Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson on the match and having to play with 10 men: "It's decision that is hard to accept. Two challenges in the air - honest challenges - and he's been sent off.

"It's a good point before the game. But the way the game panned out I'm disappointed we didn't get more.

"Up to the sending off we were looking dangerous going forward. I was pretty confident really.We had to deal with the fact they scored a wonder goal.

"I've always been believing that if Benteke gets a run he will rediscover his form which saw him sign for Liverpool for big money and then sign for us. We'll miss him in terms of the way we want to play and it's a personal blow because he won't be able to show Liverpool what they're missing."

West Ham manager David Moyes: "It was a pretty flat display by us tonight. Not the intensity or speed in the way we've played. But we've seen that sort of flat display in a lot of Premier League games.

"Lanzini gave us a bit more creativity. Not that we were lacking it but we couldn't break down Palace. We thought we would have the creativity to do it but we didn't."

On the Benteke red card: "I didn't think it was sending off. If you jump then there's the fear of clashing of heads or flailing arms. At half-time I would have snatched your hand off for a point. Even at 10 men I didn't think we played well enough for the win."
West Ham manager David Moyes speaking to Amazon Prime: "For the first time I felt no atmosphere in the stadium. Even the 2,000 crowd made a big difference."

On Haller's spectacular goal: "I'd like him to score a tap in - I would be thrilled with that."
