    David Luiz reveal what Salah told him amid penalty decision in Liverpool defeat

    David Luis has revealed Mo Salah spoke to him after referee awarded a penalty that led to the Egyptian scoring Liverpool's second

    Lfc rumourLiverpool could inflict Arsenal's first Premier League defeat and made it three consecutive wins after a 3-1 scoreline at Anfield.

    Joel Matip's header late in the first half gave the Reds a first half lead over the Gunners before Mohamed Salah took the game away with two goals early in the second period.

    Salah scored Liverpool's second from a spot kick after the Egyptian appeared to have being pulled back by former Chelsea defender David Luiz in the penalty area.

    Luiz however, agreed his action was worth a penalty but revealed the Liverpool forward said he never knew he had a tug on his shirt.

    Speaking to Arsenal media after the match, on the penalty awarded, the former Chelsea man said: "Yes, I think it is. You cannot take out from the players, it is just a reflex.

    "When I turned I see that I was taking and so I took off [my hand from Salah's shirt].

    "I spoke with Mo and he said 'I didn't feel you touch me, that's why I didn't go down to the floor' but now with the VAR, you cannot see the power so it is difficult for the referees.

    "He saw the shirt like that, but I don't know. It's difficult for them so I cannot complain with their efforts because it is difficult for them too.

    "If you play with an extra-large shirt now, there could be a penalty every time.
