Penalty kick in the second half
West Ham were awarded a penalty in second-half stoppage time when substitute Jordan Zemula handled Vladimir Kufar’s cross, allowing Benrahma to seal the victory on the spot .
Bournemouth manager Gary O’Neill said after the game: “His hand moved towards the ball and changed the flight of the ball. I’m not surprised because it’s getting more and more ridiculous. We’ve had 10 VAR checks since I took office. , and not once did it our way”
Speaking of Jefferson Lerma’s foul on Aleksandar Mitrovic against Fulham in the Premier League, Gary O’Neill received information that Lerma had hindered Mitrovic without watching the ball. But if you look at Flynn Towns, he’ll block him on Marcos Senesi’s arm while looking at the ball in the exact opposite direction .
Bournemouth dropped to 14th, while the Hammers overtook them to rise to 10th .
