Liverpool overcame Cardiff City 2-0 in Wales on Sunday thanks to second-half goals from Georginio Wijnaldum and James Milner.

The second goal came from the penalty spot after Mohamed Salah went down under a challenge from a Cardiff defender late in the game.

The Egyptian international was insistent that he wanted to take the spot-kick, thus forcing James Milner, Liverpool’s penalty taker, to physically grab the ball off Salah.

Some Spurs fans on social media noticed the fact that Liverpool fans were completely quiet about the incident, after repeatedly accusing Tottenham striker Harry Kane of being “selfish” for claiming a goal last season.
