The hosts equalised 18 minutes later through Sergio Aguero.
And the players' protests have led to an FA charge, with the governing body saying in a statement:
" It is alleged that in or around the 50th minute of the fixture, the club failed to ensure its players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion."
City, who have until 1800 local time on Thursday to respond to the charge, are third in table, a point ahead of Liverpool, who have played a game more, but 12 adrift of leaders Chelsea.
