Twitter labels Liverpool hero Philippe Coutinho as “disgraceful” after “worst dive ever” v Tottenham

The Twitter police are far from happy with Philippe Coutinho after what is being described as the “worst dive ever” during Liverpool’s Premier League clash with Tottenham Hotspur tonight.

The Brazilian playmaker is a wonderful footballer, but soiled himself with an awful piece of simulation which got him booked midway through the first half of the high-press exhibition at Anfield.

Coutinho knew that there was no chance that he would catch the ball that he had knocked past Toby Alderweireld, and went down as if he had been shot! And he has been slated for it on Twitter!

However, Coutinho’s evening is proof that cheaters do sometimes prosper, because he has since scored to give Jurgen Klopp’s Reds a 1-0 lead, and land a blow on Tottenham’s Premier League title chances.
