Video reveals what exactly happened in Andy Robertson and Ayoze Perez that led to a heavy bust-up between the two in Leicester City Vs Liverpool.
Liverpool Vs Leicester City was one dramatic match in the 8th game-week of the Premier League, as Liverpool won the match by 2-1 after being awarded a last-minute penalty last night.
In the end, James Milner kicked the ball past Kasper Schmeichel to grab the three points by the end of the game. Thus, giving a thrilling end to a much intense game.
Amidst all of this, a bust-up between Andy Robertson and Ayoze Perez stood out, which was seen just after the referee blew the final whistle during the game.
Tensions soared in the game, as players from both the sides joined the scuffle. Although, many tied to calm the pair, as both Perez and Robertson tried to grab each other violently.
Now, it has been revealed that what made Perez be so furious at Robertson but it is claimed that Robertson was seen celebrating the win brushing past the former Newcastle United forward, who didn’t take it well.
Perez shoves the full-back who then sticks his elbow towards the Leicester man’s throat and the ensuing handbags commence with Ricardo Pereira and Youri Tielemans the chief break up men.

After the match Klopp confirmed it was his player’s celebration that annoyed Perez, saying, “Andy Robertson celebrated on the final whistle and pushed [Perez], which he probably didn’t expect, which he was annoyed at.”
Leicester boss Rodgers played down the incident as ‘nothing’ but he did bemoan the penalty decision saying, “It did not look clear and obvious to me. We are bitterly disappointed to concede the penalty. Sadio Mane made the most of the contact. I don’t think if it had not been given by the referee it would have been overturned by VAR.”
Meanwhile, Liverpool managed to maintain their winning streak in the Premier League, as they have recorded 17th successive league in the top-flight league of England.
