Liverpool have been charged by UEFA over the disturbances at their Champions League clash with Manchester City on Wednesday.
Disciplinary proceedings have been opened by European football’s governing body after a raft incidents, which overshadowed a stunning 3-0 first leg quarter-final win for Jurgen Klopp’s side at Anfield.
The club have been charged with four separate breaches of Article 16 of UEFA’s disciplinary regulations relating to the behaviour of Liverpool supporters.
Liverpool have been charged due to acts of damage, crowd disturbance, the throwing of objects, and the setting off of fireworks.
The charges of setting off fireworks and throwing of objects relate to incidents from inside the ground and the charges of acts of damage and crowd disturbances relate to incidents involving the Manchester City FC team bus.
Under Article 16, Liverpool are partly responsible for the order and security both inside and around the stadium before, during and after matches.
They are liable for incidents of any kind and may be subject to disciplinary measures and directives unless they can prove that they have not in any way been negligent in the organisation of the match.
They are also liable to ensure their supporters behave appropriately irrespective of any negligence in relation to the organisation of the match.
