In fairness, it does look like Sadio Mane goes down very easily:

There is a slight touch on him, but it’s nowhere near enough to justify that kind of tumble. These fans took to Twitter to show their anger with the Liverpool man:

It’s noticeable that it’s fans of other teams who seem to be having a go at him, but something needs to be done about players going down too easily like this. Unless they start getting booked, it will continue.

You would also think that VAR would be on hand to overturn any decisions where a dive leads to a penalty, but we’ve seen the system is reluctant to overturn decisions at times.
