West Ham boss Slaven Bilic has confirmed the club will appeal Cheikhou Kouyate’s red card against Blackburn.

The Senegal midfielder is facing a possible ban after referee Jon Moss sent him off for a foul on Adam Henley in the FA Cup win over Rovers, but Bilic did not believe it was a goalscoring opportunity so should not have been a red.

“I haven’t seen the replay, but from my position I am not happy with that,” said Bilic. “I know the ball went to Randy (Darren Randolph), our keeper, so it is definitely not a goalscoring opportunity.

“A foul okay, but not a red card so we are going to appeal and I think we have a really strong case.”

The Hammers have been drawn away to either Manchester United or Shrewsbury Town in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.
