  • Mark Noble Came On Jarrod Bowen After Luke Shaw Acted In The Box
  • However, the 34-year-old’s weak effort was pushed away by David de Gea
  • Gary Lineker, Graeme Souness and Roy Keane all doubted the replacement
  • Jesse Lingard had just scored the winner to win it for Manchester United











Gary Lineker has criticized David Moyes’ decision to send Mark Noble on for one last gasp, which he missed when West Ham lost to Manchester United after a dramatic 2-1 defeat.

Said Benrahma and Cristiano Ronaldo’s strikes kept the game evenly balanced at halftime, before former Iron Jesse Lingard stunned the home side with a brilliant curling attempt in the 89th minute.

Moyes’ men were given the chance to equalize in the final rest of the game after a VAR check after Luke Shaw’s handball off Andriy Yarmolenko’s cross was initially waved off by referee Martin Atkinson.

Penalty specialist Noble was pitched for Jarrod Bowen, but the 34-year-old Hammer – in his last season with the club – saw his effort towards the bottom left corner fantastically pushed by David de Gea.

Immediately after the whistle, Lineker wrote on Twitter: “That is a decision I will never understand.

“It is mind-boggling to bring in a player, even so experienced and as good a penalty taker as Noble, to take a penalty without having touched the ball. The same goes for England at the European Championship.’

Guardian sportswriter Barry Glendenning tweeted that Noble’s career record of 38 penalties scored from 42 in the match left him well-rested enough to even the scores even on his first touch, to which Lineker replied: “Every tennis player hits balls just before play.” .

“Every golfer hits balls right before playing. Every footballer hits soccer balls right before playing.

‘A sub that comes on for 90+ minutes doesn’t have that luxury. The small margins make big differences.’

The win puts the Red Devils in second place as they trail leader Liverpool on goal difference alone, while the East Londoners remain eighth.

Sky Sports Super Sunday pundits Graeme Souness and Roy Keane also criticized Moyes’ trick, with the Scot saying: ‘It’s a bad decision. It’s the 94th minute. You don’t take someone who is stone cold. It’s wrong.’

“He can’t have warmed up properly. I thought De Gea would make it. To bring in a player who hasn’t had many minutes yet… there have to be players on the pitch who can score.”
