The 3-3 draw between Bournemouth and West Ham was full of controversy. Callum Wilson scored a late equaliser for the Cherries after Marko Arnautovic had scored twice for West Ham, his first after a blunder by Asmir Begovic. However, Wilson’s equaliser appeared to be both offside and handball, something flagged by the assistant referee. Bobby Madley chose to overrule the linesman and awarded Bournemouth the goal, much to West Ham’s disbelief. It was the second moment of good fortune for Bournemouth as Simon Francis was very lucky to remain on the field after a high challenge on Cheikhou Kouyate.
