Video: Premier League divers

Following a handful of diving incidents in the Premier League at the weekend, Sports Mole highlights other players that have taken an easy tumble down the years.

The issue of diving within the Premier League reared its ugly head once again at the weekend.

Tottenham Hotspur winger Andros Townsend was cautioned for simulation, while the same punishment was exacted upon Crystal Palace striker Marouane Chamakh when he inexplicably took a tumble inside the penalty area at Southampton.

Hull City's Robbie Brady was also heavily criticised for going down too easily under a challenge from West Ham United defender Joey O'Brien. A penalty was awarded, which Brady duly converted.

Below, Sports Mole has selected a handful of other English-based players that have hit the floor without any contact in recent years.
