Reds skipper Jordan Henderson and Arsenal defender Gabriel were at the center of the altercation, with Granit Xhaka also facing Henderson and snapping his jersey.

Referee Michael Oliver is believed to have alerted opposing managers Mikel Arteta and Jurgen Klopp to comments made between the players in the final minutes of the game.

The two managers also reportedly spoke to the referee after the game.

Oliver reported the incident to the FA after the game and an investigation into the matter is being launched.

An FA spokesman said: “We are aware of an incident that took place during the game between Arsenal and Liverpool.

“We are in dialogue with the match officials and will review the details of the incident.”

Bukayo Saka kept his cool throughout the saga, taking home the penalty kick to win the game for his team.

The winger didn’t know what was going on as he waited for his free-kick and said after the game he thought it was a ploy by Liverpool players to distract him.

Asked about the punishment, Saka said, “I practiced all the time. We practice.

“I don’t know what was going on with the fights, if they were trying to get inside my head, but I knew what I was going to do inside my head and stuck with it.”
