Hammers VARy VARy lucky in overcoming unlucky Fulham

Wow! They say fortune balances out over time.  Hammers fans have felt very hard done by in recent seasons with a host of dodgy VAR decisions robbing them of crucial points in their annual European quest.

Not so today as Moyes' men enjoyed three close calls to overturn Fulham's early strike and run out 3-1 winners in a competitive clash.

First up, West ham were gifted a soft penalty after some run of the mills precorner antics where Craig Dawson hit the deck and the ref pointed to the spot!

Then, Gianluca Scamacca deftly lobbed the keeper but it appeared that the ball had (perhaps) brushed off his hand before falling to his foot. After a prolonged VAR break the goal stood!

Then in stoppage time Michail Antonio pushed past a flimsy Fulham defence but also seemed to control the ball with his hand. 

In the end, it's a valuable win and we are up to 13th with our first back to back Premiership wins in yonks and three wins in a week!

Poor Fulham though - in all honesty, they looked like a decent Premiership outfit and our money is on them staying well clear of relegation troubles as the season progresses.
