Niasse charged retrospectively for diving to win penalty

LONDON (AP) Everton striker Oumar Niasse could become the first Premier League player to be handed a retrospective ban for diving after he was charged with "successful deception of a match official."

The Senegal international won a penalty after he was adjudged to have been fouled by Crystal Palace defender Scott Dann in the 2-2 draw between the teams on Saturday.

A new law introduced at the start of this season allows players to be charged after a game for diving.
