West Ham


David Moyes

, claimed the first goal for

Manchester United

against his side should have been disallowed for crossing the touchline.  Though the Hams were at the lead in the first half, the Red Devils equalized the result with a suspicious goal from

Paul Pogba

, which had to be reviewed by VAR before being allowed.

"I thought we played very well tonight. The only reason we got stretched was a poor decision,"

Moyes told

Sky Sports


"The ball went over my head on the touchline, there was no-one in a better position to see it than me.”

"The linesman is claiming he didn't see it. It was a poor decision. The ball was out of play, the players' reaction gives the best way to look at it and all our players knew it was out of play as well.”

"[After that] we turned off. It really gave us a bad feeling from that disappointment.”

"I am pleased the fans saw a performance that was very good, certainly for 60 minutes. Just disappointed we couldn't give them a result. I think we were really shook by the disappointment of the decision the linesman made."

"If we get the second goal it changes the game. We opened up second half really well too. But then we got a decision that went against us. But when you get disappointments you need to recover quickly.”

"Surely the linesman needs to look to see if the ball is out rather than an offside. I don't know who looks up and down the pitch then.”

"When the game gets stretched it doesn't suit us. We did not get over the disappointment of an unfair goal. We tried to be more expansive and they caught us on the break."
