Tony Pulis fury at play-acting 'disease' as Huth sent off

Stoke manager Tony Pulis believes that players over-reacting to tackles is a "disease" affecting football, as Robert Huth is sent off in a 1-0 home defeat to Sunderland.

Huth saw red for a first-half lunge on David Meyler, and Sunderland made the extra man count when James McClean latched on to Stephane Sessegnon's through ball before applying a cool finish.

Pulis also renews calls for a winter break after the match was played "horrendous" snowy conditions.
