Liverpool are investigating an alleged incident between Wolves defender Jonny and a ball boy during the Reds’ 1-0 win at Anfield.

The PA news agency understands the club are looking into claims the Spaniard came into contact with the youngster while trying to retrieve a ball in front of the Sir Kenny Dalglish Stand.

“The club is aware of the incident and will follow established protocols in terms of gathering the relevant information,” Liverpool said in a statement given to PA.

“While that process takes place we will be making no further comment.”

It is understood Wolves are aware of the alleged incident but are awaiting further feedback from Liverpool.

Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo refused to discuss VAR’s impact on the game.



“I am sorry but today I don’t want to speak about VAR, it is not about that. I just don’t want to mention anything about it,” he said.

“The only thing is the decisions are being taken by a referee that is miles away from here and he doesn’t feel the game, he is not at the game.

“I am a coach, I have to think about my own things but what we don’t want is what is happening – Liverpool are a fantastic team, club, stadium and we are celebrating a non-goal. Come on.”
