Ahead of Liverpool’s remarkable 3-0 win, home fans threw flares, bottles and cans at City’s bus as it arrived at the ground.

ESPN FC’s Glenn Price provided a brief video of the bus arriving at Anfield:

Although no City personnel were injured, two police officers were hurt and the bus itself was “left unsafe to be driven,” per BBC Sport.

The BBC’s report also revealed that Merseyside Police have asked the public to send any footage of the incident.

Reds manager Jurgen Klopp apologised for the incident after the match, while City boss Pep Guardiola referenced the bomb attack on Borussia Dortmund’s team coach that led to their clash with Monaco being postponed last season, per BT Sport:


Liverpool travel to City on Tuesday for the return leg of the last-eight clash with one foot already in the semi-finals after Mohamed Salah, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Sadio Mane’s goals gave them a comfortable aggregate lead.
