Arsenal defender David Luiz has revealed what Liverpool attacker Mohamed Salah told him after the game between the two teams at Anfield on Saturday evening.
Liverpool hosted the Gunners in a week three game and it ended with the Reds running out 3-1 winners at the expense of Arsenal.
The most important decision of the game came at the start of the second half when Arsenal defender David Luiz was penalized for pulling the shirt of Liverpool attacker Mohamed Salah.
At that point, Joel Matip had given hosts Liverpool a first-half lead through a bullet header.
Liverpool were given a penalty at the start of the second half and Mohamed Salah made no mistake from that spot kick to give the Reds a 2-0 lead.
In a chat with the official Arsenal website after the game, David Luiz confirmed that he spoke to Mohamed Salah about the penalty incident before adding that the Liverpool attacker told him that he didn’t go down because he didn’t feel any contact from the defender.
Salah went on to score the third goal for the home side before Uruguayan international midfielder Lucas Torreira pulled one back for Arsenal towards the end of the game as the Gunners succumbed to a 3-1 loss.
