Nuñez had to be restrained by his manager
Darwin Nuñez and Pep Guardiola were involved in a heated exchange following the final whistle of Manchester City’s clash with Liverpool.
The top two teams in the Premier League met at the Etihad Stadium in the early kickoff on Saturday, with the points shared in a 1-1 draw.
Trent Alexander Arnold’s goal in the 80th minute had cancelled out Erling Haaland’s first half strike, which saw the Norwegian rack up 50 goals in the Premier League.
But at the final whistle, the Manchester City manager exchanged words with Liverpool’s striker Nuñez.
After Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp had shared a warm embrace, the Uruguayan clearly felt aggrieved by something the City manager had said or done.
He had to be restrained by Klopp, whilst Guardiola was also ushered away by his own coaching staff.
The 1-1 result means that City’s 100 per cent home record in 2023 is over, but they do remain top of the table on 29 points, one point ahead of Liverpool in second.
Should Arsenal beat Brentford on Saturday evening though, the Gunners will return to the summit of the league.
