Chelsea forward Kai Havertz should have been shown a straight red card for diving against Crystal Palace in their FA Cup semi-final, according to Jamie O'Hara.
Havertz was booked for simulation after going down inside the penalty in the first half of Sunday's match at Wembley.
Former Tottenham midfielder O'Hara was furious with the Germany international and believes he should have been sent off by referee Anthony Taylor.
"It's a shocking dive," O'Hara said on Sky Sports News.
"Absolutely no place for it in the game. He’s got a booking for it. The Crystal Palace players are going crazy because that for me is such bad simulation.
"It's not what you want to see in the game, especially at the highest level in a big moment.
"I would have sent him off!" 😡— Sky Sports News (@SkySportsNews) April 17, 2022

"It's actually stupid from him because his first touch takes him past the defender anyway. He's in, he can get a shot off. He's almost one-on-one with the goalkeeper.
"Shocking from him. I hate to see it in the game. We need to get it out as quick as possible.
"I would have sent him off."
