New footage of Gabriel Magalhaes incident emerges

The Football Association (FA) have enlisted the help of expert lip readers to review footage as they continue their investigation into the matter, while players who were nearby during the furious bust-up between both sides may also be asked what they saw and heard.

In a video posted on the Tasty Football YouTube account on Tuesday, both sets of players embrace shortly after the final whistle, with Henderson initially high-fiving his England colleague Aaron Ramsdale and Gabriel engaging in a hug with fellow centre-back Virgil van Dijk.

Both Gabriel and Henderson disappear off camera before returning into shot shortly as the pair shake hands, albeit only being a brief encounter.
