A key player for West Ham on Sunday, as they bagged a 0-0 draw at Swansea, was central defender James Collins.

The Welsh international was supremely unlucky not to be awarded man of the match for a brave performance at the heart of the Hammers backline.

Collins has been pretty underused this season, thanks to the form of Winston Reid and with his contract up in the summer, has everything to play for, in a personal manner.

On Sunday, Collins was involved in a curious incident that saw him appear to handle the ball in the West Ham area, before clutching his head in pain.

Sky Sports pundit Niall Quinn suggested Collins was faking injury whilst the West Ham defender was also criticised on Match of the Day 2.

On Monday evening, Collins posted a picture and message on Instagram to put this furore to bed.

In this case, with the evidence on offer, it looks like Collins is no diver!
