The defender making his return was unfazed about the threat of the Citizens as he put in a great display in their 5-2 victory over Pep Guardiola's side.

He made a total of 38 touches in the entire 90 minutes and also made 6 clearances, which was more than any player from either team on the pitch. 

He's been lauded by fans for his massive performance in Sunday's game.

A fan tweeted: "Tremendous performance “from 1 to 11” from #lcfc today. Many men of the match but personally like to praise Daniel Amartey. He’s been through hell with his ankle injury, but he’s “back” judged on that effort. Genuine question: Do we need to sign a new centre back?

Another added: "Daniel Amartey had a decent outing on his return to the pitch against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium today. He was simple, tidy and solid at the back."

A fan also tweeted: Never, ever sell Daniel Amartey. Such a great utility player. So reliable.."
