One Crystal Palace fan is seriously upset with Christian Benteke.

The Liverpool striker was accused of diving after winning and converting the decisive late penalty in the Reds' 2-1 win at Selhurst Park on Sunday.

That's prompted one Palace supporter to start an online petition asking the Football Association to ban Benteke and fine Liverpool six points. 

"During the Premier League game on Sunday 6th March 2016 between Crystal Palace and Liverpool in the 94th minute Liverpool player Christian Benteke DIVED to con the refereeing officials to award Liverpool with a penalty which subsequently won them the game," wrote Adam Greeves on change.org.

You can view (and even sign if you so wish) the petition here. Don't get your hopes up, though.
