Winston Reid benched as West Ham draw with Bournemouth


West Ham United will feel somewhat aggrieved with their 3-3 draw to Bournemouth on Boxing Day at the Vitality Stadium, whilst fans also made a decision to tear into one of their attackers on social media.

Nathan Ake's goal-bound header was turned in at the back post by Callum Wilson, who appeared to use his arm.

MARKO ARNAUTOVIC inspired West Ham's late comeback against Bournemouth on Tuesday - however not everything went the Hammers forward's way.

"I don't know how or why he [Madley] would have to go to him if the linesman gives an offside".

'The decision (over offside) was tight, but I thought once the flag had gone up that it wouldn't be given, especially because of the length of the conversation they had'.

I think Madley was trying to be too clever by ignoring his assistant and he has to show trust in his colleague. "He said the assistant referee only put his flag up to draw attention to it, and I've never heard of that ever".

David Moyes' side had taken an early lead, when James Collins put them in front inside the first ten minutes, however, the Cherries levelled the fixture through Dan Gosling 30 minutes into the first-half.

"We're disappointed because we're in the dying minutes and we've got ourselves 3-2 up", Moyes added. We'd fought back although we weren't great throughout all of the game.

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe was left to lament losing star striker Jermain Defoe to a 10-week recovery period after an ankle fracture.

Despite the draw Bournemouth equalled their worst winless Premier League run, as they moved to eight league matches without victory.

"I think there were some actions today where we were a bit unlucky, but we were lucky because Bournemouth had one or two chances as well".

The West Ham winger knows his side played very well in the game, but were unable to secure all three points as Bournemouth scored a contentious equalizer.
