In response to Sky Sports’ tweet of the incident, they wrote: ‘Watch this back and revel in it. Bruno (Guimaraes) screams in his face and walks off, not giving a f*** about his booking. Murphy shoves him and legs it to a safe distance. Joelinton and (Alexandar) Isak have words, (Kieran) Trippier has a go. Murphy reappears to wave him off. Eddie’s utter s***house Mags.’

Dan Watson wrote: ‘Best thing he’s done all season,’ while Kylen described him as ‘savage’.
