Palace striker Chamakh: Penalty would've been awarded for Arsenal

Crystal Palace striker Marouane Chamakh has again insisted he did not dive in defeat to Crystal Palace.

Chamakh believes he would have been awarded a penalty at Southampton last week... if he had been playing for Arsenal.

Palace boss Ian Holloway said: "I've watched the incident and spoken to Chamakh and his explanation is actually quite good.

"He headed it and was just looking at the ball, and he said if he'd been at Arsenal he would have got a penalty.

"But I still think he should have shot."
