Max Kilman thought he’d scored an equaliser for Wolverhampton Wanderers in their Premier League match with West Ham United, but the goal was overturned following an on-field review for offside.

Kilman found the net with a header in the ninth minute of stoppage time, but Wolves substitute Tawanda Chirewa was in an offside position, in very close proximity to West Ham goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski. As per the Laws of the Game set by IFAB, Chirewa was "preventing an opponent from playing or being able to play the ball by clearly obstructing opponent’s line of vision".

Wolves disallowed goal

As this was a subjective decision, Video Assistant Referee Tim Robinson asked on-field referee Tony Harrington to make his way to the monitor, with the goal being ruled out.
