Dermot Gallagher gives verdict on Callum Wilson goal against West Ham

West Ham United manager David Moyes admitted he was mystified after referee Bobby Madley overruled his assistant and allowed a last-gasp equaliser by Bournemouth's Callum Wilson to stand in Tuesday's 3-3 draw on the south coast.

Arnautovic said: "It can't be a goal for Bournemouth and it has to be a red card for Bournemouth, but that is football". You could question the offside because it looks pretty level. The worst part is that it's a Bournemouth player who puts the ball in the net with the top of his arm.

In a contest that swung one way and then the other, James Collins fired West Ham in front after seven minutes before goals from Dan Gosling and Nathan Ake turned the match on its head. I have no hesitation in playing any of them, so I don't think Jermain's injury forces my hand at all. "We entertained everybody this Boxing Day and I hope people enjoyed the match, but I would have enjoyed it more if we had won". I don't know if I can be happy with this one point because, for me, the three points were taken away from us.

"We're lacking quality", Moyes said after the latter game.

But Klopp said: "We don't talk about that". "We can't ignore that, but apart from that, not really". He showed a reaction like human beings do. "That's how it is".

The 3-3 draw wasn't enough for Bournemouth to escape the relegation zone, though Howe was pleased that his side were able to refind their identity, as well as clinch a significant draw.

West Ham United have officially confirmed their starting line-up and substitutes to take on Bournemouth in a Premier League clash at the Vitality Stadium this afternoon.

Asmir Begovic made two blunders to allow Marko Arnautovic to bag a brace in the final ten minutes, although a refereeing decision cost them two precious points. "We showed great spirit and great energy to stay in the game, but we've got to defend much better than we have done today".
