Bournemouth and West Ham played out a thrilling 3-3 draw at Dean Court this afternoon that is guaranteed to entertain neutral viewers of Match of the Day.
There were costly slips, late goals aplenty, and centre-backs on the scoresheet — everything you’d expect from a Boxing Day fixture.
However, the whole affair was somewhat tarnished by West Ham’s kitman.
£25million Marko Arnautovic spent the first half playing with somebody else’s name on the back of his shirt…
Arnoutovic? Never heard of him…
It’s a simple mistake and probably didn’t ruin the game for any normal people out there but it shook us to our very core.
It reminded us of those knock-off imitations brands…
Thankfully, Arnautovic emerged for the second half with a new shirt on his muscular back with his name spelt correctly.
And it seemed to do him wonders as the Austrian scored two goals between the 80th and 89th minutes.
First he capitalised on Asmir Begovic’s unfortunate slip to equalise…
Moments later the former Stoke player thought he had grabbed a winner when a rebound fell into his path from a few yards out.
However, Callum Wilson replied with a controversial equaliser in stoppage time.
The Cherries’ forward initially had his header disallowed for offside but referee Bobby Madley reversed the decision and allowed the equaliser to stand.
West Ham were livid and many thought Wilson was not only offside, but the crucial finish came off the 25-year-old’s hand.
James Collins had given the visitors the lead with a powerful header from a set-piece.
Dan Golsing and Nathan Ake struck either side of half-time to put the hosts ahead before the game’s dramatic climax.
Still shame about Arnie’s shirt, eh?
