Following the incident where Ashley Young was booked for tumbling over on Saturday, Manchester United manager, David Moyes, has called for disciplinary action against players who dive.
He said: "I have said for many years diving is something we should have retrospective video for. That would help referees no end.”
This move is supported by Palace chairman Steve Parish who wants “divers” to be shown straight red cards right after the incident. He said: "If preventing a goal-scoring opportunity is a straight red then trying to create one by cheating should be a straight red also.”
"Ashley Young's dive and the appeal before put pressure on the ref to give a subsequent penalty that was certainly outside the area and probably wasn't even a foul.
"Ashley Young has a yellow card and three points and we have no points and one less player to pick from for the next game.
"Might have cost us a point that might keep us up. Need to get some momentum behind a straight red for a dive."
