West Ham were toothless in front of goal as they fell to a 2-0 defeat away at Bournemouth.

After beating Arsenal last week, West Ham failed to build on their success and lost for the first time in 2019.

It was another missed opportunity to go up to seventh in the Premier League table as goals from reported Hammers target Callum Wilson (Daily Mail) and Josh King sealed Bournemouth’s win.

West Ham fans pointed to one key moment in the game and highlighted that as the turning point.

Andy Carroll was given a rare start in the absence of China-linked Marko Arnautovic (Daily Mail) but he failed to get on the score sheet.

The 30-year-old missed a glorious opportunity to break the deadlock in the second half when the ball dropped to him in the box.

Standing just a few yards from the goal with the Bournemouth defence stretched, Carroll sent the ball over the bar with his weaker right foot.

Shortly after, Wilson put the Cherries ahead and West Ham never recovered. Here are some things West Ham fans said about Carroll’s miss.
