Tony Pulis branded Branislav Ivanovic and Oscar "laughable" after accusing the Chelsea pair of diving in Stoke's Barclays Premier League defeat at Stamford Bridge.

Potters boss Pulis was fuming with the Blues stars, despite their failure to win penalties and the fact Oscar was booked by referee Michael Oliver. Ivanovic, though, escaped a caution after throwing himself down in the box in the first half when he appeared not to be touched.

Highlighting what he dubbed "the simulation", Pulis said: "Ivanovic's one in the first half is laughable and the lad Oscar, who's a fabulous player. This is England. We're playing in England, we're not playing in Europe.
