Fans have slammed Gary Neville after he awarded Mohamed Salah and Phil Foden the 'joint' Man of the Match award.

Salah scored an early contender for goal of the season as he tied the Manchester City defence into knots with some dazzling footwork before slotting the ball past Ederson.

While Foden often saves his best performances for fixtures against Liverpool, and he has now found the net three times in his last three appearances against the Reds.

However, fans weren't happy with the Manchester United icon, who couldn't pick between the pair for the Man of the Match award at Anfield.

"Joint Olympic gold medals and joint man of the match in the same year," one fan fumed.

Another added: "Joint Man of the Match? The game is dead. Let’s all pack up and go home."

"Can't wait to hear what Roy Keane makes of the concept of Joint Man of the Match," one fan joked.

However, one fan wasn't convinced by either choice: "Don’t want to hear joint Man of the Match for Salah and Foden.

"Foden was quality as always but Bernardo Silva was the best player on that pitch by a mile."

City and Liverpool shared the spoils at Anfield, which has become a tough ground for City to get a result in recent years.

Liverpool started off slowly, and City were unlucky to not be ahead going in after half-time.

But the game exploded in the second period with both sides putting on an instant Premier League classic.
