Emerson’s free-kick flicks off the top of the wall and loops over for a corner. West Ham desperate to get to half-time.
Falls for Dembele, he goes for goal and it’s blocked. Referee then blows for a foul and that should be the break.
The slightest of touches on the shoulder of Dembele and he went tumbling to the ground. Replays show the striker giving his teammates a wink straight after.
Foul… questionable. Goalscoring opportunity… hugely questionable. The decision stands though.
Cresswell has been shown a straight red for a challenge on Dembele! About five seconds before half-time.
Dembele had been played in, Cresswell had a slight pull of the shirt… red card. Was that a clear goalscoring opportunity?
45+1 mins: Two minutes added on at the end of the half.
Free-kick West Ham… ironic cheers go up around the stadium. Poor ball into the box though and Lyon can easily clear the danger.

Moyes and the West Ham crowd are getting rather exasperated by the refereeing so far. The game has been very stop start so far.
43 mins: Corner headed away, Rice looks to set Benrahma away on the counter… pass is blocked.
Eventually it does go out to the Algeria, he’s fairly certain he’s won a corner for his side. Referee disagrees. Very much should have been a corner – Aouar kicked it out of play.
41 mins: Terrible header from Rice and Emerson can drive at the West Ham defence.
Nobody comes out to quickly close him down so he goes for goal… not a great effort but flicks off Zouma and behind for a corner.
38 mins: Another long period of Lyon possession, but West Ham are solid in their shape.
French side struggling to do much when they have the ball for this amount of time – comfortably knocking it around at the back but that’s it really.
35 mins: West Ham players, fans and even David Moyes very unimpressed. Boateng goes down after he doesn’t get a free-kick decision and eventually the referee stops play so he can receive treatment.
Hammers had no intention of kicking the ball out, wasn’t a head injury either.
32 mins: Well-worked corner from West Ham.
Played back to Rice on the edge of the box, running onto it with his left foot. Focuses on getting it on target which he does, but not a lot of pace on the shot. Easy save.
