Flores appeared to suggest he had been hit by Steven Nzonzi with replays suggesting that there was minimal contact from the Potters midfielder.

Walters reckons the Spanish defender was trying to get Nzonzi sent off and should be reprimanded for his conduct.

"For someone to fall over clutching their face when he hasn't been touched, trying to con the referee, should be banned," he told The Sentinel.

"The powers that be should look at that. It's the same as a dive. They need to look at it because it's disgraceful."

Walters scored during Sunday's entertaining game and says Swansea were fortunate to finish the match with 11 men.

"In my eyes, he should get sent off himself for that," he said.

"Nzonzi did not touch him, so for him to react like that, to try to get another professional sent off, there has got to be really strong action."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
