West Ham 'livid' after controversial VAR decision hands dramatic win to Sheffield

Oli McBurnie

McBurnie's winning goal came after a mistake from Hammers goalkeeper David Martin, who had to replace injured teammate Lukasz Fabianski early in the contest in net.

Rice revealed the anger in the London locker room after the decision was made against her, saying that the majority of England's top division footballers don't want VAR to be used in the game.

"We're fuming, we're livid", Rice said. "All boys are angry".

Despite the decision helping his team, Sheffield United's coach Chris Wilder couldn't help but offering his commiserations to the opposition. We created some opportunities and missed some. I've seen a replay and it still looks a really good goal.

But Chris Wilder's side, enjoying a remarkably successful first season back in the top-flight, are now just four points behind Chelsea in fourth. It was a brilliant bit of midfield play by Declan Rice, who powered through, and I don't know where he puts his hands when the ball heads it against him, maybe that's a tactic you can use now. If you run with your arms like that with the rules as they are now it's handball but it's not intentional. The VAR checks it and it's a real kick in the teeth.

VAR was first tested on the world stage at the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation and adopted by the English Premier League soon after.

Donald Trump's Impeachment Trial Likely To Begin Next Week
Unlike jurors, however, the senators will also have the power to decide for themselves the rules of the trial. He added, "if the existing case is weak, House Democrats should not have impeached in the first place".

Moyes agreed with Rice's angry post-match assessment that "pretty much everyone doesn't want VAR in the game".

"There's been so many decisions this season that have been insane. They celebrated the VAR as if it were a goal and football shouldn't be like that". "We would've been devastated if we'd have drawn that game".

"I just can't get over it, the way he's knocked it into my hand. I didn't want to intentionally handball the ball", said the England worldwide at Sky Sports.

West Ham thought they had equalised in stoppage time when Robert Snodgrass fired home but a VAR check harshly ruled that Declan Rice had handled the ball in the build-up.

All of this supports Moyes' claim that there is a movement to change the handball rule and when asked if the IFAB should discuss it at their February 29 annual meeting in Belfast, he said: "I think yes".

"We are not up to speed with a lot of the Premier League clubs, if not all of them, in certain aspects, whether it is academy or whether it is the training ground or investment into players".
