‘I think the second goal, the penalty, killed the game," Luiz told Sky Sports after the game.

‘Yes [it was instinctive], I think you cannot take this out of the players, it’s just a reflex. When I turn I see and I take but I take off the power [of the pull]. 
 
‘That’s when I spoke with Momo [Salah] and he said, “I didn’t feel you touch me, that’s why I didn’t go down to the floor”.
