Roberto Firmino clashed with Mason Holgate during the Merseyside derby on Friday
The Football Association has confirmed it will begin making enquiries into an allegation made to referee Bobby Madley, after Roberto Firmino and Mason Holgate clashed during the Merseyside derby on Friday.
Madley was made aware of an allegation following a row between Firmino and Holgate during Liverpool’s 2-1 win over Everton at Anfield.
The pair were involved in an angry exchange after Everton defender Holgate pushed Liverpool forward Firmino into the Main Stand, and the two players had to be forcibly separated by Madley and their team-mates after words were exchanged.
A statement released by the FA on Saturday read: “The FA can confirm that referee Bobby Madley was made aware of an allegation during the Liverpool versus Everton game at Anfield last night and has subsequently reported this to The FA, which will now begin making enquiries into the matter.”
