Di Matteo fears Hazard 'diver' tag

Roberto Di Matteo has claimed that Eden Hazard does not get awarded perfectly legitimate penalties because he has an unfair reputation for diving.

The Chelsea manager's words come after his side's 4-1 victory over Norwich in, which the Belgian attacker had two penalty calls turned away by referee Andrew Taylor. They also echo the comments of Brendan Rodgers over Liverpool's Luis Suarez, as the debate about diving only escalates.

"The first three penalties he got in the first few games were clear-cut penalties," Di Matteo said. "But there were a few others where he didn't get them so I wouldn't want the officials to have a prejudice against him.

"If it's a foul, it's a foul. Sometimes they get them right, sometimes wrong. I wouldn't accuse my players of going down too easily.

"It's a different culture. In England you need to try everything to try to stay on your feet."
