UEFA have charged Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, with two disciplinary offences after he was sent to the stands during Tuesday’s 2-1 defeat to Liverpool.

Guardiola faces a first charge for his protests to the decision to rule out Leroy Sane’s effort for offside late in the first half, despite the ball having come to him off a Liverpool player.
