Merseyside police are investigating alleged criminal damage to Man City's bus

Merseyside Police have confirmed they are investigating reports of a Manchester City bus being damaged following Sunday's fiery showdown with Liverpool.

The game ended 1-0 at Anfield's in favour  of Jurgen Klopp's side, but as Manchester City fans chanted viciousness against the Hillsborough and Hessel disasters and graffiti in the away end, off-pitch headlines were spoiled.

A number of accusations from both rival clubs have emerged since the game. City boss Pep Guardiola, already furious at Klopp's alleged pre-match comments about Manchester City's spending which was branded as "xenophobic", claimed Liverpool fans targeted the him with coins.

Now an investigation has been launched into the Manchester City manager comment that he was being targeted when his team were travelling back to Manchester from fro Anfield.

A spokesperson for the Merseyside police said: "We have now received a report of an alleged criminal damage of the Manchester City team coach following the Liverpool and Manchester City game on Sunday 16 October.

"The incident of alleged damage to the windscreen was reported to us yesterday, Tuesday 18 October, and further enquiries are ongoing.

"Anyone with information, video, CCTV or dashcam footage is asked to contact Merseyside Police social media desk via Twitter @MerPolCC of Facebook 'Merseyside Police Contact Centre' quoting reference 22000766792. You can also call 101 or contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111."
