We haven’t needed a ref’s eye view to spot some of the dubious dives in the Premier League this season. Arsenal’s Santi Cazorla’s was the most recent target of vitriol when his collapse in the penalty box robbed West Brom of a chance at a draw. Arsenal travel to Wigan this Saturday (SS3, 12.45pm) – with both teams capable of some nifty play on their day, here’s hoping Lineker and Hansen don’t have to spend the whole of Match of The Day talking about a dodgy fall in the box.
Even though he will be pitchside at Wigan, Arsene Wenger may find his thoughts straying back to London, where 20 year old Wilfried Zaha will be lining up for Crystal Palace against Huddersfield (SS2, k/o 5.20pm). Arsene’s made no secret of wanting to sign the England international new boy in January, and he’s not the only one. If Palace’s manager Ian Holloway had his way, he’d have every Premier League scout stuck in the stadium car park.
Kevin Pietersen, Graeme Swann and Steven Finn may have nabbed themselves an early flight home after their Test cricket exploits, but there’s no such luck for the rest of the T20 side as they play their second match against India this Saturday (SS1, 1pm).
