Mohamed Salah dive against Crystal Palace: The Liverpool forward has once again been criticized for diving in the Premier League game vs Palace.
Liverpool beat Crystal Palace in a dramatic game at Anfield, as Jurgen Klopp’s side emerged 4-3 winners.
A brace from Mohamed Salah, and goals from Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane led a stunning comeback after Crystal Palace took a 1-0 lead in the game at halftime.
Salah scored the first goal of the game in the 46th minute, while Roberto Firmino’s goal in the 53rd minute gave Liverpool the lead.
However, Mohamed Salah grabbed the headlines for an alleged dive in the first half, as Liverpool were chasing the game after being 1-0 down early in the 34th minute of the game.
Mohamed Salah dive against Crystal Palace:
The Egyptian forward went down far too easily after being pressured on the ball from Mamadou Sakho.
The defender stuck his leg out to win the ball but replays showed that there was no contact between Sakho and Salah.
The incident happened a few minutes before the end of the first half, and the Crystal Palace’s players made their feelings known after the dive.
Here’s the incident:

Just heard BBC criticising Salah’s diving saying “great players don’t do that”. Name a world class attacker in the last decade who doesn’t.

I had major respect for Mo Salah last season but his diving antics are nothing short of pathetic, so glad he wasn’t awarded ANOTHER bullshit penalty today.

Unai Emery gets fined for kicking a bottle. But nothing will happen to Mo Salah for diving for the 3rd time this season. Shocking. #LIVCRY
