Manchester City fined over Liverpool conduct


Manchester City have been handed a fine after admitting a Football Association misconduct charge relating to their 1-1 draw with Liverpool earlier this month.

The Citizens were charged for failing to ensure that their players conducted themselves in a proper manner after they surrounded referee Michael Oliver following his decision to award the Reds a penalty in the 50th minute at the Etihad Stadium.

The protests led to bookings for Gael Clichy and David Silva, with James Milner opening the scoring from the spot before Sergio Aguero equalised on 69 minutes to clinch a share of the spoils.

A statement from the FA read: “Following an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing today [Monday 27 March 2017], Manchester City have been fined £35,000 after the club admitted an FA misconduct charge.

“City breached FA Rule E20(a) in that in or around the 50th minute of the game against Liverpool on 19 March 2017, the club failed to ensure that its players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion.”
