West Ham 2-2 Burnley: Danny Ings scores stoppage-time equaliser to earn battling point for Hammers

West Ham

Danny Ings salvaged a point for West Ham, minutes after being denied an equaliser by VAR, in an entertaining 2-2 draw against relegation-threatened Burnley.

David Datro Fofana’s thunderbolt rewarded the Clarets’ enterprising start in east London, and it was two by the break when Konstantinos Mavropanos’ own goal capped a woeful display from the Hammers.

David Moyes’ side came back out reinvigorated and halved the deficit within seconds of the restart thanks to Lucas Paqueta’s composed finish, which seemed as though it would spark a comeback.

It was not until the 86th minute that signs of that comeback came, when Ings came off the bench to find the net, only for a VAR review to disallow the goal after Michail Antonio had strayed offside in the build-up.

But the striker found himself on the scoresheet in the 91st minute, after controlling a cross and firing past James Trafford, breaking the hearts of Burnley, who had looked on course for a first win since December 23.

The Clarets do move off the bottom of the table, above Sheffield United into 19th, but still 10 points from safety with 10 games to play. West Ham stay seventh, four points behind Manchester United.
