Reports coming out of England suggest Liverpool star Roberto Firmino is facing a probe over claims of racism by an Everton player during Friday night's Merseyside derby.

Click through the mini-gallery to see the incident between Holgate and Firmino.

According to the Mirror, the Football Association (FA) will launch an inquiry after Toffees defender Mason Holgate claimed he was racially abused at Anfield

Minutes before the halftime break, Holgate appeared to push Firmino into an advertising board after a tussle for the ball.

Firmino then ran towards Holgate and shouted at the Everton full-back in an angry manner.

It has not been revealed what was said by the Brazilian although the Mirror claim referee Bobby Madley will include details of the incident in his report.

Liverpool have confirmed that they will cooperate should an investigation take place.

"The club and player will fully cooperate with the relevant authorities to ensure the facts are established in a thorough manner if deemed necessary or requested," a Liverpool spokesperson was quoted as saying by Sky Sports News.

"While that process is ongoing, we will not be making any further comment."
