Manchester United Fan Puts Together Video Compilation Of Mohamed Salah And Sadio Mane Theatrics For Liverpool
A video showing all of the key VAR decisions to go against Liverpool went viral on Twitter recently - but the other side of the coin has now come to light.
Liverpool supporters feel they are constantly being done over by officials, while Reds boss Jurgen Klopp has vented his fury of late after seeing his side repeatedly have penalty claims turned down.
A two-minute video highlighted the times decisions hadn't gone in Liverpool's favour.
However, quick to show there are two sides to every story, a Manchester United fan has now posted his own video compilation to show occasions when Liverpool players have been all too quick to go to ground, with a particular emphasis on some theatrics from Mohamed Salah.

Under the tile of 'And they wonder why VAR overturns them' and set to the stirring music from Platoon, the Egyptian isn't the only one to be singled out. Clips of Sadio Mane seemingly feigning contact are also thrown into the mix.
Liverpool have dropped more points this term than they did in the whole of last season after their recent blip.

Annoyed after a third consecutive Premier League game without a win, Klopp brought up Manchester United's penalty record following Liverpool's 1-0 loss at Southampton on Monday.
He told Sky Sports: "I hear now that Manchester United had more penalties in two years than I had in five-and-a-half years. I've no idea if that's my fault, or how that can happen."
In response, United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer suggested Klopp may have been making the point to try and influence referees.
Solskjaer said: "I don't count how many penalties they've had, so if they want to spend time on worrying about when we get fouled in the box... I don't spend time on that.
"I can't talk on behalf of other managers, why they say things like this. I felt it worked last year in the semi in the FA Cup, because Frank [Lampard] spoke about it and we had a nailed-on penalty that we should have had, that we didn't get.
"So maybe it's a way of influencing the referees. I don't know. But I don't worry about that. When they foul our players it's a penalty when it's inside the box."
