David Moyes and West Ham fumed with VAR again but grinned as Andriy Yarmolenko scored a 3-2 victory over Chelsea in a rollercoaster crash.

The Ukrainian pounced for a critical three-point claim in the final seconds as the Hammers battled to stay up.

Tomas Soucek was the unfortunate VAR target against Tottenham last week, having been awarded his own goal after being hit by an opponent on his way to him.

Yet West Ham’s defender was again disappointed after thinking he ‘d put his side in the lead in the London derby.

He encountered a corner that came through the goalmouth of Michail Antonio and turned it in through his leg.

Yet his celebration was quickly cut short as the referee turned to VAR for checking if the prone Antonio was offside by obstructing goalkeeper Kepa ‘s vision.

After an agonizing five-minute wait-NO GOAL, it was the news that no Hammers fan needed to hear.

During the Spurs defeat, Moyes, who was disappointed with VAR ‘s decision, looked furious again and converted his frown into a glare seconds after the restart of play.

Issa Diop has fouled Christian Pulisic inside the opposite box and Willian has maintained his composure off the spot to put Chelsea ahead.

Moyes paced up and down his technical area, as his rage threatened to spill over, but justice was then served seconds before the break. And it was the man Soucek was again involved in the heart of it as he went down and in in the first half of the pause, to level things up.

Nonetheless, TV footage revealed that Moyes had not cheered the result, maybe half-expecting it to be called out again by those annoying VAR bods at Stockley Park.

Yet in the second half, things got even better just over five minutes as Antonio also got his revenge by firing in from close range to bring the Hammers up 2-1.

Nonetheless, the relegation-threatened Hammers could not hold on to three precious points, as they suffered another Willian courtesy blow.

But Yarmolenko would have the last laugh, as he hit three crucial points in the dying seconds after a counter-attack.
