David Moyes questions penalty decision for West Ham at Burnley

blank

David Moyes ask why? West Ham United have not been awarded a penalty after their Champions League ambitions fell through to a goalless draw to struggle Burnley.

After beating the likes of Chelsea and Liverpool in recent weeks to secure their spot in the top four, The Hammers find Burnley more stubborn. like Nick Pope thwarted some of the obvious holes they could have created at Turf Moor.

But things could have been different if Graham Scott had pointed to the right spot as Craig Dawson came down after a foul on Dwight McNeil in the box late in the first half.

VAR Jon Moss backed Scott’s decision after two players appeared to collide while chasing a loose ball after a corner.

But although Moyes has barely claimed a penalty on his own, with some soft decisions hit with Manchester City, Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United this weekend, he has questioned the standard. what is now.

“I think this weekend we’ve seen more light penalties given in Premier League than all the seasons so I think if those were awarded, I would expect today to be awarded,” he said.

“But I am an advocate it has to be really accurate. I think today deserved it, if that’s the level of penalties…

“I really enjoyed refereeing this year. I thought it was excellent. I think VAR has done as well as it can but after seeing the penalties yesterday, what will be the difference?

“If they got it wrong yesterday, if they come out and say it, that would be great. I think today is worse than yesterday. ”

The draw makes West Ham just 1 point better than the 5th ranked team, Manchester United, Arsenal and Tottenham are also in the distance to touch each other.

After last weekend’s suffocating 3-2 win over Chelsea, this is a case of dropping two points in the pursuit of Champions League spot.

“It’s part of growing your club,” Moyes said of the defeat. “We said we wanted to challenge the top teams. Last season, we had a near-perfect record against teams below us. During this period, we were not quite as good as we could have been.

“It’s just a little hard to get to that point and earn a little more.”

On the rare occasion that West Ham created a clear chance, Nick Pope got in the way. In front of Gareth Southgate, the seven-time England keeper made close saves from Issa Diop and Said Benrahma in both halves, then denied Jarred Bowen at half-time.

“He’s the best goalkeeper, he’ll be pleased he’s made saves but those are saves you want him to make,” Burnley manager Sean Dyche said. “The defense unit is strong again…

“I think it was a good match for (Pope), a game for sure. I don’t think he will think about Gareth Southgate being here, Gareth has been here a number of times. ”

For Burnley, it’s certainly a feeling of winning a point, even as they continue to languish in the bottom three with just one win all season.

“We will try,” Dyche added. “We didn’t get close to the mark in the first half, we looked a bit tense and nervous. We didn’t find any streams for the play, which can happen and there is a…

“In the second half we played a lot better, not enough to win the game but a lot better… I think that’s an acquired point because they’re a good outfit.”
