Liverpool fans react to claims that Mohamed Salah dived in the win over Brighton

Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to leap to the defence of their main man Mohamed Salah, after fans of other clubs claimed that the Egyptian dived in order to win a penalty against Brighton.

The Reds were struggling to break the Seagulls down before Pascal Gross pulled the 26-year-old’s arm back inside the box, prompting Salah to hit the deck.

It was a blatant foul, and one which allowed the former Roma star to score his 14th Premier League goal of the season from the spot.

However, despite Gross clearly upending the forward, fans of rival teams feel that Salah went down easily under little contact, which of course sparked fury from fans of the league leaders who are adamant that their star man is not a diver.

The win got Jurgen Klopp’s men back on track after two successive defeats, but Liverpool fans are not happy that Salah has been accused of cheating…
