A late Gareth McAuley goal earned West Brom a dramatic draw at the London Stadium on Saturday, after West Ham had looked set to secure a precious three points.

That late goal understandably left Hammers’ boss Slaven Bilic tearing his hair (transplant) out, with the Croatian manager taking out his frustrations on a pitch-side TV microphone.

Nacer Chadli had opened the scoring for West Brom on just six minutes, courtesy of a fine individual effort.

However, second-half goals from Sofiane Feghouli and Manuel Lanzini looked to have won the game for the hosts.

But with the game well into stoppage-time, Jonny Evans’ header from a corner was directed into the goal by fellow defender McAuley to earn a point for the Baggies.

Not surprisingly, Bilic was fuming, with the mic taking the full brunt of his anger.

Bilic was sent to the stands for his actions, which capped a painful few minutes for the 48-year-old.

West Ham drop to 10th while Tony Pulis’ West Brom stay eighth.
