David Moyes Defends Decision To Send On Mark Noble For Last-Minute Penalty
After his decision to bring on Mark Noble to attempt an added-time penalty flopped, David Moyes said he had no regrets.
After Luke Shaw was penalized for blocking Andriy Yarmolenko’s cross with his arm, West Ham were granted a penalty kick at the death.
Moyes brought on club captain Noble, who had converted 38 of his previous 42 penalties and hadn’t missed one since December 2016, but David de Gea’s superb stop denied him a dramatic equaliser and a draw for West Ham.
De Gea’s save was a remarkable one considering he had given up 40 penalties in his previous 40 appearances. ‘I believe in David,’ Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer stated.
‘I’ve seen Mark Noble score so many penalties so of course you did feel down and out and expect to come home with one point. But luckily David has just continued his good form.’
