Some fans at the game could be heard directing a taunt towards visiting supporters, relating to the 1989 Hillsborough disaster, that the club said: "Have no place in football."
Chants were also directed at former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher, relating to an incident in 2018 where he was filmed spitting at a passing car.
