Newcastle United goalkeeper Tim Krul branded Liverpool striker Andy Carroll a diver after victory yesterday.

Carroll endured another forgettable day for Liverpool, which included a booking for simulation after tumbling over when Krul challenged him in the penalty area.

"He just went over, he dived, I never touched him," Krul said.

"He was looking for a penalty, all strikers try to do that, but he didn't get it, the ref was at a good angle to see it."
