Liverpool conceded an early goal against Atletico Madrid in the Champions League through Saul, and unfortunately for the Reds, that was the only goal scored throughout the game.

Though we agree that it was not the start we expected from the reigning Champions of Europe and arguably the best team in the world right now, however, it was something else that has left Liverpool fans fuming on social media.

To say that Atletico players were diving all over the place will be an understatement. They were shamelessly over-exaggerating absolutely everything.

The game really could do without the theatrics and playacting – trying to get other team’s players booked is a form of dark arts and is simply just bad sportsmanship.

Liverpool fans took to Twitter in their hundreds to complain about what they were seeing, one going as far as to call Atletico players “playacting cheats” and an “absolute disgrace”, and we are in agreement with a lot of what’s been said.

Here are some of our favourite Tweets about Atleti tonight:
