Opinion: How Referee Controversial Decision Affected Manchester United In EFL Cup Match

At Old Trafford, West Ham United overcame Manchester United in the EFL's third round of the competition. Red Devils defeated West Ham United by 2:1 at the London Stadium last weekend in their fifth-weekend English Premier League game. Even though it was a difficult contest for both teams, Manchester United came out on top as Noble failed to convert a late penalty kick into a goal.

West Ham United eliminated Manchester United from the EFL Cup on Wednesday night thanks to a solitary goal scored by Manuel Lanzini at the 9 minute mark of the first half of the game. Following the events of the previous Sunday at London Stadium, it was a difficult contest for both teams.

Despite the fact that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer chose his starting eleven, most of the first team players were absent from the squad. The players who started the game were unable to withstand the amount of pressure applied by the West Ham United club. The home squad took advantage of the manager's inexperienced starting lineup to exact revenge on the red devils for the loss they suffered last Sunday.

Because of incorrect choices made by the center referee, Manchester United were unable to claim victory against the home club despite the efforts of their players throughout the match. Despite the fact that Jonathan Moss was in control of the game, he had the authority to award a penalty to Manchester United after Jesse Lingard was hauled down by Noble inside the penalty box. The center referee was expected to issue a warning to the player and then award a penalty to the other team.

It was mostly because of his contentious judgement that Manchester United lost the match against West Ham United on Sunday. He may have ended up awarding the Penalty, and the Red Devils could have ended up playing a tie.
