West Ham fans have been left fuming at VAR after Maxwel Cornet saw his goal chalked off after Jarrod Bowen was deemed to have fouled Edouard Mendy.
Mendy was forced off his line to push a ball away from danger. However, Bowen had attempted to hurdle the Senegalese shot-stopper, resulting in his trialling leg catching Mendy with minimal, if any, contact.
The Chelsea man stayed on the ground as Corner fired the ball into the net to put West Ham on level terms. But after the strike was chalked off, Hammers have taken to social media to fume at the decision.

One fan tweeted: "Honestly. It’s an absolute disgrace."
"That’s actually scandalous." a second added. A fourth added: "This is genuinely incredible. If it’s not corrupt then it’s one of the most incompetent decisions I’ve ever seen!"
And Independent writer Tom Peck added: "That’s the worst VAR decision I’ve ever seen."

To add more fury to Hammers fans, some claimed Reece James had escaped a red card offence after a video emerged of the Englishman seemingly kicking out at Michail Antonio.
James was flashed a yellow card after the incident resulted in pushing and shoving between the pair. One Hammer said: "Reece James violent conduct not worth a look but got to disallow that for breathing on the keeper. Bin it man, it's so bad."
However, some Chelsea fans believed Antonio shouldn't have been on the pitch either after an incident with Thiago Silva.
David Moyes' side are hanging perilously above the relegation zone – having only racked up four points in their opening six games of the new season.
A point against Chelsea would have put the Hammers within touching distance of the top half of the table.
