Liverpool midfielder Charlie Adam insists he's no diver.

The midfielder went sprawling after the faintest of touches from Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand, winning the free-kick from which Steven Gerrard shot the Reds in front.

He blasted: "Well, everyone has an opinion and I felt a touch.

"If I hadn't gone down I would have been clear through on goal so there must have been contact. That's the way I look at it.

"I felt contact when I went past Rio and that's the way it goes. I'm not that type of player. I'm not just going to go down easily.

"It was a foul and that is why the referee gave it and the goal was just different class. That is why Stevie is one of the best players in the world."
