The Football Association has fined Manchester City £35,000, after the club admitted a misconduct charge for failing to control their players , during their 1-1 draw at the Etihad.
City’s players protested in the 50th minute, after referee Michael Oliver awarded a penalty to Jurgen Klopp’s side, after Gael Clichy fouled Roberto Firmino in the area.
They continued to argue even after the penalty was converted by their former player James Milner. Sergio Ageuro equalized for City 18 minutes later.
“Following an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing today (Monday 27 March 2017), Manchester City have been fined 35,000 pounds after the club admitted an FA misconduct charge,” the governing body said in a statement.
“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.”
Guardiola’s men, who are third in table, travel to sixth-placed Arsenal on Sunday.
