Lingard can be heard complaining that ‘the ball was already out’ before accusing Alexander-Arnold of ‘cheating’ as Loftus-Cheek joins in to echo the Manchester United attacker’s thoughts.
As the Liverpool right back continues to hold his hand out to the pair, he tells Loftus-Cheek and Lingard to ‘be graceful in defeat’ as the light-hearted bickering goes on.
Out of nowhere, Eric Dier joins the debate by insisting that ‘it was a clear foul’ as the different opinions cloud what happened during the game.
