AFC Bournemouth 3 West Ham United 3

The points were shared in this bottom of the table clash but many Hammers supporters will feel that West Ham United were robbed of a win by a controversial stoppage-time equaliser scored by Callum Wilson.

With West Ham having turned a 1-0 lead into a 2-1 deficit and then fought back to lead 3-2, the equaliser was a bitter pill to swallow.

The Hammers had got off to a perfect start with James Collins scoring in the seventh-minute but Bournemouth fought back well and were level in the twenty-ninth minute when Dan Gosling equalised.

The home side then went ahead in the fifty-seventh minute when Nathan Ake scored.

But, despite being under the cosh for periods, the Hammers somehow contrived to equalise, in the eighty-first minute, when Marko Arnautovic kept his fine recent scoring record going.

Then, in the eighty-ninth minute the Hammers edged ahead when Arnautovic got his second goal of the game, a goal that looked to have given West Ham all three-points.

Sadly, fate dealt West Ham a bad hand, deep into stoppage time Callum Wilson got a touch to a header from Ake to send the home fans wild with delight. However, the referee`s assistant had his flag for offside but when the referee, Bobby Madley, consulted with the linesman a goal was given with the official, apparently, of the belief that the offside Wilson didn`t get a touch.

Two points lost, or should that be robbed?
