West Ham United manager David Moyes should ‘go to Specsavers’ after claiming not to have seen the handball incident during the Premier League game vs Bournemouth, according to Sky Sports pundit Kevin Campbell, writes the FTT.
The Irons secured a 2-0 victory over the Cherries at the London Stadium on Monday night, but there was controversy after Thilo Kehrer appeared to handle the ball seconds before Kurt Zouma put it in the back of the net.
During a BBC interview post-match, the Scottish boss claimed that he didn’t see the incident that gave his side the lead, despite a lengthy VAR review from Mike Dean.
Speaking to Football Insider, Campbell was shocked by Moyes’ revelation, but couldn’t deny that the Hammers fully deserved the victory on the night, regardless of the decision made:
“If David Moyes did not see that maybe he should go to Specsavers. It was blatant.
“Managers could say, ‘I have seen them given. We have got the rub of the green today.’ I would like to see that.
“I am sure West Ham know they got away with one there.
“It is part and parcel of the game though. Some decisions go your way, some don’t. West Ham deserved the win on the night though.”
The Irons were definitely lucky that the goal stood, but their performance more than earned them the win over their opponents and it seems they are really back in business after a slow start to the campaign.
These three points saw them climb up to tenth in the table, and after securing qualification to the last 16 of the Europa League in midweek, they should be full of confidence.
West Ham return to league action to take on Manchester United this Sunday and will be hoping to continue their decent run of form on the back of some strong results.
