EDSERSON foiled Mo Salah and fooled referee Anthony Taylor – with a miracle save.

The Manchester City keeper plunged full-length to divert Salah's shot behind – only for a goal-kick to be awarded and the Liverpool striker to soon fire a brilliant winner.

And even though Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp was later sent off for complaining about the officials, Ederson's tip-round stirred up equal excitement on social media.

So quick was his movement, so slight was his touch, that Taylor failed to spot it – and failed to award a corner.

Salah had surged goalwards after first-time passing split City's defence, but Ederson stood his ground and then flung himself to his right to fingertip the ball behind.

Fans on social media were stunned by the save and furious Salah's effort was NOT recorded as an effort on target because of the ref giving a goal-kick.

one armchair observer posted: "Ederson makes an “incredible save” and then takes a goal kick."

Another hit out: "It is inexplicably given as a goal kick. What??!!"

Salah had streaked clear for halfway after first-touch play split City's defence.

And some fans noted that, no matter how outstanding Ederson's diving save was, Salah could have rolled the ball across for Diogo Jota to slot home from 20 yards.
