VAR made a decision to not disallow Tottenham’s opener for a handball in their 2-0 win over West Ham, this left David Moyes fuming.
Moyes said to Sky Sports: “I can’t believe they ruled it as a goal. Do the rules say that every handball that leads to a goal is disallowed? They have a brilliant goal ruled against Sheffield United for that-so they haven’t sorted this one out? What was on VAR tonight? They need to be subbed, I know that. Not very good, eh?”
“This is the rule. I don’t think it’s a very good rule but that’s the rule. Not for them to give this tonight? I can’t believe it. I can’t believe it.”
In his post-match press conference, Moyes later added: “I thought any ball that hit an arm and led to a goal would be chalked off.”
“I wonder who made the decision? At Sheffield United, we scored a very nice goal in the 90th minute and the boy said it was handball and we did not believe it.”
“Did I believe that’s a fair rule? No, I don’t. Whatever that was on VAR tonight wasn’t doing his work well and he didn’t meet the guidelines we were instructed to deal by.”
