 defeat at Manchester City.

“Liverpool FC has been charged after its players surrounded a match official during the 34th minute of their Premier League game against Manchester City FC,” the FA said in a statement on Thursday.

“It’s alleged that Liverpool FC failed to ensure its players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion and/or do not behave in a way which is improper.”

Liverpool have until April 12 to respond to the charges. They are in eighth in the league table and host leaders Arsenal on Sunday.
