Mohamed Salah is Taking a Lot of Stick For His Dive Against Chelsea

Mohamed Salah is taking a lot of stick for his dive against Chelsea this afternoon.

Liverpool were in London today to face Chelsea in a match which could have secured their top four place.

Jurgen Klopp would have been keen to wrap that up at the earliest opportunity given Liverpool will play Real Madrid in the Champions League final later this month and it would give them the chance to rest some players ahead of that.

But that didn’t materialise, as Chelsea put up a strong performance to emerge 1-0 winners.

Olivier Giroud got the decisive goal, heading beyond Loris Karius to open the scoring in the first half – and Antonio Conte’s men managed to hold on to get all three points and keep the pressure on the top four.

It’s Salah’s dive – which was punished by referee Anthony Taylor – that’s getting more attention though.

He went down under the challenge of Gary Cahill at the edge of the box and fans aren’t happy as there was no contact:

You get the picture.
