West Ham manager David Moyes has commented on Aaron Cresswell’s red card late in the first half. The Hammers draw at home to Olympique Lyonnais 1-1 in the Europa League quarter-final first leg last Thursday. The second game will travel to France next week.

“First of all, you have to consider the foul on Jarrod Bowen at that moment Cresswell’s red card [Aaron Cresswell’s red card],” said the Hammers boss.

“I hope VAR will consider that part of the play. Of course, I will not comment to the referee. I will answer another question. But tonight UFABET I’m not going to cause any trouble to the referee.

“In the second half we really recovered. We had a break in the first half with 10 men left which was difficult. We stood up and had 1-2 chances. Overall in the second half it was a back-to-back performance but we were playing well.

“I don’t know if the pressure is gone or not because we want to qualify. But most of the time tonight the players work together. We are not playing well and can only do better next week.”
