Mohamed Salah Branded The Worst Diver In Premier League History After Fall Against Leicester City
Mohamed Salah has been branded the worst diver in Premier League history by fans following his theatrical fall against Leicester City.
Salah hit the deck after a coming together with Ricardo Pereira in the opening stages of the first half on Saturday.
He went down inside the box but both match referee Anthony Taylor and VAR failed to flag it as a foul.
His decision to go down under seemingly little contract irked football fans on social media.
Criticism comes after the Egyptian was accused of diving when Manchester City defender Ruben Dias fouled him last Sunday.

Salah would be likeable if he didn't act like the Egyptian Tom Daley whilst playing football.

One Twitter user wrote: "Why football fans outside Liverpool don't rate the guy. He genuinely doesn't need to do this but consistently decides to on a regular basis."
A second argued: "Every team dives. It'd be stupid not too, weird Salah is the only one singled out."
A third added: "He is a very good player but idk why he dives a lot."
Though his side went onto lose 3-1 following goals from James Maddison, Jamie Vardy and Harvey Barnes.
