Pulis rallies clubs against diving


Chamakh is a doubt for Saturday's visit of Southampton having suffered a hamstring injury in south Wales

Mauricio Pochettino's Saints are likely to be buoyed heading into the game at Selhurst Park as their quartet of England internationals return to club duties

Adam Lallana and Luke Shaw both came off the bench as England beat Denmark 1-0 while Jay Rodriguez and Rickie Lambert also made up Hodgson's 30-man squad

Pulis was full of praise for the production line in place at Southampton and revealed he had a soft spot for Lallana, who he has been aware of from a young age

"I have watched them quite a few times and I think the manager has done a fantastic job there," Pulis said

"They have got an identity to their team, they play a certain way that is a little bit different to most other teams in the Premier League

As a manager you enjoy watching certain teams

"Lallana actually went to school with my daughter so we always look at what Adam is doing

He comes from a lovely family and is a very level-headed lad and it is lovely to see him doing so well

"With Shaw and (Callum) Chambers, I don't know what they put in the water down there but they certainly produce some very, very good players."
