Sam Allardyce wanted Mousa Dembele dismissal

Sam Allardyce is disappointed that Mousa Dembele was not shown a red card during West Ham United's defeat to Tottenham Hotspur.

West Ham United manager Sam Allardyce has revealed his anger at referee Howard Webb for not sending off Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Mousa Dembele.

Gareth Bale netted a last-gasp goal to give Spurs a 3-2 win over the Hammers at Upton Park on Monday after the hosts had twice gone in front.

However, Allardyce was disappointed that Dembele was not sent off when the scores were level.

"Consider the consistent bookings that Howard (Webb) gave our players," Allardyce told Sky Sports News. "But, after getting booked, Dembele fouled (Mohamed) Diame and the ref let it go.

"And, in the second half, he (Dembele) pulls Joe Cole back and then kicks the ball away. If he does that, he's got to send him off, that's what we're told, so I'm really disappointed.

"At 1-1, that makes a huge difference. I'll put it in my report and see if the boys agree with me. If they don't, I'd like to know why not."

West Ham face Stoke City on Saturday.
