'Zero respect, very bitter': Some Everton fans are very annoyed with what Moyes has said

Everton and West Ham played out a 1-1 draw at the London Stadium at the weekend, with David Moyes taking on his former club.

Everton fans have hit out of West Ham United boss David Moyes for his comments on Mason Holgate.

Everton centre-back Holgate went down after Albian Ateji appeared to push the back of his head into his face off the ball.

Ajeti escaped punishment via VAR, perhaps fortunately, and Moyes felt that Holgate made too much of the situation.

 

"I don't know what they were going to look at, I didn't think there was any challenge,” he said to the BBC about the Everton defender.

"I would expect my centre halves to be tougher and get up and get on with the game. That's the way I'd hope mine would work.

"Again, I've not seen it so I couldn't really tell you.”

Everton fans have hit back at their former boss though, and suggested that he is behind the times.

They have also asked why Moyes has taken such a stance on the incident if he hasn’t seen it properly, as he claimed.

Everton’s match against West Ham finished as a 1-1 draw, after a fairly even contest.

Issa Diop had given West Ham the lead, but Dominic Calvert-Lewin headed in an equaliser for the Toffees, and neither side were able to find a winner in the second half.
