Liverpool’s star Salah, 30, covered his mouth while speaking, while Guardiola, 51, the manager of City, shouted out loud.

While Salah’s exact words are still a mystery, professional lip reader John Cassidy has studied their exchange and thinks he has deciphered what Guardiola said.

Via the Mirror, Cassidy reckons Guardiola said to Salah: “Have a good season, good game, you too, what’s up?

After that, Guardiola briefly ducked behind Salah.

Cassidy, however, thinks that when his mouth was once again visible, he continued: “There’s no doubt about it, not maybe – definite. It’s definite, definite.”

The disallowed goal by Phil Foden may have been on the Spanish coach’s mind.

When Foden scored, City thought they had taken the lead, but VAR disallowed it because of a foul by Erling Haaland on Fabinho before to the goal.

The decision incensed Guardiola, who later expressed his anger to Sky Sports: “The referee came to the coaches [before the game] and said play on, play on.

“There were a million fouls. But after we scored a goal, he decided it is not play on. This is Anfield.”
