Pep Guardiola sarcastically thanked the match officials following Manchester City’s controversial Premier League defeat against Liverpool.

The City manager was incensed after he saw his side denied two penalties during another epic meeting between the two title chasing sides at Anfield.

Fabinho fired the home side into an early lead, less than 30 seconds after City thought they should have been awarded a spot kick after the ball had ricocheted onto the hand of Trent Alexander-Arnold.

Mohamed Salah doubled the lead with a brilliant header following a pinpoint cross from Andy Robertson and Sadio Mane ensured three points for Liverpool, nodding home at the far post after another brilliant delivery from out wide, this time from Jordan Henderson.

Bernardo Silva set up a tense finish, denying Liverpool their first clean sheet at home this season, with a crisp low shot from just inside the penalty area.

Guardiola felt his side were denied another penalty soon after when the ball again struck Alexander-Arnold on the hand following a Raheem Sterling cross.

VAR, however, ruled the Liverpool full-back was not at fault sparking a hysterical reaction from the City manage on the sidelines.

After the final whistle blew, Guardiola shook the hand of every player on the pitch before moving towards the match officials and sarcastically thanked them for their performance.
