West Ham took the lead inside five minutes as a Pablo Fornals corner appeared to fly straight into the net.
Replays showed that Alisson Becker had been blocked by Angelo Ogbonna and VAR assessed whether he had used his elbow to impede our ‘keeper.
It was decided that the challenge for the ball was fair and after another check to see whether the Hammers’ defender had used his hand, the goal was finally given.
It did appear to be a goal directly from a corner but the goal has been given as an own-goal against our No.1 in a far from ideal start.

"He's completely missed it"
After a lengthy VAR review, West Ham's early goal has been allowed to stand! ✔️
It's gone down as an Alisson own goal.
