Neal Maupay is perhaps the Premier League’s biggest wind-up merchant – and the Brentford striker provoked a reaction from darts star Luke Littler after poking fun at Scott McTominay. Brentford drew 1-1 with United on Saturday, Kristoffer Ajer bagged a late equaliser in the ninth minute of added time after Mason Mount thought he had scored the winning goal just three minutes earlier. And Maupay took to social media after the game to mock McTominay, posting an image of the pair clashing with the caption: “This fan was desperate for my shirt,” followed by a laughing emoji. Littler, a United fan, then responded to Maupay by writing on Instagram that the forward: “Talks more than he scores.” However, Maupay quickly reacted to Littler’s comment by sharing a clip of the 17-year-old doing his ‘big fish’ celebration with the caption: “Talk about a big fish.” The Frenchman was previously involved in a spat with James Maddison earlier this season, having mocked the Tottenham midfielder by imitating his darts celebration during Brentford’s 3-2 defeat to Spurs back in January. The pair were involved in a clash on the pitch, before Maddison took aim at Maupay after the match. “I just said to him, he hasn’t scored enough goals of his own in the last few years to have his own celebration, so he had to copy mine,” Maddison told TNT Sports. “Short story, ended well for us.” However, Maupay hit back on Instagram by posting an image of himself doing Maddison’s celebration with the caption: “Went a bit early with that one. Gutted we couldn’t get the win. More goals and less relegations in my career than James Maddison.” And West Ham star Michail Antonio has branded the former Everton and Brighton striker the “most disliked” player in the Premier League. “Maupay is known to be a bit of a wind-up,” Antonio said on his Footballers Football podcast. “I know someone who knows him and he’s meant to be a nice guy off the pitch but he does it on purpose. I feel he goes on the pitch to rub people up the wrong way and he’s known for it now. “He is probably the most disliked person on the field. One of these days he is going to get beaten up! Back in the day things used to happen in the tunnel, but it’s 2024 now and you probably wouldn’t get away with it.” Join our new WhatsApp community and receive your daily dose of Mirror Football content.
