Pulis accuses Chelsea of gamesmanship

Stoke manager Tony Pulis has accused Chelsea's foreign players of going to ground too easily after his side's last ditch defeat at Stamford Bridge - and singled out Michael Ballack for particular criticism.

"The problem with foreign players is they go down and stay down," he told The Sentinel.

"Our players jump up after a foul. James Beattie went down three minutes after Michael Ballack went down and jumped straight up.

"He doesn't roll around trying to get someone a booking. They try to put pressure on a referee but we have to accept that.

"I was born in Wales, I played my football in England and we are different to them I suppose. I am not having a go at him (Ballack), it is just their culture."
