Everton striker Oumar Niasse hit with diving charge

Everton striker Oumar Niasse has been hit with a diving charge.

Niasse won a penalty in the fifth minute of 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace on Saturday after minimal contact with defender Scott Dann.

The 27-year-old has been charged for 'Successful Deception of a Match Official' and has until 6pm today (Tuesday) to respond.

Niasse will face a two-game ban if he is found guilty.

A three-man panel - made up of one former official, one former manager and one former player - will look at the incident, reports The Sun.
