Liverpool and Leicester City players engaged themselves in a bust-up after the full-time whistle blew up in the Premier League game tonight.
Liverpool and Leicester City was full-on drama and intensity, with the last-minute penalty changing the fate of the match in a second, as Liverpool won the game by 2-1 against the Foxes.
Liverpool forward Sadio Mane was brought down by Jonny Evans in the area and after consulting VAR, referee Chris Kavanagh gave a penalty kick and James Milner converted the free-kick to make 2-1.
Amidst all of this, Ayoze Perez was not happy with the decision and was seen confronting Milner before arguing with Liverpool defender Andrew Robertson after the final whistle.
To this, Adam Lallana also barged towards Perez aggressively, which eventually escalated the issue on the pitch until the rest of the players on the pitch tried to calm the situation down.
Perez is NOT happy! 😡
Liverpool extended their Premier League winning run to 1⃣7⃣ matches with an eventful 2-1 win over Leicester today, including a last-minute penalty from James Milner! 🎯

Perez was eventually taken away from the scene by teammates Jamie Vardy and Youri Tielemans as the cameras panned to Jurgen Klopp giving one of his classic hugs.
It is not known why the incident occurred but clearly the former Newcastle player was furious with the outcome of the game. Although, there are certain speculations regarding the reason for this bust-up.
And now Perez seems to be offering Robertson a fight. Impression they'll sort it out in the car park. Robertson looks up for it.

No matter what was the reason behind the argument. Liverpool is now 8 points clear in the table and has a streak of 17 successive wins in the Premier League, and this is the 8th continuous win in this Premier League season.
Although, second-placed Manchester City has a spare game in hand, even if the Citizens win their next game against Wolves on Sunday then still they will be 5 points behind Jurgen Klopp’s side.
Thus, Manchester City has a long fight to battle against the Merseyside club as the Premier League race intensifies with both the English giants vying for the title.
