Crystal Palace striker Marouane Chamakh denies he dived during defeat to Southampton.

Palace boss Ian Holloway will sit down this week with Chamakh to discuss the incident.

He said: "I am really disappointed. He touched me — that is certain. The referee can’t tell me, “No, he didn’t”. I felt it when he touched me.

"I can’t guarantee we’d have scored. Whatever happens, it changed the match. I don’t think the referee took into account I had the chance to score. To get a card is severe. If he had given the foul, it would’ve been a red card; it would have changed the match."
