Watch Olexandr Aliyev's Hilarious Dive Again (Video)
Olexandr Aliyev received his orders for an early bath on Tuesday night the Emirates, getting sent off just before the final whistle, but the Ukrainian should have been turfed off the pitch much earlier for a disgusting attempt at conning the ref.
As if acting out a war scene from Platoon, Olexandr Aliyev was captured writhing around the deck, clutching his ankle in apparent agony, as the number 8 put on an Oscar nominated performance to prove how “injured” he was.
However, when it became obvious that the ref had no interest in Aliyev’s yelps, incredibly the player’s powers of recovery sped into overdrive, with the midfielder jumping on his feet and spiriting to the aid of his Kiev teammates as Arsenal built another attack.
