Greater Manchester Police said the 20-year-old was attacked by two men on Netherbury Close, Gorton at about 22:15 GMT on Saturday.

The injured man was taken to Manchester Royal Infirmary for treatment but died in the early hours of Sunday. A post-mortem examination to establish the cause of his death is to take place.

A police spokesman said the man's death was being treated as murder.

Det Ch Insp Howard Millington said there had been "some kind of fight between the victim and the men who were seen to flee from the scene in a silver car".

"We are appealing for the public's help [as] the incident happened outside on a residential street.

"Did you see a silver car leaving the scene at speed or other cars parked up on the street? You may think that what you saw is only trivial, but it could be vital."
