WHAT THEY SAID: When discussing the incident, BT Sport pundit Rio Ferdinand said: "I don't know how Tsimikas hasn't pushed Pep Guardiola out of the way there."

AND WHAT'S MORE: Guardiola has been known for his touchline theatrics in matches against Liverpool, famously signalling two fingers to the sky when he believed his side were on the wrong end of several handball decisions. Last season he was also pictured having a joke with Liverpool full-back Trent Alexander-Arnold as he lined up for a throw-in.
