Liverpool's Andy Robertson defends Mohamed Salah from diving accusations

Jordan Henderson could miss Liverpool’s clash with Brighton

Liverpool have been awarded four penalties in their last four league matches, with three coming for fouls on Salah.

The Egyptian has been recently accused of diving in the box, especially after his side's win over Newcastle on Boxing Day, with former Premier League referee Mark Halsey claiming that Salah should receive a two-game ban and Burnley boss Sean Dyche slamming the English FA for not banning him.

Brighton's players and fans reacted angrily to Salah winning the penalty under Pascal Gross' heavy challenge, but Robertson has mounted a strong defence of his Anfield team-mate.

Robertson is frustrated by the accusations against Salah and believes they are mere "desperation" from opponents.

"Every time it happens then we go back and everyone looks at the video and you go, "well, it's not a dive" so how many times is it going to happen?"

Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge missed the team's 1-0 win against Brighton and Hove Albion with a virus, according to Melissa Reddy.

Autoworkers to protest GM investors meeting in Windsor
We are fighting to the bitter end because General Motors is going to have to change their decision. Dias said it isn't too late for GM to change its mind, but time was running out.

And the German says having a player of Fabinho's versatility makes it easier to cope with injury crises.

"I'm completely happy even with the way we did it because I saw pretty early in the game that it was a harsh one, really tough that we would come through".

"When I was fortunate enough to be in a changing room with Sir Alex Ferguson, in times of need when the pressure is on, someone was chasing or when Liverpool or Chelsea were just ahead of us, he would find something we could hook into".

"It was one of the most mature performances of the season".

"They defended like they defended because they knew one mistake from us and they're back in the game".
