Fans Accuse Mohamed Salah Of Diving To Win ‘Soft’ Penalty Vs Manchester City

Fans Accuse Mohamed Salah Of Diving To Win ‘Soft’ Penalty Vs Manchester City

Mohamad Salah earned and converted a penalty against Manchester City - but fans on Twitter accused the Liverpool attacker of going down far too easily.

Salah was undoubtedly pulled back by Ruben Dias as he ran towards the City goal just after the hour mark. However Salah chose to theatrically throw himself to the turf in order to make this clear to the referee.

Fans were strongly divided on social media with many pointing out that, by the letter of the law, it was clearly a penalty - while others claimed Salah's actions were against the spirit of the game.

Mohamed Salah Slams VAR As ‘Killing The Game’ After Liverpool Beat West Ham

published at25 days ago

Salah's powerfully converted penalty briefly gave Liverpool an equaliser at Anfield. However Ilkay Gundogan's second goal of the game - after an error by Alisson - put Manchester City into a 2-1 lead shortly afterwards.

Another Alisson howler than gave Raheem Sterling the chance to make it 3-1 to Manchester City. Then a Phil Foden wonder-strike at the end gave the away side a convincing 4-1 win - City's first victory at Anfield since 2003.

Many fans seemed to suggest that the penalty decision in Salah's favour was correct, but also that the 28-year-old made a meal of the challenge from City defender Dias.

Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
