Football Scores: West Ham 1-1 Brighton

Neil Maupay scored a brilliant overhead kick to help Brighton hold West Ham in one of the close football scores of the midweek action in the Premier League. Thomas Soucek opened the scoring for the high-flying Hammers after a brilliant corner routine left Robert Sanchez stranded. Brighton had a number of chances to equalize but the hosts thought they went 2-0 in front when Antonio put the ball in the net. It was ruled out for offside with the visitors equalizing through Maupay in the closing minutes.

Managers Reaction 

West Ham boss David Moyes said: “I didn’t think we played well but we made enough chances to probably nick the game, but a draw was a fair result.” he added. “Obviously it was a big call for VAR which you would probably expect me not to agree with, but I’ve got real reasons not to agree with it. It’s nearly impossible to rule that goal out. The ref couldn’t do much, he didn’t see it. The only people who can make the call is the VAR.”

Brighton boss Graham Potter said: “We suffered early on tonight in terms of the scoreline which made us feel a bit vulnerable, but I thought we performed well. We kept pushing in the second half, we probably rode our luck with the goal they had disallowed, but I felt we deserved something from the game.”
