West Ham boss David Moyes 'pulling his hair out' as Gabriel Magalhaes controversy analysed - expert

West Ham manager David Moyes “must be pulling his hair out” after Gabriel Magalhaes’ winner for Arsenal on Sunday, according to Kevin Campbell.

The former Gunners and Everton striker, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, claimed Moyes, 59, has “every right to be angry” with referee the officials at the London Stadium.

Rob Holding appeared to handle the ball in the build-up to Gabriel’s winner on Sunday.

Speaking to Sky Sports (1 May), Moyes contested Arsenal’s second goal and questioned why VAR official Darren England did not to step in.

Campbell called for better consistency from officials after the incident.

“Moyes has every right to question it, of course he does,” he told Football Insider.

“At the end of the day, I don’t know what the rules are anymore. We have seen similar incidents flagged up and similar incidents let go. How do you make your mind up? How do you know what’s what?

“David Moyes must be pulling his hair out. It would have been a soft one but it did hit Holding’s arm. Do we play to the letter of the law? Does VAR need to get involved? It brushed against his arm so David Moyes has every right to be angry.

“Sometimes you get the decisions and sometimes you don’t. We get that. The issue is consistency. We want to see consistency from the officials. The same need to be applied for everybody. That is not happening at the moment.”
