Everton defender Leighton Baines committed a terrible dive against West Brom, conned the ref [Vine]
Everton’s highly-rated left-back Leighton Baines committed a terrible dive against West Brom on Monday night.
The incident occurred in the first half of the Premier League match, when Baines faced a 1-v-1 situation with Baggies defender Steven Reid.
The Everton #3 initially nutmegged West Brom’s #2, however after appearing to overhit the ball after beating his man, Baines hurled himself to the floor to win a dangerous free-kick.
Reid noticeably contested the dive at the time, but Baines conned referee Michael Oliver to win the favourable decision.
