Chelsea fan puts together compilation video of Mohamed Salah's 'dives' for Liverpool

Salah was accused of going down easily against Cardiff

Liverpool managed to overcome a spirited Cardiff performance on Sunday to re-take the lead in the Premier League title race.

After the first half ended goalless, Georginio Wijnaldum settled Liverpool nerves by smashing home from a corner.

James Milner then converted from the penalty spot with 10 minutes to go to make sure of the points.

There was one highly controversial moment in the game.

Martin Atkinson's decision to give Liverpool a penalty was unjust in the eyes of many football fans.

Mohamed Salah was being held by Sean Morrison in the box but, after around five seconds of contact, the Egyptian then went down.

While there is no doubt there was contact, many were upset by the way he fell to the ground.

Watch the penalty call below:

Unfortunately, this was not the first time Salah has been accused of going down easily under pressure.

The Egyptian has won numerous penalties this season, including against Crystal Palace, Newcastle and Brighton.

Yesterday's incident prompted criticism from many and now one Chelsea fan has created a compilation video of a selection of Salah's 'dives' for Liverpool.

The video has since gone viral, having racked up 9,000 retweets and over 22,000 'likes' at the time of writing.

Neil Warnock was also enraged by Salah's actions on Sunday, with the Cardiff manager likening his dive to one of Tom Daley's.

"I thought it was a soft one," Warnock said of the penalty, per the BBC.

"We gave him an opportunity. He's got his arms around him and everything.

"I think the end of it was a 9.9 Tom Daley job. I don't think he could have got much higher off the diving board at the end of it. I am sure you will be saying Warnock's a moaning so-and-so again.

"Just after half-time, the tug on Morrison's shirt, which should have been spotted.

"Morrison has been pulled from post to post, and we haven't had one penalty. We are not going to start getting them now."
