VAR got it wrong claims West Ham boss David Moyes

West Ham manager David Moyes insists VAR got it wrong in denying his side a late equaliser in their 1-0 loss to Sheffield United in the Premier League last night. 

Robert Snodgrass thought he'd scored to snatch a draw in injury-time but the video official ruled it out due to a handball by Declan Rice in the build-up.

Moyes says he's doesn't understand the decision:

"I thought it was a deserved equaliser, it looked a good goal for me.

"Declan does great, powering through the middle and does everything right - good pass and good finish. It looked a good goal.

"I've seen the replay and it still looks a really good goal. If you've played football and you've been there and are a football man, then it can only be a goal.

"The defender did well to get back at Declan, heads it and tries to clear it, and it hits Declan's arm. It used to be that defenders defended with their hands behind their back, should all players on the pitch do that now?

"It was a good goal and a very good performance. It was certainly worthy of at least a draw, maybe more."

Former Republic of Ireland midfielder Rice was also unhappy about the goal being disallowed.

"I just can't get over it. I've not intentionally meant to handball the ball," he said on Sky Sports.

"I don't think pretty much anyone wants to have VAR in the game.

"They are celebrating VAR like it's a goal, no one wants to see that."
