West Ham were hard done by against Burnley at the weekend, according to pundit Richard Keys.
The Hammers were held to a 0-0 draw at Turf Moor in a game that saw few opportunities for both teams.
However, the Irons were denied a penalty in the first half when Dwight McNeil tripped Craig Dawson in the area, only for the referee to wave play on.
VAR took a look at the decision and decided that the on-pitch call was correct, to the chagrin of both Keys and David Moyes.
The Hammers will have felt particularly aggrieved after soft penalties were awarded to all of the club’s top-four rivals; Manchester City beat Wolves with a soft spot-kick, Manchester United did the same against Norwich, while both Liverpool and Chelsea beat Aston Villa and Leeds respectively with penalties.
The Hammers were not given the decision, and Keys felt that the call was clearly wrong against Burnley.
Writing on Twitter, he said: “VAR has been awful this weekend. Absolutely awful. Man City – never a pen. Villa were robbed. Saints as well & now West Ham – all because errors were not ‘clear & obvious’. This nonsense catch all get out needs to be changed. We’ve got technology so use it properly.”
