West Ham’s David Moyes and Declan Rice escape FA charge for furious VAR criticism

David Moyes and Declan Rice have escaped being charged by the FA for their comments following West Ham’s disallowed equaliser at Chelsea on Saturday — but the Hammers boss could still face action for allegedly confronting the referee.

Refereeing chiefs have admitted they made a mistake, after West Ham were denied a deserved point at Stamford Bridge when referee Andrew Madley was summoned by the VAR to review Maxwel Cornet’s would-be leveller, with the effort chalked off for a supposed foul by Jarrod Bowen on goalkeeper Edouard Mendy.
