Liverpool have reported chants made during Saturday’s Women’s Super League defeat away at Manchester United to the Football Association.
It is understood some United fans sang “always the victim, never your fault” and other anti-Liverpool songs.
Liverpool believe the chants, which have previously been heard in games between the clubs’ male sides, are related to the Hillsborough disaster.
The match at Leigh Sports Village was watched by a crowd of over 2,800.
