BBC Sport - MOTD3: Are players diving and making it difficult for referees?
Should Suarez have gone down?
- From the section Football
MOTD3 pundits Alan Hansen, Peter Schmeichel & Pat Nevin discuss whether players are diving in the Premier League.
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho openly criticised players for diving after his side's 3-1 victory against Manchester United on Sunday, but Peter Schmeichel believes the comments were a "clever" tactic to divert pressure away from the championship race.
Liverpool's Luis Suarez won a penalty during Saturday's match against Aston Villa, in an incident which sparked a debate about whether he had dived or not. Alan Hansen argues that if players feel any contact, in a match-winning situation, they are "expected" to go down and "any player in the world" would do the same.
