Sadio Mane scored the opener in Liverpool’s 2-1 win over Leicester City and won a penalty in the added time, which was scored by James Milner.
Mane was fouled by Marc Albrighton, after the Reds star came under pressure and the referee pointed to the penalty spot. Referee’s decision was checked by VAR and later Milner stepped in to score the winner.
However, former footballer Alan Shearer has revealed that he thinks Sadio Mane dived and won a crucial penalty.
“I don’t think it’s a penalty, I think it’s a dive,” the former Newcastle striker said on Match of the Day.
“It’s a contact sport. Mane takes a touch against Albrighton and then decides to go down.”
