Moyes left utterly fuming

David Moyes has been left utterly fuming at the officials after West Ham’s draw with Southampton.

The Irons were left frustrated by the game at St Mary’s Stadium, with Declan Rice equalising after Romain Perraud’s opener.

Perraud’s goal was a controversial one.

Not only was there a foul throw from Kyle Walker-Peters to kick off the move, the referee, Peter Bankes, appeared to block Jarrod Bowen from making an interception prior to Perraud taking his shot.

Moyes was disgusted by the fact that Bankes got in Bowen’s way, and made sure to make his displeasure known in his post-match press conference.

He said, as per Football.London: “The referee blocks Jarrod Bowen getting it, ridiculous. You will see it from the other angles. You can’t get in the way of somebody getting it.”

There was also a shout in the second half for a penalty on Tomas Soucek, as he was dragged to the ground by Perraud in the box.

Moyes felt that the foul was a “judo move” and took aim at the VAR official, who did not tell Bankes to review his decision.

He added: “The penalty kick on Tomas Soucek is a judo move. It’s unreal, it throws him down, whoever is on VAR today needs to go to Specsavers.”
