With seconds remaining in their 2-1 loss to the Irons, Wolves captain Kilman had a stoppage-time header disallowed by video assistant refereeing a play after striker Tawanda Chirewa was adjudged to have been offside and impeding West Ham goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski’s line of sight.

“By trying to defend the ridiculous decision to disallow Wolves’ equalizer yesterday, the PGMOL are only making matters worse,” Keys stated. They’re lost in the law. The ball’s trajectory did not pass over the attacker’s head. Well to the right, that is. It was a really reasonable objective.
Aside from the absurdity and late VAR drama, West Ham’s comeback in the second half was a sharp contrast to their late-game display against Newcastle on the previous Saturday, when they gave up a 3-1 lead after 76 minutes to lose 4-3 at St. James’ Park.

After trailing 1-0 at Molineux, the Hammers rallied for a much-needed three points thanks to goals from James Ward-Prowse and Lucas Paqueta in a 1-1 draw with Champions League-chasing Tottenham.

In a game dominated by set pieces, Wolves’ equalizer, had it stood, would have dealt a devastating blow to David Moyes’ team. Additionally, turning off for the last set may have undone West Ham’s evident progress.

Even with the negative publicity surrounding their recent performance, Moyes will be eager to resolve these problems before West Ham’s next game as they continue to chase Europe.
