It’s great to welcome former Premier League referee Keith Hackett as our unique West Ham United columnist. Every week he’ll be giving his views on the largest speaking factors on the London Stadium...

Keith Hackett has insisted that Michael Oliver made a wierd name to initially hand Craig Dawson a yellow card towards Chelsea.

The ex-FIFA official admitted that VAR made the correct name for him to evaluate the incident and go on to ship him off.

Hackett admitted {that a} masking defender might have been on his thoughts, however that it was a pink card all day lengthy.

“I believe that is the proper choice,” he said

“Dawson pulled him again, I used to be stunned Oliver didn’t give a pink card immediately, however in equity, Paul Tierney got here in.

“The choice is appropriate, he’s heading for purpose, it’s a pink. it seemed fairly apparent the primary time round, however the query you ask is would that masking defender have gotten it?

“Once more, we all know when the referee is heading to the display screen he’s going to offer it. Why he gave it a yellow, is he thought there could also be a masking defender there.”

No complaints.

There can’t actually be any arguments made towards this one.

Dawson received beat for nearly the primary and solely time within the dying moments and was punished after dragging Romelu Lukaku down.

Oliver going for a yellow card shocked us at first, however within the Premier League, you realize as quickly because the officers go to the display screen, it will likely be modified.

Now, we now have to deal with out Dawson by means of his suspension with our defence already decimated as it’s within the Premier League.
