THE FA have launched a review into a fiery row that erupted during Arsenal’s 3-2 win over Liverpool on Sunday.
The incident occurred after the Gunners were awarded a penalty with around 15 minutes remaining.
Reds skipper Jordan Henderson and Arsenal defender Gabriel were at the centre of the bust-up, with Granit Xhaka also squaring up to Henderson and grabbing his shirt.
It is believed referee Michael Oliver alerted rivals managers Mikel Arteta and Jurgen Klopp to comments which were made between players in the closing minutes of the game.
The two managers reportedly spoke with the referee after the match too.
Oliver reported the incident to the FA after the game and a review will be launched into the matter.
An FA spokesperson said: “We are aware of an incident that took place during the match between Arsenal and Liverpool.
“We are in dialogue with the match officials and will review the details of the incident.”
Bukayo Saka kept his cool throughout the saga by slotting home the penalty to win the game for his side.
The winger was unaware of what was going on as he waited to take his spot-kick and said after the match that he thought it may have been a ploy by Liverpool players to distract him.

Asked about the penalty, Saka said: “I’ve been practising, all the time. We practice.
“I don’t know what was going on with the fighting, if they were trying to get in my head, but I knew what I was going to do in my mind, and stuck with it.”
