Matt Le Tissier: Response to Victor Moses penalty incident 'speaks volumes'

The Southampton legend says he hasn't heard 'a single person who's not a Stoke fan defending' the Nigerian.

Matt Le Tissier feels the overwhelming response to Victor Moses' actions during Stoke City's 2-1 win over Swansea City 'speaks volumes.'

The Nigerian won a penalty for the Potters against the Swans, with referee Michael Oliver awarding a spot-kick after deciding that Angel Rangel had fouled him.

But contact appeared extremely minimal from replays and Moses has been accused of diving by many after the game.

Swansea boss Garry Monk branded the penalty decision 'a disgrace' and accused the Stoke man of cheating. Moses' manager Mark Hughes, perhaps predictably, defended him.

And former Southampton midfielder Matt Le Tissier has now had his say on Twitter, tweeting that he hasn't heard anyone that isn't a Stoke fan defend Moses.

The ex-Saints man then retweeted a Potters supporter that was critical of the 23-year-old 'even as a Stoke fan.'

Swansea had earlier taken the lead through a Wilfried Bony penalty, which the majority of onlookers feel was correctly awarded. Monk's side were dominant early on but Charlie Adam's successful spot-kick seemed to swing the game.

From thereon in, Stoke looked the better side and a Jonathan Walters winner sealed the three points to take them up to 10th in the Premier League.
