WATCH: Javier Hernandez uses hand to equalise for West Ham

When you're in a relegation scrap, you need a bit of luck once in a while...

Not the kind of thing that went against Fulham as they took on West Ham on Friday night.

Leading through an early goal from Ryan Babel, Claudio Ranieri's side conceded an equaliser with half an hour played.

Javier Hernandez got the final touch, but it appeared the Mexican had used his hand - not his head - to nudge the ball over the line from close range.

Ranieri was seen making his feelings to the fourth official on the sidelines soon after.


Having equalised in controversial circumstances, West Ham took the lead within ten minutes, Issa Diop heading home a corner.
