There was much talk about the potential of a repeat from last season when Manchester City’s team bus arrived at Anfield to face Liverpool, but there were no such scenes today and no reports of any Kopparbergs hitting windows.
Despite a heavy police presence and City reportedly having fifteen HD cameras fitted on the bus to identify potential offenders, the team bus arrived at Anfield to a few boos from Liverpool fans, and some support by a group of City fans, but little incident otherwise.
City, who welcome back Benjamin Mendy and give a start to Riyad Mahrez, are looking to end a 15 year winless run at Anfield, with City and Liverpool tied on points and the reigning champions ahead only on goal difference.
Journalist Charlotte Duncker posted a video of City’s reception (or lack thereof) on Twitter:
