Mohamed Salah accused of cheating by David Moyes before Liverpool scrape win

Mohamed Salah has been accused of cheating by West Ham manager David Moyes after Liverpool's win on Saturday.

The Reds left Anfield with all three points despite going a goal down in a 2-1 result with Salah and Diogo Jota getting on the scoresheet.

It takes Jurgen Klopp's men to the top of the Premier League, though Everton will get a chance to jump above them today when they play Newcastle.

Pablo Fornals opened the scoring for the visitors when the Spaniard latched onto a poor header from Joe Gomez to slot past Alisson.

Liverpool ventured forward in search of an equaliser and were locked out until Arthur Masuaku was adjudged to have fouled Salah in the box just minutes before half-time.

Though there was a clink of boots, the Egypt international made the most of the challenge.

Salah slotted home the spot-kick and super-sub Diogo Jota came off the bench to score the winner.

But Moyes was furious with the Liverpool forward while also bemoaning the lack of VAR over the decision to award a penalty.

He said: "It’s not the sort of football I want to be involved in.

"I think our player stops and throws his arms up because he’s so disappointed about the dive.

"I’m just disappointed they didn’t turn the decision around.

"Maybe in the second half a decision went for us, but the first-half one didn’t.

“I am amazed the penalty kick was given for the action in the first half.

"I really am. I am getting disappointed now.

"Not with the decision but more disappointed that we are allowing those penalty kicks to be accepted. In my books, it is not a penalty.

“We are disappointed. I would not say we were unlucky.

"One of them went for us as they had a goal disallowed but at 1-0, the penalty was given.”
