Former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder David Howells took to Twitter to vent his frustration after Danny Rose received a yellow card from referee Craig Pawson, after he was adjudged to have dived late into the Premier League clash against Fulham.

On the 80th minute, Cyrus Christie was late into a tackle with Rose just outside the box. It should have been a booking for the Fulham wing-back but the referee bizarrely saw it differently and books an astonished Rose for diving. Replays showed it was a clear foul on the Spurs player and it should have been a free kick on the edge of the area for Mauricio Pochettino’s side.

Howells drew comparisons with Liverpool’s Mo Salah who was once again trying his best to dive to win a penalty in their win against Crystal Place at Anfield and did not receive a booking, despite his growing reputation for simulation.

Here’s what he had to say on Twitter.
