Under the new regulations, a panel will be set up to review footage from the weekend fixtures every Monday in a bid to look for cases of simulation.
If a player is found guilty of diving by the panel, he will receive a suspension.
However, while Burnley manager Sean Dyche said earlier this week that such a sytem would see diving “eradicated” from the game, Carragher thinks the news is bad for Manchester United.
Clearly aiming a jibe at his former club’s fiercest rivals, and at his Monday Night Football co-pundit Gary Neville, Carragher posted this Tweet:
More problems for Man Utd next season. https://t.co/6EG8hrdNEs

Carragher’s tongue-in-cheek comments aside, is Dyche right in saying this system will reduce the amount of players who dive in English football?
