Liverpool's Andy Robertson defends Mohamed Salah from diving accusations

Brighton vs Liverpool Premier League live score and goal updates

Egypt hitman Salah converted the penalty he won for himself to steal Liverpool a 1-0 win at Brighton on Saturday, reaffirming the Reds' Premier League lead.

"Every time it happens, we go back, everyone looks at the video, and you go, 'well, it's not a dive",' Robertson said.

Robertson however feels the issue is becoming tiresome, with replays clearly highlighting how Salah was fouled by his opponents on each occasion.

"If you fall from the horse, the best thing to do is go immediately back on it", Klopp told reporters at the Amex Stadium after the game. They still appealed. It's a bit of desperation'.

'I was at the edge of the box (against Brighton) and it was a stonewaller.


Having started in 20 of the 21 games he's been in the Premier League matchday squad, Robertson needs to be handed a rest at some point by Klopp, if Liverpool venture into the latter stages of the Champions League again, but he is most certainly one of Liverpool's unsung heroes and can become a club great if he continues on his current path.

Rafa Benitez claimed the former Roma winger won a "soft" penalty in the 4-0 win over Newcastle on Boxing Day, while Jurgen Klopp was forced to defend Salah after he was accused of simulation in the win 5-1 over Arsenal.

The Egyptian could have increased that tally further still with a second against Arsenal, though offered a second spot kick up to team-mate Roberto Firmino to complete a hat-trick.

A second-half penalty from Mohamed Salah secured all three points for the Reds who are now seven points clear of second-placed Manchester City and nine ahead of Tottenham.

He sits in joint first place alongside rival Harry Kane and newcomer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang - each with 14 domestic strikes to their name.
