Pep Guardiola to Face No Action after Manchester City’s Defeat by Liverpool.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola will face no action from the Football Association for his actions during the defeat by Liverpool on Sunday.

Liverpool beat the Premier League champions 3-1 at Anfield to move eight points clear at the top of the table and nine clear of Guardiola’s City.

It came after City had two penalty appeals for handball turned down.

Guardiola could be seen saying “thank you so much” as he shook referee Michael Oliver’s hand after the match.

Asked about the incident, the Spaniard said: “No, it was not sarcastic. It was: ‘Thank you so much’.

“I said the same thing after the Tottenham game. ‘Thank you so much’.

“I go over to the referees and my colleagues and I say ‘good luck’ all the time.”
