THE Football Association are to look into a number of incidents which occurred during Liverpool’s Premier League Under-21 match against Manchester United on Monday night.
Late in the second half of the Reds’ 1-0 defeat a United fan ran onto the pitch at St Helens’ Langtree Park and appeared to direct abuse at Liverpool striker Adam Morgan before tussling with stewards as he was led away.
There were also two instances of flares being set off in the stands, with one being thrown onto the pitch.
The FA have confirmed they are looking into events at the match and are to write to the two clubs involved.
There were also reports of distasteful chants being made by a section of the visiting support but Merseyside Police said no complaints had been made to them and there was no record of any incidents in which they were involved at the fixture.
Almost two years ago at an FA Youth Cup game between the clubs at Anfield a minority of away supporters sang songs about the Hillsborough and Heysel disasters and a flare was let off. There were three arrests for drunkenness and six United fans were ejected from the ground.
