Mohamed Salah is a terrific, terrific footballer and Liverpool are privileged to have him at their disposal.
And that goal against Chelsea on Sunday to send the Reds back to the top of the Premier League table was a real stunner.
It would be fair to say that the Egypt international has picked up a reputation as a player who hits the ground too easily inside the opposition box, though.
There was an example of that during Sunday’s clash against the Blues with the attacker seemingly attempting to buy a spot kick under a challenge from David Luiz.
And that led to a number of Tottenham fans criticising the former Roma attacker on social media.
Spurs supporters do not like Liverpool, and it also works the other way around.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side are no longer locked in a title race with the Reds and Manchester City, but a number of their club’s fans were furious with what looked to be a dive from Salah at Anfield.
A selection of the Twitter reaction can be seen below:
Not punished. Not even mentioned as a dive on Sky. #agenda.
