David Moyes admitted his confusion after a potential red card incident in Everton’s draw with West Ham on Saturday.
Carlo Ancelotti’s team moved away from the London stadium with a point thanks to a draw by Dominic Calvert-Lewin, four minutes after Issa Diop had given the command to the Hammers in the first half.
However, an incident in the second period led to a VAR revision for a red card.
Off the ball Mason Holgate and Albian Ajeti were involved in a challenge, in which the West Ham man appeared who pushed his head back towards the Everton defender.
The 23-year-old fell to the ground leading referee Andre Marriner to stop the game, with Pablo Zabaleta getting angrily angry at the official and Holgate after the accident.
VAR checked for a possible red card later, but Ajeti stayed on the pitch – and Moyes believes it was the right call despite admitting he hadn’t seen a replay.
He said to the BBC: “I don’t know what they would watch, I didn’t think there was a challenge.
“I expect my middle halves to be tougher and rise and move forward with the game. That’s how I hope mine works.
“Again, I didn’t see it, so I couldn’t really tell you.”
