When a player dives to get a pen, surely they lack confidence to score.

There was no dive.
At no point did Saka move toward the defender.
He ran straight - got clipped twice - by a defender rushing in and missing the ball.
You cant get a clearer penalty.

Wouldn't have made much of a difference anyway TBH
We didn't deserve even a point.

Saka falls over at a mere touch all the time, today was a blatant dive and he should have been booked.

These players never get booked nowadays so they do it over and over again, it’s cheating.

I’ve always felt he goes to ground to easily generally, but also yes why would you dive when you have a chance to do something, it’s just pure cheating.

He was getting sandwiched by his two minders but who was there to back him up? Odegaard just spent the first half watching Saka being bullied. He should have helped out himself or delegated to someone to help him.

...and not a very good one at that, Jesus needs to take him under his wing and show him the finer arts of diving. Saka has been very poor of late he needs a few more tricks in his bag as he is getting found out every game. What idiot said he is better than Salah? lol

Was very lucky with the goal, Martinelli’s industry created it and he mishit it but was so close to goal it went in.

He needs Ben White running off him.

White seems to be more reserved now and overlapping less.
