West Ham star’s honesty about Arsenal challenge was harshly punished with a yellow card, says ex-ref

“Obviously Bowen’s been very honest and he’s gone up to Mike Dean and said ‘he’s not touched me’, which is why I think Mike cautioned him for simulation. I’m not sure he needed to do that, it probably could’ve been handled better by Mike, but fair play to Jarrod Bowen for getting up and saying there wasn’t any contact.

“Having said that, looking at it at a different angle, you could argue that Wet Ham deserved a free-kick because Bowen felt he needed to take evasive action. It’s subjective and Mike Dean saw it that way because of Bowen’s honesty.”

West Ham manager David Moyes was also not happy with Arsenal’s second goal due to a handball by Rob Holding in the build-up, but Halsey has reminded the Hammers boss that this was perfectly within the laws of the game.
