West Ham fans have reacted furiously on Twitter after David Moyes admitted that he has had clarification from Premier League referees that two decisions were incorrectly given against us over the past 10 days.
The Hammers are currently in the midst of a poor run of form.
We drew away at Burnley 10 days ago and then lost at Arsenal last Wednesday night.
West Ham were poor in the two games, there’s no denying that. We were on the wrong end of some absolutely shocking decisions though.
Craig Dawson was brought down inside the box away at Burnley – it was a stonewall penalty, but wasn’t given.
Then at the Emirates last week, Vladimir Coufal was given a second booking and subsequently sent off after winning the ball from Alexandre Lacazette.
And it seems as though the PGMOL have realised the errors of their ways.

Evening Standard writer Jack Rosser was at Moyes’s presser yesterday and shared what the Scot said about his discussions with the Professional Game Match Officials Limited:
That really is disgraceful. What good is VAR for if the people watching it still cannot get decisions right?
Why on earth weren’t the two above decisions overturned by VAR? Why did Anthony Taylor refuse to even check the monitor after his shocking decision to send off Coufal? There are so many questions that need answering.
You know full well that had the two decisions been given against one of the Premier League’s ‘big six’, they would have been overturned immediately.
There is definitely something going on that needs to be investigated by an independent body.
