Main talking points on Saturday were at the West Brom v Crystal Palace game. Palace should have had a penalty when Zaha was felled in the box and amazingly no one appealed, not even Zaha!

More grief for Palace when Speroni received a forearm smash from Dawson as he headed home. Not only should the goal not have stood but the Albion defender could easily have been sent off.

In the naming and shaming game Liverpool's Jordan Henderson was Saturday's candidate for his pathetic attempt to win a penalty and set his side up with an undeserved chance to beat Hull City.

He earned himself a caution but that just doesn't seem adequate punishment. If the authorities want to stamp out cheating they should do something about it. A one match ban for those guilty of diving would be a start.

Sunday afternoon and ref Phil Dowd had a good game in the Manchester United v Chelsea clash but there were still two major talking points.

Firstly yet another case of penalty area all in wrestling which should have seen Chelsea awarded a penalty. RVP equalised in stoppage time, the opportunity arising after a free kick was correctly awarded to United.

Not sure that the foul, which looked more accidental than intentional, was worthy of a second yellow card though. In fact I'm certain it wasn't.

Have a good week.
