“How is this not a penalty” – 66 years-old English sports presenter Richard Keys break silence and question VAR over unseen incident during Manchester United vs West Ham United (3-0)

Richard Keys criticized VAR for something that didn’t happen during Manchester United’s win over West Ham on Sunday.

United easily beat West Ham 3-0 at Old Trafford. This was a much easier win than their exciting 4-3 win at Wolves on Thursday.

Rasmus Hojlund scored a beautiful goal for the home team in the middle of the first half, putting them ahead. Alejandro Garnacho scored twice in the second half to seal the win.

Erik ten Hag’s team earned to win, but the Hammers might be a little upset that they didn’t get a penalty in the first half.

After 10 minutes, there was still no goal, and United star Casemiro looked like he had West Ham player Edson Alvarez in his grasp at a corner.

The Brazilian was seen on TV with his hands around his opponent’s neck, but the VAR did not step in and the game went on.

After about 10 minutes, Hojlund put United ahead, and David Moyes’ team couldn’t catch up.

Taking to X (formerly Twitter), broadcaster Keys talked about how confused he was about the choice not to punish.

“I can’t post moving pics so this will have to do,” he stated. “Why isn’t this a pen?” As you can see, Casemiro has Alvarez by the throat. Why do we have VAR if not to see things like this? He stops him from getting the ball.

With the win, United moved up to sixth place in the Premier League table, five games without losing in a row. They passed West Ham in the standings.

In all divisions, West Ham hasn’t won in six games. They recently lost points to struggling Sheffield United and were knocked out of the FA Cup by Championship team Bristol City.

It was a good afternoon for United, but it cost them something. Defender Lisandro Martinez limped off the field in the middle of the second half because he looked like he hurt his knee when he got into a fight with Vladimir Coufal.

The Argentine had only played four times since coming back from a long-term foot injury.

Ten Hag said of Martinez’s new injury after the game, “It seems bad.” We need to wait and get the right evaluation in the next few days. Then we’ll see. “We can only pray that it’s not too bad.”
