Football Results: West Ham 1-1 Lyon

West Ham salvaged a draw despite playing a half with ten men as they produced one of the close football results of the weekend in the Europa League. It was an engaging first half before Aaron Cresswell was sent off in the third minute of stoppage time. Jarrod Bowen gave the hosts the lead in the 52nd minute before Tanguy Ndombele equalized in the 66th minute of the second half. Alphonse Areola pulled off a couple of crucial saves to ensure that the French side don’t take a vital lead home for the second leg.

Managers Reaction 

West Ham boss David Moyes“First thing, you need to look at the foul on Jarrod Bowen in the build-up [to Cresswell’s red card]. I think over here, our VAR would look back on that because it’s in the same phase of play. I’m certainly not going to comment about the referee. Would I take the result? Certainly. We were really resilient in the second half. When we went in at half-time knowing we had only got 10 men it made it a difficult job. We stuck at it. We had one or two opportunities ourselves but overall it was a back-to-the-wall sort of performance in the second half. But we’re still in with a good shout. I don’t know if the pressure is off because we want to get through, we want to qualify. The players stuck at it but we didn’t play well. We can hopefully play much better next week.”
