Cardiff City head coach Neil Warnock compared Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah to Olympic diver Tom Daley following the Welsh club's 2-0 defat to the English Premier League leaders on Sunday.

With Liverpool 1-0 up, Sean Morrison was adjudged to have brought down the Egypt international inside the penalty area. James Milner duly stepped up and converted from to spot to move the Merseyside club back above Manchester City.

"I thought it was a soft one." Warnock said in the the aftermath.

"We gave him an opportunity. He's got his arms around him and everything.

"I think the end of it was a 9.9 Tom Daley job. I don't think he could have got much higher off the diving board at the end of it. I am sure you will be saying Warnock's a moaning so and so again."

Liverpool next face Huddersfield Town at Anfield on Friday evening.
