The Reds equalised through Salah's spot kick after the forward was brought down by Ruben Dias. While there was clear contact, his theatrical dive did little to impress viewers at home.
Salah has developed a reputation among fans for going down too easy and @TheImmortalCTZN has compiled a number of tackles he looks to have made the most out of.
Check it out below.

Like the Dias challenge on Sunday, some of these challenges do have clear contact that could warrant a foul.
But rival supporters are becoming more and more furious with the act and think Salah is ruining his reputation as a top Premier League star.
I know we want to win but this is a very good player what makes him feel he has to cheat so often he making premiership look very silly ,

The medical staff at Liverpool must be the best in the world,i mean, how can you survive that brutality on a football pitch and still be able to walk.

I blame the Refs. If they gave players like this a card for simulation every now and then they would stop doing it or at least think twice about it maybe.

He's actually an embarrassment of a footballer the worst I've seen that dive yesterday sums him up https://t.co/qZ0pvkpfMw

Until he gets sent off for simulation he will continue to dive like yesterday https://t.co/7sevlMkSnu

Despite Salah netting the equaliser following Ilkay Gundogan's opener, it was all for naught as Pep Guardiola's side ran rampant.
Gundogan netted his second of the game following a mistake from Alisson, who would then gift Raheem Sterling the third.
Phil Foden's lovely effort sealed the victory and saw City extend their lead at the top to five points.
They're also ten points ahead of reigning Premier League champions Liverpool, who sit fourth.
