West Ham boss David Moyes believes managers do not want to speak out about VAR controversies because they are either ignored, fined or both.

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta launched a furious tirade against the decision to allow Anthony Gordon's winning goal for Newcastle last weekend.

But West Ham chief Moyes feels managers of clubs outside the traditional top six usually do not get listened to, and when they do they get hit in the pocket.

"My opinion doesn't really matter in what I say because you're just going to ask all the managers a similar question," said Moyes.

"We're all pretty disappointed with lots of aspects but we're also all very much in favour of trying to make it work.

"I just think we've all been disappointed with some of the officiating this season. My single opinion wouldn't matter a jot. They'll do what they need to do.

"When we're putting it over it's not getting much clout at the other end. You can ask us but we feel that we're not getting an awful lot back when we're giving it back to the officials or whoever.

"There have been a couple of big incidents that have been highlighted, but it's mainly at the top clubs.

"It's as if people don't think that some other clubs have the same problems, the same VAR problems, the same decision-making. It doesn't get the same highlight. We're all pretty disappointed by what we've been getting back.

"We don't want to do it because managers will be fined for speaking out of turn. Most managers don't want to say anything about it because we know we're locked down.

"If clubs or managers choose to have an outburst then that's their choice and they can choose to do that."

West Ham were on the right end of a VAR decision on Thursday night when Lucas Paqueta's goal was wrongly flagged for offside in the 1-0 Europa League win over Olympiacos.

The Hammers host Nottingham Forest in the Premier League on Sunday and still have a doubt over captain Kurt Zouma, who has a knee injury.

"We'll have another look at him, I've not really had a chance to hear what the medical staff have said yet," added Moyes.

"But hopefully he's making some progress and getting closer to playing."
