Manchester United have been slapped with a £20,000 fine by the Football Association due to their players' conduct during Sunday's Premier League defeat to Liverpool.

The Red Devils suffered a disappointing 2-0 loss to their arch-rival to continue a dismal season that has seen them lose eight times already.

During the game at Anfield, United stars including Captain Harry Maguire, and goalkeeper, David de Gea, surrounded referee, Craig Pawson, to aggressively protest his original decision to let Roberto Firmino's goal stand despite Virgil Van Dijk's foul on David de Gea.

The goal was eventually chopped off for a United free-kick after a VAR check but United will now pay a fine for their players’ conduct during the incident.

"Manchester United FC has been fined £20,000 after admitting a breach of FA Rule E20 and accepting the standard penalty," a statement released on Friday by the FA read.

"The club failed to ensure its players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion during the 26th minute of a Premier League fixture against Liverpool FC on 19 January 2020."
