Doucoure hands it to Wolves
Watford snatched a 2-2 draw against Southampton at Vicarage Road with a controversial late goal from Abdoulaye Doucoure, which looked to have been handball.
Midfielder James Ward-Prowse put the visiting Saints ahead and added a second just before halftime. Striker Andre Gray then reduced the deficit on 58 minutes with a close-range header after Daryl Janmaat’s effort hit the bar.
With 90 minutes on the clock, French midfielder Doucoure stooped to bundle the ball in – but appeared to have used his hand.
Meanwhile, West Ham romped to a 4-1 victory at Huddersfield to give manager David Moyes his 200th Premier League win.
Irons captain Mark Noble broke the deadlock on 25 minutes when he capitalised on some wayward defending by Joe Lolley. But the Huddersfield man then made amends with a curled solo effort.
The Hammers were undaunted and roared back ahead, Argentine playmaker Manuel doubling up after Mark Arnautovic’s tap-in.
Crystal Palace continued their improvement under Roy Hodgson after a 1-0 win over Burnley at Selhurst Park, secured with a goal from midfielder Bakary Sako on 21 minutes.
Newcastle, though, had to settle for a 1-1 draw against bottom club Swansea at St James’ Park.
Jordan Ayew headed the Swans ahead, only for substitute Joselu to level.
West Brom beat Brighton 2-0 at The Hawthorns for a first Premier League win since August 19.
