Stan Collymore and David Gold react on Twitter to penalty shout during West Ham's match against Manchester United

West Ham Upton Park

West Ham United drew 0-0 with Manchester United earlier today.

Stan Collymore and David Gold have both taken very different opinions over a controversial decision not to award Dimitri Payet a penalty during West Ham United’s match against Manchester United earlier today.

Payet went down in the box under a challenge from Marcos Rojo in the second half, while the score was still 0-0.

At the time Payet was not awarded a penalty, but he also did not pick up a second yellow for simulation.

And West Ham co-owner Gold was left furious with Martin Atkinson’s overall performance in the match.

Collymore, however, suggested that Payet took a tumble in the box and that the attacking midfielder should have been red carded.

Atkinson’s decision not to award Payet a penalty look like it was going to dominate the headlines, but the French midfielder ensured that he was on the back pages for different reasons later on in the contest.

Payet curled in a wonderful free-kick to break the deadlock at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils did fire back through Anthony Martial in the closing stages, though, and the two sides will now meet in a replay at Upton Park to decide who books their spot at Wembley.
