LONDON: Everton striker Oumar Niasse could become the first Premier League player to be handed a retrospective ban for diving after he was charged with "successful deception of a match official."

The Senegal international won a penalty after he was adjudged to have been fouled by Crystal Palace defender Scott Dann in the 2-2 draw between the teams on Saturday.

A new law introduced at the start of this season allows players to be charged after a game for diving.

Niasse could be suspended for two matches if the panel that convenes to oversee his case rules unanimously he was guilty of the offense.
