“We will review the footage to determine whether any offences have been committed.”

No arrests have been made, the Met added.

 

The Blues won the match 2-0 thanks to goals from N’Golo Kante and David Luiz.

City tasted defeat for the first time in the Premier League this season, meaning Liverpool are still top of the division.
