Liverpool and the police are investigating an incident which took place during Friday night's 5-1 FA Cup third-round win over Oldham at Anfield, where visiting defender Tom Adeyemi was seemingly the target of abuse from fans.

Just when the aftermath of striker Luis Suarez's eight-match ban for racially abusing Manchester United defender Patrice Evra was dying down, the Merseysiders have found themselves having to deal with another issue.

Late in the game the 20-year-old, on loan from Norwich, appeared to take offence to something shouted from the Kop. Despite reassurance from his team-mates, Dirk Kuyt and Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard, the right-back was visibly upset and seemed close to tears.
