'should be a ban' Salah slammed for dive as Liverpool ace escapes booking against Chelsea
Carol|April. 14, 2019
MOHAMED SALAH has been slated by fans for his "laughable dive" during Liverpool's showdown with Chelsea.
The Egyptian, 26, somehow escaped a booking after he appeared to throw himself to the ground in the penalty area at Anfield.

Salah glided past Willian, but seemed to panic as Chelsea powerhouse David Luiz charged towards him.
The Liverpool star crashed to the ground and tried to call for a penalty, but the referee signalled for a goal kick.
He has been slammed for diving in the past on several occasions and fans have called for him to be punished.
One Twitter user said: "Salah really, really loves a dive. When is this guy going to receive a ban for his obvious cheating?"
Another added: "Wonder if the @FA will have a look at that Mo Salah blatant dive to try and deceive the referee? Should be a ban there."
And some fans called out commentator Jamie Carragher for failing to discuss Salah's obvious efforts to win a penalty.
One said: "You have to call Salah out for that dive. Appreciate your Liverpool bias, but that was disgusting from him in an attempt to cheat and win a pen."
Salah was previously mocked for diving in the box during a clash against January's 4-3 win over Crystal Palace.
And he was caught trying to win a cheeky penalty during the 1-0 win over Brighton earlier this year.
Another dive by Salah to add to the collection 🤦🏻♂️ 😡 #LIVCHE pic.twitter.com/L0aVoGr78C — John Babbacombe (@JBabbacombe) April 14, 2019
