Stoke boss accuses Blues duo of 'diving'

Tony Pulis branded Branislav Ivanovic and Oscar "laughable" after accusing the Chelsea pair of diving in Stoke's 1-0 Premier League defeat at Stamford Bridge on Saturday

Oscar was booked by referee Michael Oliver. Ivanovic, though, escaped a caution after throwing himself down in the box in the first half when he appeared not to be touched. Highlighting what he dubbed “the simulation”, Pulis said: “Ivanovic’s one in the first half is laughable and the lad Oscar, who’s a fabulous player.

This is England. We’re playing in England, we’re not playing in Europe.”
