EPL: Mendy accused of ‘faking injury’ in West Ham win, Chelsea decision labelled ‘disgrace’

Chelsea goalkeeper, Eduoard Mendy, has been accused of “faking injury” in the 2-1 win over West Ham on Saturday.

A controversial VAR decision saw the Hammers leave Stamford Bridge empty-handed.

The visitors found themselves losing 2-1 in the closing stages of the game and thought they had snatched a valuable point through Maxwel Cornet’s goal.

Cornet smashed the ball home after pouncing on a loose ball inside the area, following a poor claim from Mendy.

However, their celebrations were cut short as VAR chalked the goal off due to a foul on Mendy by Jarrod Bowen.

Hammers boss, David Moyes, was left furious with the call.

When asked about the incident in his post-match press conference, Moyes replied: “The goalkeeper comes out and fumbles… then acts as if it’s a shoulder injury!

“I thought, ‘there’s no way he’s overturning this’… it was a ridiculously bad decision. I’d question VAR today as much as the referee.

“The sad thing is this is the level of our elite refereeing at the moment. The goalkeeper tried to fake an injury on our first goal as well. So he’s done the same on the second goal.”
