The decision to award the penalty got Liverpool fans talking, but Neville's commentary tipped it over the edge as they called out the double standards - bringing up the treatment of Salah.
Cute from Kane.
Disgrace from Salah.

One Twitter user wrote: "Cute when it's Kane, cheating when it's Salah."
A second tweeted: "It is not 'cute' it is cheating. I've been watching football for over forty years and have never seen a worse cheat than Kane but the dishonest British media protects him."
A third added: "Cute from Kane? It's cheating. The protection the English players get in the media is embarrassing. Imagine the reaction if Salah did this."
While the Reds are struggling in the Premier League, Salah is enjoying a prolific campaign with 17 league goals to his name - only Kane has scored the same amount.
Though Liverpool fans feel he is being unfairly treated considering Kane's actions.
